These are images of  luxury Botswana safari camp that set stage for Harry and Meghan’s love to blossom when he whisked her away to celebrate her 36th birthday in ‘Africa’s last Eden’

This is the secret hideaway where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s love blossomed – in front of a stunning backdrop of the African bush, overlooking the sparkling Boteti river.

On Meghan’s first ever wildlife safari for her 36th birthday, the couple watched the sun set behind a spectacular vista of acacia thorn trees and green-backed herons fishing in the river.

There are few more romantic destinations in the world. One of the first sights that greeted Harry and Meghan was a herd of dozens of zebra appearing in front of their luxury tent.

Meno a Kwena (which means ‘teeth of the ‘crocodile) is the luxury safari camp in Botswana that hosted the royal couple.

From their luxury accommodation, they were able to watch the wildlife at close quarters as they ate supper on the veranda, with its dining table, buckskin rugs and day-bed offering a comfortable vantage point

At night, lions roared close by, and on Meghan’s birthday she woke at dawn to a noisy orchestra of pied kingfishers and barred owls and the sight of the spectacular African fish eagle swooping on its prey.

The staff had arranged for Harry and Meghan to stay in safari tent 5, with its king-size bed, open-air shower and hand-carved furniture. Teak chests and explorers’ trunks dotted the bedroom, with kilim rugs on the floor. But its biggest attraction is the spectacular veranda offering a breathtaking view of a broad bend in the Boteti river where elephant, zebra and wild buck come to drink each evening.
