Family Safari and Victoria Falls

Inspirational family safari to Botswana and Zimbabwe

This fun-filled exploration will have your family marvelling at the glittering waters of Botswana's Okavango Delta surrounded by wildlife, seeing the iconic Victoria Falls and finally, luxury camping in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park, home to the "Presidential Herd" of elephants. Perfectly planned to ensure a smooth transition from one stop to the next with short light aircraft flights, these 3 stops will offer maximum fun and enjoyment.

First, Machaba Camp, perched on the edge of the Okavango Delta, offering the dual advantage of viewing large wildlife populations and exploring the tributaries of the Delta's outer reaches in a mokoro canoe (age dependant). Next, the Victoria Falls Hotel, where there is a myriad of activities suitable for all ages within easy reach of the hotel. Finally, inspired by safaris of the past, Verney's Camp in the spectacular Hwange National Park, has views over a waterhole, where the animals put on a daily parade as they come down for their evening drink.
