Botswana is without doubt one of Africa's best game-viewing destinations, so you and your family can be assured of a phenomenal wildlife-packed safari in this safe and well-connected country, well known for its luxurious lodges and smooth-running logistics.
Top of the list for a Botswana family safari is the Okavango Delta, an enormous freshwater wetland and quite literally an oasis in the middle of the Kalahari. The game viewing is superb but it's the Chobe National Park that often provides the biggest thrills with its 70 000 elephants, huge herds of buffalo and prowling prides of lion.
Game drives get you close to thrilling wildlife sightings, and mokoro safaris are sure to be a true safari hit! Sitting back in a canoe drifting down a papyrus-flanked channel, you get to slow right down and spend quality time together. Leave the cellphone, forget the playstation and ditch the laptop – this is a time to catch up and share an unforgettable experience that you’ll be talking about for years to come.
While Botswana is a great destination for children it is fair to say that kids aged 12 and over will get the most out of this safari experience. We have a range of recommended accommodation with family facilities and even children's programmes, but often these lodges require that you hire a private vehicle for your game drives if you have children under 12, which makes things slightly more costly.
