The exploration of Africa is a profound and impactful event in one’s life, which will be remembered for many years to come. Botswana is fast becoming a destination of choice for parents who want their children to experience the pinnacle of that African adventure.
The Ultimate Botswana Family Safari allows for the family to experience five key ecosystems and environments within Botswana, on a fun-filled adventure of discovery, suited and focused on their specific needs. Your days will be spent on safari as you explore the wild, pristine wilderness, and there are also opportunities to engage culturally with local communities and their children. We incorporate intimate, small, and exclusive lodges, allowing for personalized service and attention to the smallest detail. The passionate lodge staff are committed to making sure your dream African family adventure becomes a reality that will be cherished for a lifetime. Your children will not forget this experience!
Part of your family’s exploration of Botswana includes taking in the wonders of the zebra migration in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, visiting a local village and school at Khumaga, experiencing the water wilderness of the Okavango Delta by boat, mokoro and educational safari walks, catching fish, safari game drives in Moremi and the Savute areas of Botswana – both renowned for their abundance in animal and bird life, and then the memory of the large herds of elephants along the Chobe River. A combination of these areas and the mix of activities and experiences are ideal to share with your children.
We have tailored the activities to ensure the safari experience is fun and educational for every family member. All children are given a Safari Bag containing activity books, check-lists, and various surprises to keep them busy during certain times of the day. Special excursions range from a donkey-cart village tour to mokoro races (dependent on water-levels), fishing trips, and a visit to a local school, while regular safari activities are planned around and adapted to the family’s wishes. As seasoned parents will recognize, flexibility is the key to success of a safari of this nature. Consequently, we highly recommend booking private activities (including guide and vehicle), which allows you to adapt the timings and duration of your outings as you wish.
Days are spent experiencing and witnessing Botswana at its best, which in itself is quite possibly one of the greatest gifts you can bestow on your children and/or grandchildren.
