The spectacular sustainable safari lodge where the newly-engaged Royal couple celebrated Meghan's birthday with a night under the stars
When news broke of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement, the nation tuned in to the Royal couple musing over the milestones of their 18-month-long romance, including meeting the Queen and her corgis, moving into Kensington Palace's idyllic Nottingham Cottage, and spending their third date in the dream-like wilderness of Botswana. "We camped out under the stars where we were really by ourselves - it was crucial to me to make sure we had the chance to get to know eachother," said Prince Harry.
The couple re-visited last summer to celebrate Meghan's 36th birthday, where they stayed at the £650-a-night sustainable safari lodge , a favourite of Prince Harry who's been visiting Botswana for more than 20 years (Meghan's engagement ring includes a diamond from the African country). Overlooking the Boteti River watering hole, the camp has nine luxurious tents, minimally decorated with rustic wooden furniture that compliments the natural surroundings, with colourful Moroccan rugs and cushions for comfort. From here, Prince Harry and Meghan visited the Okavango Delta, the king of the African safari, where the "Big Five" congregate on epic salt flats surrounded by canyons.
