Itinerary overview – Okavango Delta, Linyanti Wetlands and Victoria Falls
You will spend 9 nights and 10 days getting to know some of the most beautiful natural wonders of Botswana and witness its unrivalled game viewing.
The adventure will begin at Kanana Camp, a luxurious tented camp nestled on its own island in the Southwestern region of the delta.
The camp’s location in the Kanana private concession, adjacent to the lush Moremi Game Reserve, offers an unparalleled variety of habitats for game. Explore the nearby mopane woodlands, the preferred hideout for hunting leopards, on night time game drives or spot the African wild dogs from your mokoro excursion.
In the wetter summer months, you could visit the nearby heronry where many migratory birds come to nest, including yellow-billed, open-billed and marabou storks, reed cormorants, pink-backed pelicans, grey herons and sacred ibis.
Your next stop will be the Selinda Explorers Camp, an intimate camp specially chosen for its prime game viewing opportunities. Your trip will likely include the unique experience of canoeing along the nearby Selinda Spillway, and kids can partake in the Young Explorers Programme – learning about animal calls, tracking wildlife and becoming a Young Explorer and Conservation Ambassador.
Bring your adventure to a close with the family-friendly Batonka lodge, where the green gardens and large swimming pools make it a perfect spot to unwind from action-packed days exploring the park.
Botswana and Victoria Falls family safari – Pricing and considerations
The Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls can be explored all year round as they offer a range of activities as the seasons change. However, the dry season from May to October is the best time for wildlife viewing, and the end of the rains in April and May meant that Victoria Falls is at its most powerful.
Our guide price for this itinerary is from £4,750 / $5,460 per person (based on 2 adults and 2 children (under 12) sharing a family room.
All our luxury family safari holidays are designed on an individual basis, so this will vary depending on time of year, activities, transport methods and choice of accommodation. The best way to start planning is to contact us.
Day 1 - 3
Following your international flight, you will be taken to your island home at Kanana Camp. Surrounded by a necklace of islands and waterways, the huge variety of game and birds will immediately be apparent.
On arrival you will be met and introduced to your guide who will fill you in on what to expect during your stay here.
And depending on the season, a visit to the nearby heronry can be organised to witness the arrival of Africa’s famous migratory birds.
Day 3 - 6
Today you will make your way to Selinda Explorers Camp, a camp housing only ten guests in a prime game spot in the Linyanti.
Your stay here will be spent on day and night game drives, guided walks, and fishing. The whole family can enjoy the unique experience of canoeing along the nearby Selinda Spillway, and kids can partake in the Young Explorers Programme – learning about animal calls, tracking wildlife and becoming a Young Explorer and Conservation Ambassador.
After a day of activities, sit back around the traditional fire pit, feet in the sand, sharing stories of your day’s adventures.
Day 6 - 9
Finish your family adventure with a bang, exploring the famous Victoria Falls National Park.
You will stay for three nights at the understated and family-friendly Batonka Guest Lodge. Roam Batonka’s rolling gardens, take a quick dip in the pool or cool down with a cold drink on the main lodge’s breezy verandah.
Once refreshed, you can explore the huge variety of activities on offer in Vic Falls. If you’re feeling adventurous you can take a half-day canoeing safari on the Zambezi River or traverse the historic Victoria Falls bridge – 128 metres above the crashing water below.
If you’re all about the wildlife, the surrounding national parks mean that there is almost too much to choose from. Walk with white rhinos in Mosi O Tunya National Park in nearby Livingstone, go on a horse riding safari or spot crocodiles and bathing elephants from Siduli Hide. Families wanting to taste the classic safari experience can also opt for a more conventional game drive in the morning or afternoon.Accommodation suggestion
