the camps cost best season activities map of the area

The Safari Company offers you and your family the opportunity to experience the real Africa on a family adventure safari in the untouched wilderness of northern Botswana.

We specialise in making trips to Africa exciting, adventurous, and educational for parents and children alike - oh and best of all - fun! A family safaris specialist guide ensures that this Botswana safari is an adventure of a lifetime for the whole family.

We plan the vacation around your family’s specific interests and expectations. What makes these trips so unforgettable is that you can never anticipate reactions to animals, sleeping under canvas with the wilderness "just outside", the first time a lion roar is heard, and so many other first experiences that are shared in this part of Africa.

Children participate in extra activities such as: spoor casting, nature cards, learning how to track and ID spoor, bush survival and much more… All the Botswana camps have plunge pools and the children get to spend afternoons supervised at the pool, while mom and dad get to relax and siesta before the evening game drive. The specialist guide is passionate about the bush, interpreting these wonders in an easy to understand and fun way.

These family adventure vacations to Botswana help to educate the next generation in the importance of conserving our natural heritage, while also offering the opportunity to enjoy the vast expanse of untouched wilderness that makes up northern Botswana.

A well-planned family safari with The Safari Company will not only give you an incredible game experience in one of the wildest places on earth; but you and your family will share memories that will last a lifetime. The children has an adventure holiday so educational, they will be teaching their teachers about biology, ecology, nature studies and much more…

Young visitors to Botswana are pleasantly surprised by the safari programme. The specialist children's guide designs programmes tailored to the ages and interests of the children. Initial contact with the children begins six weeks prior to travel when they receive a parcel from the camps in Botswana containing informative material and information about their safari holiday activity programme. Once in camp, your specialist guide organises all their daily activities. Apart from the guide, this special family adventure vacation package also includes the use of a private safari vehicle with tracker for the family.

Botswana offers parents the opportunity to introduce their children to a safari in a safe yet truly wild African destination.

Great news for those families who have always wanted to travel to Africa, but were weary of malaria. Malarone has now been launched in the UK in a children's formulation and is the first ever malaria tablet designed just for kids. It is also licensed in the USA, Denmark and also has become increasingly available in Europe.

Generally, many families have held back from going to Africa on account of fear of malaria or reluctance to expose their children to possible side-effects of medication. The launch of a children’s formulation of Malarone will open up new opportunities for families wishing to travel to Africa, enabling them to do so with much greater safety and peace of mind.

Family Adventure Safari Vacation in Botswana

PRIVATE FAMILY CAMPING SAFARI
a serviced camping safari in the wilds of botswana

safari cost best season activities map of safari

The Safari Company specialises in outstanding family safaris of all kinds. We offer you and your family the opportunity to experience our carefully planned family camping safari in the wilderness areas of Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve, the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. A knowledgable guide and assistant will unlock the secrets of the African bush while staying in comfortable dome tents (put up by the staff) and enjoying dinners around the campfire, all in the privacy of exclusive bushcamps situated in the national aprks and reserves. You will travel in an open sided 4x4 Land Cruiser, perfect for game viewing and birding on those early morning and late afternoon game drives.

Herewith a sample itinerary to show you what's possible:
DAY 1: MAUN - OKAVANGO AREA OF MOREMI

Your guide welcomes you at Maun Airport and we travel to our secluded mobile bush camp in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve.

DAY 2: OKAVANGO AREA OF MOREMI
The reserve is situated in the north-eastern corner of the Okavango Delta. It is a pure wilderness area of great beauty, rich green vegetation, palm trees, teeming with birdlife and a vast population of animals. We spend our time exploring the area by boat and 4x4 vehicle during early morning and late afternoon game drives. (full board)

DAY 3/4: MOREMI WILDLIFE RESERVE
We travel to the western part of the reserve today - the Khwai flood plains - exploring the area on the way. We uncover the secrets of this wilderness area on early morning and late afternoon game drives. (full board)

DAY 5/6: SAVUTE - CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
The Savute Marsh is the deepest part of the Mababe Depression and it is the only part to have filled up with water in recent history. Today the marsh is dry and attracts a large population of animals, particularly hyena and lion. The Savute channel has a fascinating history of flooding and drying up independently of good, rainy seasons and flood levels elsewhere, a mystery that has intrigued geologists for many years. Our guide takes us on game drives in the morning and late afternoon. (full board).

DAY 7/8: CHOBE RIVER - CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
After 2 nights at the Savute Channel, we travel northwards and install our bush camp near the Chobe River. Chobe is famous for its beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets. The largest elephant population (+-30 000) in Africa lives in the region and we may have the opportunity to watch herds of elephant drinking at the river. In November 1855, David Livingstone, with his 114 porters, left the Linyanti / Chobe for the Great Falls east of Sesheke ; the falls of Mosi-oa-Tunya "The smoke that thunders".

DAY 9: VICTORIA FALLS / LIVINGSTONE
We travel to Victoria Falls / Livingstone - without doubt one of the greatest and most unforgettable spectacles, where the waters tumble down in continuous thunder. "Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight" - written in David Livingstones diary. (Hotel accommodation with breakfast)

DAY 10: VICTORIA FALLS / LIVINGSTONE
After breakfast we travel to the airport where the safari comes to an end.
