Luxury Family Holiday to Botswana Victoria Falls and Mozambique

Inspirational safari & beach family holiday to South Africa, Mozambique, Botswana and Zimbabwe

This luxury family holiday beautifully combines 3 very distinct areas of Southern Africa, offering a truly unique holiday experience, filled with activity and excitement. It begins in Zimbabwe at the exquisite Matetsi River Lodge, offering a unique combination of scenic Victoria Falls experiences and rich wildlife viewing such as discovering the wonders of the Zambezi River on sundowner boat cruises, canoeing or fishing adventures. Yet more safari is to come with a move on to the Okavango Delta in Botswana and a stay at Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge, offering some of the most exceptional wildlife sightings in the Delta, which the family can enjoy on day and night safaris, as well as bush walks (age dependant). 

Finally, it is off to an exquisite piece of paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean, &Beyond Benguerra Island, offering pristine beaches and unspoiled coral reefs teeming with marine life. Enjoy scuba diving, snorkelling, sunset dhow cruises, sea kayaking, horse riding, castaway picnics and, of course, opportunities to lounge on the beach or at the pool.  The lodges offer fun, interactive children’s activities such as tracking and fishing, making traditional bows and arrows, beading, crafting and painting, as well as fun in the lodge garden or kitchen.
