Spend eight adventure-filled days in two of Botswana’s most rewarding wilderness destinations, the Kalahari and Okavango Delta. Designed for intrepid families, this safari expedition showcases the glowing expanse of the Makgadikgadi Pans and the game-rich floodplains of Khwai Private Reserve – one of Botswana’s best-kept secrets.

Kick off your family vacation at the laidback Camp Kalahari, one of only three camps situated in a private wildlife reserve three times the size of Los Angeles. Set among the undulating palm trees of Brown Hyena Island, Camp Kalahari will be your base for exploring the desert and Makgadikgadi Pans on quad biking and horse-riding excursions, as well as nature walks and game drives.

Next stop: Meno a Kwena (translated as ‘teeth of the crocodile’). This hidden gem of a camp is perched on a rocky clifftop overlooking the alluring Boteti River. The camp’s lofty position offers a fantastic vantage point of the animals that come to drink from the river. Botswana’s dazzling zebra migration is resident here for most of the year, and during the dry season (about May to October) the Boteti River is a magnet for a myriad of animals. Enjoy game drives in the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, boat cruises along the Boteti (water levels permitting) and viewing wildlife at eye-level from a floating photography hide.

Conclude your family safari in Botswana at a luxury camp perfectly set on the banks of a lily-covered lagoon in the exclusive Khwai Private Reserve. This wildlife sanctuary is home to spirited pods of hippo, elephants, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rare wild dog. Go on morning, afternoon and night game drives or float quietly through the tranquil waterways on a mokoro – the Okavango Delta’s quintessential game-viewing vehicle.

Meet the resident meerkat family, the Kalahari’s very own ‘cool cats’, who love nothing more than using unsuspecting guests as lookout posts. Join the Zu’hoasi Bushmen, indigenous hunter-gatherer groups who are the first nations of Southern Africa, on fascinating nature walks through the desert.
