Luxury Botswana Family Safari

Inspirational safari family holiday to Botswana

The ultimate in family travel to Botswana, this trip offers your family the chance to experience some of the most incredible wildlife areas in Africa, all in unparalleled luxury. With a private vehicle and guide for the duration of your trip, this itinerary offers great flexibility, as well as plenty of fun-filled interactive experiences, valuable cultural interactions and opportunities for learning and bonding as a family. Your first stay is at DumaTau Camp, in the Linyanti region. The area is famous for its big herds of elephant and buffalo, particularly in the dry season from July to October. At Vumbura Plains Camp in the famous Okavango Delta you will get to experience one of the top concessions for wildlife in this amazing paradise. Famous for its predators such as lion and leopard as well as rarer species such as wild dog and Sable Antelope.

Last but not least, the beautiful Jack's Camp in the Makgadikgadi Pans. The camp itself is an eclectic mix of classic safari style and historical artifacts. The area surrounding Jacks camp is vastly different to those experienced in the north from the endless horizons of the Makgadikgadi Pans to the savanna of the Kalahari. The animals and experiences here are also entirely unique from walking with a family of habituated meerkats and searching for the elusive brown hyenas to quad biking on the salt pans and experiencing the ancient bushman culture.
