Moremi Game Reserve

Your Botswana family safari begins with an overnight in Johannesburg. After a night of rest, you will arrive at the Moremi Game Reserve within the Okavango Delta. Spend two days at intimate and luxurious Okuti and embark on game drives to visit the reserve and elephant populations that reside here. The water-side wonders seem endless, and don’t be surprised if the sparkling Delta dances into your children’s dreams each evening.

Okavango Delta

Next it’s off to Young Explorers, a Botswana family safari that operates out of Footsteps Across the Delta. Together you’ll find a unique way to experience the African wilderness in the unmatched exclusivity of the Shinde private concession. This six-bedded camp is ideal for families and offers activities and safari experiences specially designed to inspire even the youngest guests.

After three days at Footsteps exploring the labyrinth of lagoons, lakes, and hidden channels, transfer within the Okavango Delta to the tranquility of Kanana overlooking the floodplains. While game viewing in 4×4 vehicles is certainly popular, the region around Kanana is best experienced on foot or by gliding silently through the delta on a mokoro.
