Known as the ‘Jewel of Africa’ for its varied, unspoilt wilderness

No other holiday will beat a safari among the abundant wildlife of Botswana

Botswana may not have been in the top ten of family holiday destinations a few years ago, but it is fast becoming an extremely popular place to go. With a vast land area and small population, Botswana offers more truly wild areas with spectacular landscapes and wildlife. The famous Okavango Delta provides endless natural waterways that attract an array of animals, while the Chobe National Park enjoys a huge elephant population – giving Botswana a bigger elephant population than any other country. In the south, the Kalahari Desert is worlds away from the Delta, but attracts just as much diversity in wildlife.

Botswana features many family-friendly lodges that provide activities such as walking safaris and horse riding, along with the traditional game drives. The accommodation provided by such camps often include two-bedroom tents or adjoining rooms with a connecting doorway. Most of the lodges specify that children must be 12 and over, though some go as young as six, and others as old as 16.

To really make the most of a safari trip with your family, you might want to consider booking a private vehicle and guide. This may sound like a hassle (though Far & Wild will, of course, make all the arrangements for you), but will enable you to set your own timetable and adapt your itinerary to the needs of your children.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
