Families with children: experience a family-friendly Botswana 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.

Property Details

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 safari program is much more than a safari experience in the Okavango Delta. It’s a chance to create lasting memories with your family.

Unmatched exclusivity undoubtedly sets Young Explorers apart from other safari properties. Each family has the use of a private six-bedded camp with a personal chef, a waiter, and a housekeeper. Additionally, two professional guides and mokoro guides are available to you, allowing you to explore the bush at your leisure. The Young Explorers Okavango Delta is based at Footsteps Camp, an intimate six-bedded camp in the Shinde private concession of Botswana. Each family books out exclusive use of the camp, thereby overriding the normal minimum age requirement.

Why Young Explorers

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 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. Without a doubt, you’ve given them a marvelous gift. You have bestowed upon them the love of nature and of all things wild. Above all, their new-found respect for the earth and all her treasures will stick with them for a lifetime.
