At a glance

This luxury family safari adventure – suitable for families with children over 10 – has been especially designed to take in the delights of the verdant Green Season. During this period, brown landscapes turn multifarious shades of green, baby animals are born and national parks and camps are less crowded, making it a perfect time for families to explore. You’ll stay in large luxury safari tents, especially chosen to accommodate family groups, and we will take care of every detail to ensure you enjoy a seamless journey and unforgettable memories.

Begin your trip at Victoria Falls on the Livingstone side in Zambia where you’ll spend three nights at a luxury camp. Family members of all ages will be awestruck by the awesome power of the falls and there will be plenty of opportunities for Zambezi River activities that will be enjoyed by young and older alike.

Next move your brood on to the Chobe National Park in northeastern Botswana for two nights at luxury tented camp. Spend your days on 4×4 game drives to see the huge herds of elephants and buffalo that call the park their home as well as the lions, leopards and wild dogs that prey on them.

The last stop on your familial expedition is the lush and green Okavango Delta, where you’ll spend three wildlife-filled days enjoying both private game drives and unique water safaris.

The Okavango Delta is known as one of the premier wildlife habitats in the world, home to an enormous density and diversity of wildlife. The flooding of the Delta brings water from thousands of miles upstream on the Okavango river, arriving into Botswana in the dry season. Huge herds of animals flock to take advantage of the ready supply of water and nutrients, and their predators follow. You'll have the opportunity to witness this spectacle as you ride through the reeds as the sun goes down in a ‘mokoro’ - a traditional dug-out canoe - or in a speed boat. Your Okavango-born guide and poler will help you to spot tiny frogs, hippo, crocodile, the elusive sitatunga and colourful waterbirds such as Pel's Fishing-Owl, Slaty Egret, Wattled Crane and a host of raptors, other waterbirds and colourful kingfishers.
