Our Mahlatini family holiday specialists have travelled Botswana extensively and have hand-picked our favourite family-friendly and flexible accommodation whether this be exclusive-use camps or larger camps offering family rooms.

Many lodges and camps employ specially trained children's guides who will design a special programme for your children to suit their ages and interests. The guide/s will interpret and explain the wonders of the African bush in a fun, easy way that will ensure all ages are touched by Africa's magic. These family safari programmes are specially designed to spark curiosity and interest and are exceptionally rewarding.

We would often recommend to parents that they book a private vehicle and guide which will significantly enhance your family safari experience allowing you to set your own schedule and adapt your safari to age, interest and wishes of you and your children.

A family holiday to Botswana can be an adventure of a lifetime however it does require careful planning. Put your trust in the extensive knowledge of family holiday experts to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that you and your family feel secure and well looked after.

So positive...all the attention to detail was appreciated, and everything worked well. We had such a good time. We felt the first two camps were the better of the three...poor Savuti was so dry, so there was not much game there.
