Classic Okavango Delta family safari in Botswana

This family adventure safari provides the ultimate holiday for families who want to travel together and experience the legendary African Safari. Botswana's Okavango Delta is one of the best-known wilderness areas on Earth and a truly magnificent destination.

On this Okavango Delta family safari in Botswana parents can share this dream destination with their children. Although your children can do activities on their own, the game drives, boat cruises, makoro rides and night drives can be done together as a family.

The guides are trained in looking after children and they bring their heartfelt passion for the area across. This ensures that your whole family can relax and enjoy a true adventure safari together.

Day 1: Johannesburg - Maun - Okavango

Arriving in Maun from Johannesburg you will be transferred to your child-friendly bush camp in the Okavango Delta in a light aircraft, viewing the amazing patterns of this wetland wonderland from the air. You will arrive in time for lunch before settling in with your family in anticipation of your safari together.

You will be in the heart of the Delta meaning that the activities are water-based and at night, you can lie awake and listen to the sounds of the nocturnal creatures.

Day 2: Okavango

You rise early this morning as you look forward to activities in this area that will have you awed at every moment. The guides will point out the fascinating creatures of the Delta and all the intricacies of this complicated wetland. You will return to the bush camp for brunch after which the guides spend time telling wonderful stories to the family.

There will be time to relax together and reminisce about the morning activity as you look to what lies ahead on your family safari. Tea is served before the late afternoon activity, and there may even be time for a Sundowner before you head back to the bush camp.

Day 3: Okavango

Today you will head out across the Delta to your next camp situated in the South Western floodplains, certainly one of the most beautiful areas in Africa. The bush camp you will stay at for the next 2 nights has a special deck for children with a swimming pool.

Day 4: Okavango

An early start will allow you to experience the sunrise in the Okavango. The activities will depend on the season and the level of water. At high water, activities will revolve around boat cruises and dugout canoe rides and at low water, game drives will be the chosen activity.

The family can enjoy the morning activities together and then after brunch, choose to relax by the pool, take a nap or play in the children's area. The afternoon activity will also depend on the water levels but there will always be the opportunity for a night drive to experience the dramatic interactions of the nocturnal creatures.

Day 5: Okavango - Maun - Johannesburg

Your Botswana family holiday draws to a close, but there will be time this morning for an activity before flying into Maun to catch the onward flight to Johannesburg.
