Botswana Family Holidays

Famous for offering some of the most luxurious and exclusive (and correspondingly expensive) safari camps in all of Africa, Botswana’s high level of thoughtful service lends itself beautifully to a family safari, for the right sort of adventurous family. We do not recommend a Botswana family safari for everyone; Botswana is certainly not the first country to jump to mind when considering a family safari.
Botswana’s accommodation is typically very remote, in amongst serious wildlife, with little to attract smaller people who are used to flashing screens and 24/7 entertainment; added to which the price tag is prohibitive to most when you start adding in multiple offspring.  Show me more >

Botswana Family Safari Itinerary Suggestions

Just as with any Botswana itinerary, we’d recommend getting out to see and experience as much as possible. A popular itinerary starts off in Chobe in one of the larger lodges, a good introduction to Botswana where you can still get a phone signal and wifi. Moving from here down to the wet and wonderful Delta for unique mokoro adventures, staying at little luxury camps. For those with extra time and seriously adventurous offspring, finishing off in the remote and desolate Makgadikigadi would really showcase the best of Botswana, in our view.  Show me more >

Best Family Safari Lodges in Botswana

In the Delta, we love Footsteps Across the Delta for one of the best family safari lodges in Botswana. Their ‘Young Explorers’ package is one of the most comprehensive family safari packages we’ve ever come across, and it’s great for any age kids. And parents too, for that matter: you won’t get a watered down safari experience just because you are trailing youngsters.  Show me more >
