Luxury Zambia and Botswana Family Vacation

Inspirational safari family holiday to Botswana and Zambia

This luxury family safari takes in 3 of Africa's most iconic regions: the beautiful South Luangwa in Zambia, the world-renowned Victoria Falls and the wildlife-rich Okavango Delta in Botswana. Beginning in the South Luangwa, the family will stay at Chinzombo Camp, arguably Zambia's most luxurious camp. The Luangwa river teems with hippo and crocodile and provides a lifeline for one of the greatest diversities of habitat and wildlife, supporting more than 60 species of mammals and over 400 species of birds. During your stay you will enjoy game drives and guided walks with expert guides. It is then on to one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls, staying at Tongabezi Lodge, a luxury hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi River. Not only can you enjoy trips to the Falls but a host of other activities from a swim in Devil's Pool directly overlooking the Falls to sunset boat cruises, white water rafting, cultural tours and many more.

Conclude this fabulous safari holiday with the family travelling into Botswana's lush waterway, the Okavango Delta, known for being one of Africa's greatest wildlife sanctuaries. Stay at Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge which offers some of the most exceptional wildlife sightings in the Delta, which your family can enjoy on day and night safaris, as well as bush walks. Throughout this trip you will expertly guided and receive personalised service to suit your individual family's needs.
