Botswana Family Safaris

Botswana Family sundowners-treel-10874_hi-res.jpg

A family safari to Botswana is one of the most rewarding types of holiday that one can ever imagine! Accommodation can either be in a tented camp which is set up just for your family, in a more luxurious permanent tented camp, or in a luxurious lodge – whatever takes your fancy!

In addition, we can arrange for you to spend several nights on a houseboat, where you can watch wildlife and fish as well – great fun!

Highlights of our family safari holidays to Botswana:  Read our latest blog article

  • With the very best guides imaginable, from the age of six years your children can learn how to identify the signs of the bush – the tracks left by animals, because a Botswana safari is child friendly.
  • In the Okavango Delta, they can also learn which plants and trees are used by the local people to make toothbrushes, to cure certain illnesses, as well as about the folklore attached to them.
  • See wonderful wildlife and learn all about them and their behaviour on your luxury safari.
  • Learn about the night sky and how to read it.
  • Learn how to fish for bream and tiger fish and a host of other fascinating facts, as well as bush survival skills!
  • Visit the Kalahari Desert – and see habituated meerkats at close quarters.
  • Spend time with the San or Bushmen people and learn about their culture in the Kalahari Desert as part of your family safari to Botswana.
  • Quad bike across the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi for just a few hours or take a 2-day camping trail onto the pans, sleeping beneath the stars in the Kalahari Desert with your private guide – an amazing experience!
  • Horse-ride both in the Kalahari Desert and in the Okavango Delta.
  • Go on a luxury camping safari – with your own private guide and vehicle, and have a private safari camp which is erected in the best wildlife areas and is closed to your family.
  • Combine Botswana with Livingstone or Victoria Falls – which is simply full of activities, from canoeing to white water rafting, bungee-jumping, horse-riding, elephant back riding, fishing etc.
  • For older children, they can go on a mokoro safari, which is a canoe that the rivermen use – camping overnight on an island, or even take a canoe safari for several days (minimum age 16).
  • We also have a speed-boating safari for those who want to explore the delta by powerboat.

For those who want a beach experience afterwards, combine Mozambique with Botswana! Contact us now to create your Botswana family safari - the safari of a lifetime!

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
