Family Tours of Botswana

It's a wonderful world and there's no better way to experience its magic than by taking your family on an family adventure holiday. Travelling with children is incredibly rewarding as they see, hear and are in awe of the small things that us adults can sometimes take for granted. With 30 years history of running adventure travel holidays, coupled with our experience of travelling with our families, we know exactly what it takes to make a family adventure. Each of our family adventures has been designed to ensure that both parents and children get the most out of their holiday. Whether you are a regular KE client looking to share your pioneering spirit with the children, or you are dipping your toes in the waters of adventure travel for the first time, you should find your perfect holiday amongst our family adventures. Exotic cultures, breath-taking natural environments and amazing historical treasures have never been more accessible for the whole family to enjoy.

Okavango and Botswana Safari - Family Adventure

13 days       from  £1995 excl. flights*

Whether you're a seasoned safari enthusiast or a first timer, this family safari adventure holiday encompasses some of the most unique and diverse game reserves and national parks Africa has to offer. Arriving in Maun we head straight to the wetland of the Okavango Delta and leave behind our vehicles to be gently poled along the water systems of the Okavango Delta in a traditional Mokoro (a dug-out canoe), where we can get up close and personal with the flora and fauna before returning to our wilderness camp for the tradition of a sundowner. Moving on from the Delta we head to the Moremi Game Reserve, which was first established by the Batawana people of Ngamiland. With an abundance of wildlife you will spend each day searching for the big five under the expert eye of your guide. Heading for Savuti and Chobe National Park, we hope to see the largest yet sensitive of all African animals, the elephant. Famed for its huge elephant population, Chobe is wonderful environment to view these amazing creatures. For our final stop, we trade wildlife for wild water and cross into Zambia, finishing at the ‘Smoke That Thunders', Victoria Falls to complete our African adventure. And what an adventure for the children it will be! This is one of our Explore International holidays. Participants on these trips can book through KE or through one of our international partners. This helps us to gather together sufficient numbers of like-minded adventurers to get your holiday up and running quickly. Led by an English-speaking guide, the cosmopolitan nature of these groups can be an important part of the experience!
