The itinerary provides activities the whole family can enjoy together. There are also opportunities for the kids to be active while the parents relax and enjoy the peace of Africa. Over delicious meals you can reminisce about your daily adventures and enjoy quality family time in the wilderness.
Day 1: Johannesburg – Maun – Okavango Delta
After your flight from Johannesburg, there is a short air transfer from Maun in a light aircraft over the Okavango Delta to your child friendly bush camp where you will spend the next 2 nights with your family. Situated in the northern reaches of the Delta, the area is a mixture of seasonal floodplains and permanent water.
Day 2 & 3: Okavango Delta
Activities at the bush camp include game drives, night drives, dugout canoes and walks. Your knowledgeable safari guides will ensure that you get the best overall experience. These guides will interact with the kids, paying them special attention while the parents relax and enjoy the safari.
The guides will share the secrets of this spectacular area on game drives and water activities aimed at fun and learning for the whole family.
Day 4: Okavango Delta – Savute
Today you will fly over the Okavango on the next leg of your family adventure to your bush camp in the legendary Savute area. The camp overlooks a small waterhole that attracts wildlife, but you can explore the area further on game drives in search of the predators that have made Savute famous.
Day 5 & 6: Savute
The whole dynamic of the Savute area has changed over the past 2 years with the channel that had been dry for 25 years suddenly flowing again. The wildlife has had to adapt to these changes and this is where the fascination of Savute comes in. This phenomenon can be explored on game drives around the area.
Situated away from the channel the camp has a waterhole in front that attracts animals, reminiscent of the Savute of the past – but it is close enough to experience the new Savute of water. This is the perfect African family holiday and one that will linger in your memories for years to come.
Day 7: Savute – Maun - Johannesburg
There will be time for a morning activity before your flight to Maun and the flight connection to Johannesburg.
