Botswana Family Safari


Itinerary Description:

Your Botswana family safari begins with a little relaxation in the tasteful elegance of The Saxon in Johannesburg. After a night of rest, you will arrive at the Moremi Game Reserve, one of the finest game reserves in the world, within the Okavango Delta. Spend two days at intimate and luxurious Okuti, the perfect base for a Botswana family safari from which to embark on game drives to visit the Moremi Game Reserve and elephant populations that reside here.

It is then off to Young Explorers, a Botswana family safari that operates out of Footsteps Across the Delta and a magically unique way to experience the African wilderness in the unmatched exclusivity of the Shinde private concession. This six-bedded camp is ideal for families and offers activities and safari experiences specially designed to inspire even the youngest guests. After three days at Footsteps exploring the labyrinth of lagoons, lakes, and hidden channels, transfer within the Okavango Delta to the tranquility of Kanana Camp overlooking the floodplains. While game viewing in 4x4 vehicles is certainly popular, the region around Kanana is best experienced by foot or by gliding silently through the delta on a Mokoro canoe.

Conclude your African family safari in Zimbabwe at The Elephant Camp, a secluded luxury lodge next to Victoria Falls. The Elephant Camp is the perfect gateway for all-ages activities around the falls such as elephant-back safaris, Zambezi sunset cruises, Victoria Falls canopy tours, Zambezi rafting, scenic helicopter flights, and day trips to Chobe. However, the true highlight of any visit -- especially for the youngsters -- is the up-close encounters with the lodge's Wild Horizon elephants and Sylvester, the property’s cheetah ambassador, who is known to socialize and join in on walks with guests.

NOTE:  May through October is a perfect time to visit Botswana, as the weather is cooler and dry. Flood waters arrive in June, creating deeper lagoons and an ideal setting for animal viewing and boating activities.
