Families with children! Experience a safari in your own exclusive and private camp! Kids of all ages learn bush survival skills and about tracking animals on their own custom-tailored safaris. This is an unforgettable experience for the entire family in Ker & Downey's famous Botswana Camps!
Young Explorers is a specially-designed safari offering families the opportunity to discover the wonders of the African wilderness together. Under the surface, however, you will discover that the Young Explorers program is much more than a safari experience.
One of the special attractions here is unmatched exclusivity. Each family has the use of a private six-bedded camp, two professional guides, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper, and mokoro guides. You are there to explore the bush at your leisure, while never losing sight of the fact that being in the wilderness is also about having fun. The Young Explorers in the Delta is based at Footsteps Camp, an intimate six-bedded camp in the Shinde private concession. Each family books out exclusive use of the camp, thereby overriding the normal minimum age requirement.
Your children will never forget this experience in the bush and along the Delta. The emphasis is on conservation, respect for the earth, and learning some genuine bush survival skills along the way. Personal guides inspire even the youngest guests, explaining how animals can be tracked using a bit of experience and some keen detective work. They will embark on their own safari experiences and will witness incredible scenes of nature in all her wonder.
Best of all, you can look into the eyes of your child as they tell their tall tales of adventure at night around the boma and know you’ve given them a marvelous gift. You have bestowed upon them the love of nature and of all things wild, and a new-found respect for the earth and all her treasures.
