When travelling with children specialist family safaris will allow you to get the most out of your safari. These safaris pair specialist guides with custom facilities within the delta.
There is an increasing emphasis on family safaris to the Okavango Delta with the delta providing an ideal environment for children to learn about nature and conservation.
For those with young children, booking a safari to the delta can be frustrating with children excluded from activities such as walking safaris and mokoro excursions. The specialist family safari is a solution to this pairing excellent camps with dedicated guides.
These specialist safaris seek to get the most out of the delta for children with bespoke activities and a flexible approach to safari planning. Accommodation has been specifically pointed to allow both parents and children the space to safely explore this unique environment with up to three children accommodated in Desert & Delta Safaris newly built family units at Camp Okavango and Camp Moremi.
Guides have been specially selected for their child focused outlook with enthusiasm and flexibility key attributes. These guides are able to bring the delta to life ensuring a memorable safari experience.
Whilst most family safaris make use family rooms at existing camps, Ker & Downey Botswana’s innovative and highly regarded Young Explorers programme offers a bespoke family safari with sole use of their Footsteps Camp in the Shinde Concession.
The Young Explorers safari is a specially designed safari which offers families the opportunity to discover the wonders of the African wilderness – together. One of the special attractions of this safari is its exclusivity. Each family has the use of a private six-bedded camp, a professional guide, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper and dedicated Mokoro guides. It literally allows guests to explore the bush at their leisure, while never losing sight of the fact that being in the wilderness is also about having fun!
