Enjoy an epic and unique Botswana family adventure, created especially for you
Famous for its diverse landscapes, lush wildlife and energetic experiences across the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert, Botswana is the perfect destination for a luxury family safari holiday.
Experts in planning tailored experiences for families travelling to Botswana, Jacada’s Travel Designers consider everything from luxury accommodation to transport, and provide a detailed itinerary including family-friendly activities with local guides.
In a truly versatile Botswana family safari, your family can explore the landscapes and encounter the local wildlife by air, boat or even on foot, as well as the experiences tied up in the luxury and authentic family-friendly accommodation; including private riverside villas, tented camps, and stellar lodges with kids clubs and special activities.
Although Botswana has become an exclusive and popular family-friendly destination in recent years, it may be more suited to older families, as the choices for young families here are quite limited given the remote locations, age restrictions at the accommodation, and the level of travelling involved with many of its destinations. Nevertheless, we have a great portfolio of options for families travelling with younger children, so speak to our expert Travel Designer for more information.

Jacada planned for our adult family a trip of a lifetime to Africa! From stepping off our flight to waving goodbye after security they assisted us in every way. The Lodges, Hotels and Camps the Jacada representative Jody helped us select were over the top, beyond our expectations. We started and ended in SA with the bulk of our trip…
Jacada planned the most memorable trip our family has taken. In Botswana, the camps were each unique and special. They planned a variety of terrains so we could have different experiences with each stop. The service, hospitality, and food was outstanding. The guides were beyond amazing at finding animals.
