Travelling as a family is probably one of the most treasured memories you can leave your children… and Botswana offers the ideal setting for it. Sharing all the natural wonders this country has to offer and the excitement of being on safari would allow you to experience an amazing family trip. Get your family ready for the adventure!
The majority of lodges within Botswana do allow children; however age limits are applicable, may vary from lodge to lodge. In addition to this, there might be some age restrictions in place when partaking in certain activities on offer. Safety comes first when travelling with children!
Discounted rates are usually offered to children when sharing with adults or even with a second child; it will all depend on the lodge and its policy. Because most families travel during the Northern hemisphere summer season, due to school holidays,we highly advise to start planning well in advance as the availability for family rooms is limited. For those having more flexibility, the green season (November – April) is a popular time of year for lodges to offer child friendly months, child rates and packages for short and longer itineraries.
When booking your family safari, our team will advise you on the best possible option and conditions to make this safari a memorable one!
Because each family is special, some of you would consider looking for something a little different and a more exclusive holiday experience, there are many operators which have guides and staff specialised in being on safari and hosting children. They will go out of their way to simplify things and to make sure the kids are entertained safely while allowing them to feel like real explorers! Children will learn about the flora, the intriguing wildlife, as well as the importance of conservation. We want the future generations to feel the same love and respect for nature as we do.
