Botswana Family Safari


Custom | 10 Days | Easy Safari
  • A custom-designed safari featuring private mobile luxury camps
  • Crisscross the Okavango Delta by plane, boat, foot, and four-by-four 
  • Spot hippos, elephants, lions, birds, and other fantastic wildlife
  • Learn from the Zu/’hoasi about their culture in the Makgadikgadi Pans
  • Travel with superlative, fun-loving safari guides

Gliding through the meandering waterways of the Okavango Delta, you experience another world—one with pairs of drinking elephants, pods of periscoping hippos, and saddle-billed storks searching for lunch in the shallows. By foot, four-by-four, and boat, you’ll explore inviting isles, tranquil lagoons, lush marshes, and grassy plains, discovering incredible wildlife and the rhythms of the bush. You’ll venture into remote corners of the delta on a rare mobile safari, staying in deluxe camps with stellar guides that are yours exclusively. There’s also time to get to know Zu/’hoasi people in the shimmering Makgadikgadi Pans.
