Sure, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding isn't until May 19, but we are already thinking about their honeymoon.
This globe-trotting duo really could be going anywhere in the world once they exchange their vows, but according to several tabloid reports, the latest royal honeymoon rumor is that Namibia, Africa will be their destination of choice.
In Namibia, the newlyweds would be in total seclusion and likely far away from any fans or photographers as they took part in a safari tour with a luxury lodging company. Reports claim their company of choice will be Natural Selection.
“We think frills are great, but they are no match for thrills, especially when it comes to African safaris. Don’t get us wrong, we love a great bottle of wine and soft sheets as much as anyone. But for us, the greatest luxury of all, by far, is experience,” the tour company says on its website. “That’s why we’re creating a portfolio of welcoming camps and one-of-a-kind experiences that are full of unique soul and colorful character, with extraordinary staff, located in the very heart of where the wild things are.”
Its latest offering, The Cut reported, is in the Hoanib Valley Camp of Namibia. This trip is particularly remote as its basecamp is a four-hour drive from the nearest town.
Of course, the couple could always opt for one of the tour company’s safaris through Botswana, where they vacationed in celebration of Meghan’s 36th birthday just prior to announcing their engagement. There, the couple reportedly spent time visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Okavango Delta, which is home to plenty of wildlife and natural features that include the dried crystalline salt flats.
Though, no matter what tour they may choose with Natural Selection, it will be up to their standards for conservation and giving back. According to the tour company’s site that is a key tenant of their organization.
“At Natural Selection, conservation is at the heart of everything we do. The loss of any natural habitat, in Africa or other, is a sobering loss for us all, and we want to do something about it,” the company wrote. “We want to make a difference. To start with, we are pledging 1.5% of our gross revenue to wildlife conservation. Our donations are built into our business model and based on our overall income, not just our profit. We are wholeheartedly embracing our commitment to Africa's wildlife.”
If you want to travel like Meghan and Harry might, tours with Natural Selection start at just a few hundred dollars a night. But before you book, make sure to read up on all the top safari companies in the world. We promise, they will all make you feel like royalty.
