For families, there’s no topping the adventure of an African wildlife safari, and in Africa, it’s hard to top Botswana! Big game is abundant, and we get amazingly close from our private tented camps, deep within the bush and far from tourist crowds. In a world of vanishing natural treasures, the chance for a family to experience the wonders of Africa together is an unsurpassed gift. Watch a cheetah sprint across the savanna, or study the green glow of a hyena’s eyes at night—and 'wild life' takes on a whole new meaning! Our itinerary is designed to maximize diversity: from the Chobe River’s elephant-filled channels to the thunder of Victoria Falls, from the dry, open plains of Linyanti with its herds and predators to the marshes of the Okavango Delta, your Botswana family safari unveils new sensory thrills day by day.
Why Choose Nat Hab for Your Family Botswana Safari?
Every family safari opportunity in Botswana is not the same. It’s important to compare crucial features like itineraries, vehicles and window seats, accommodation style and location, group size, etc., so you can be sure that the safari of your family’s dreams is exactly that! When you see how we stack up, we can’t imagine you’d choose any other family safari opportunity.
- A Small, Personalized Family Safari – Maximum 8 Guests!
Most companies’ family safaris are large-group events. Our Family Botswana safari is limited to just 8 guests – the perfect size for a multi-generational family, or an opportunity to share a family experience with another family group, for added fun and companionship.
- Private Reserves Offer Special Activities and Secluded Accommodations
Rather than staying in more heavily visited national parks, we concentrate on remote, uncrowded private reserves in Linyanti and Moremi. Here, in additional to traditional wildlife drives, we have the chance to get out of the truck (always important with kids!) and enjoy safely guided bush walks in the company of our Expedition Leader. In addition, we also take exciting night drives in search of nocturnal creatures — both of these are activities that are not permitted in the national parks. And we stay in intimate, isolated camps that immerse us in nature amidst profuse wildlife, rather than other tourists.
- Chartered Flights Maximize Your Comfort and Time
Rather than subject your family to long, rough overland drives, we opt for chartered light aircraft transfers between camps and regions. This means you have more time to spend on safari, and making great memories together – plus you’ll have some pretty amazing aerial views of Botswana’s varied landscapes and their wild inhabitants.
- The World's Finest Safari Guides
Natural Habitat Adventures is known worldwide for employing the finest naturalists on the planet! Our Family Botswana Safari includes your own private Expedition Leader, rather than less-qualified local camp guides. NHA Safari Expedition Leaders are the most highly trained guides in Africa, renowned for providing exceptional service. And the guides chosen to lead our family safaris have a special rapport with kids and a knack for discerning and balancing the needs and interests of several generations traveling together. With your family from the moment you arrive until you depart, our Expedition Leaders average 15 years' guiding experience in Africa. Their training is further enhanced by the resources of WWF’s premier scientists. See Expedition Leader bios with traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
