Luxurious, bespoke, private and family-friendly Botswana safaris

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.
