Botswana, a top destination for luxury safaris, recognized same-sex relationships in 2019. With low tourist density and lavish lodges, Botswana offers unmatched privacy amid diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife. Whether on a water safari in the Okavango Delta, exploring Chobe reserves, or venturing into the Kalahari desert, encounters with fellow travelers are minimal.


Discover Rwanda, a destination that not only captivates with its rare mountain gorillas but also stands as a beacon of progress in LGBTQ+ rights within East Africa. Same-sex relationships are legal in Rwanda, distinguishing it from its neighboring countries. Experience the beauty of Rwanda and its fascinating wildlife while knowing that you are welcomed and respected.
