The perfect Botswana family holiday.
A first safari experience is something that stays with you for a very long time
Richard, our specialist says;
Many of us remember our first safari, it’s an experience which never leaves you. This is why we have put together the perfect Botswana family holiday.
With a number of camps open to children we have selected a few which really stand out for us and offer unforgettable experiences for all ages. Starting with 3 nights in Khwai tented camp in a family tent you will be immersed right into incredible game viewing. The Khwai area is known for its high density of predators which are patrolling the bank of the khwai river. Leopard, wild dog, lion and hyena are abundant here so 3 nights is the perfect number to settle into safari life. You will then fly deep into the heart of the Okavango Delta for 3 nights in what can only be described as on of the best game viewing areas in Africa and 3 nights in a family chalet at Splash Camp is all you need to experience all it has to offer. Fly north to spend your final 3 nights at Linyanti Camp nestled in between the Okavango Delta and the Chobe National park. Staying in a family tent this camp is a great base to explore and spend intimate time as a family in a small personal camp.
