Victoria Falls Botswana and Seychelles Family Holiday itinerary hero

Victoria Falls, Botswana and Seychelles Family Vacation

Inspirational safari family holiday to Zimbabwe, Botswana and the Seychelles

This itinerary is designed for those families wanting to add some wildlife and adventure to their normal beach holiday. It combines a stay on Denis Island Luxury Eco-Retreat in the Seychelles with a safari in Botswana's Okavango Delta and a bucket-list visit to the world-renowned Victoria Falls.

It begins with a stay at the luxurious Matetsi Victoria Falls Lodge, located close enough to have convenient and easy access to the magnificent sights and variety of adrenalin adventures of the area. In addition, expect incredible views of the Zambezi River, game drives, sundowner boat cruises, canoeing or fishing adventures. Then fly-in by light aircraft into the spectacular Okavango Delta in Botswana, staying at Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp. You and the kids will explore the lagoons and channels of the Delta and the Okavango floodplains on day and night safaris, bush walks, mokoro (dugout canoe) and powerboat cruises.

Conclude this adventure-of-a-lifetime with a very different kind of island beach holiday. Denis Island has no mobile phone signal and no in-room internet or cable television, but Wifi is available at the main lobby. It's a tropical paradise for the whole family to unplug from digital distraction and reconnect to the loved ones you hold dear, and to the earth that you share with them. Denis Island offers a host of child-friendly activities which include treasure hunts, baking, visits to the giant tortoises, collecting chicken eggs on the island farm, and kids' bicycles. It's the perfect island paradise to enjoy some precious family time together.
