Botswana is one of the most exclusive touristic destinations in Africa. But if you are a young family from America, Europe or Asia it is not that easy thing to travel there and start your individual trip through the country. But there is help: specialized tour providers offer Botswana tours for families. You can get there round trips for group of families as well as “private tours” – organized trips for individual families.
A family holiday in Botswana can offer an educational, memorable, and equally thrilling experience for everyone. When traveling for a holiday with children you have to make sure they are constantly entertained and what better way to do this than with a holiday in Botswana.
The primary goal to go for would be to ensure there is as much variety as possible on the trip. A bored child is not a happy one while older children do not need much activity to keep them occupied so long as they are tailored specifically to their enjoyment. Youngsters, however, need a constant change of scenery to keep their minds and their attention engaged.
You can go on a wildlife safari where the main activity will be viewing the wildlife from safari vehicles. There are camps and lodges which require one to pay for a private vehicle if they are in the company of children and they do not allow children below 6 years of age to engage in game activities. For activities such as canoeing or walking in the wild, which are quite unpredictable the children are required to be at least 16 years old.
Children may enjoy a bushwalk in the Kalahari with the San where they will know how to get water in the desert, make a fire, trap small animals, and know what to eat.
You can marvel at the hippos and the huge elephant herds in the Chobe National Park via a boat ride, go on a quad-bike ride across the Makgadikgadi Salt pans, or canoe on the clear Okavango Delta waters. Rest assured your family will never get bored on this trip.
There are mobile safari camps and smaller lodges which are flexible when it comes to accommodating families on holiday particularly when it comes to the children’s dietary requests and meal times. They can also cater well to families on holiday with children.
Your trip to Botswana will be highly engaging and might include activities such as:
One-of-a-kind cultural interactions with the Kalahari desert’s San Bushmen
