Prince Harry has swapped a tent in the desert for a tent on a houseboat – and nights under the stars with girlfriend Chelsy Davy.

British papers ran photographs Tuesday of Harry and Chelsy’s waterborne hideaway in Botswana, a rickety houseboat with a tent perched on its roof.

The couple, who reunited last week at Prince Charles’s Highgrove country estate, have spent several days in the faraway locale, getting up late and making their own breakfast on a small gas cooker before cruising the waterways of the Okavango Delta, home to crocodiles and hippos.

The southern African country is a favorite destination of the prince. It is four years since he told fellow travelers around a campfire in Maun, Botswana, that he had met a stunning Zimbabwean girl.

“He was quite besotted,” Gary Robinson told PEOPLE at the time.

When he returns to the U.K. he will join the rest of his Blues and Royals regiment on their return from Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, in the sibling revelry department, Harry’s elder brother Prince William, and his girlfriend, Kate Middleton, enjoyed a quiet Sunday afternoon with a couple of friends in a London pub – the Builder’s Arms, located in a quiet street off the lively King’s Road in Chelsea.
