5 Day Classic Okavango Delta Family Safari Tour

Prepare to enter the Okavango Delta in Botswana—one of the world’s most unique wilderness areas. Follow the hippo trails in dugout mokoros (traditional dugout canoes) and join your guide on nature walks to discover the islands. You'll head up to Chobe National Park, where you'll watch the African sunset from the comfort of your river cruise, and experience a close encounter with hippo and elephants. Your tour ends in Zimbabwe and the spectacular Victoria Falls, where you can take part in several available adrenaline activities.

Route & Itinerary

5 Days / 4 Nights

Day 1: Johannesburg - Maun - Okavango

Family mokoro canoe excursion through the Okavango Delta channel. Arriving in Maun from Johannesburg you will be transferred to your child-friendly bush camp in the Okavango Delta in a light aircraft, viewing the amazing patterns of this wetland wonderland from the air. You will arrive in time for lunch before settling in with your family in anticipation of your safari together. You will be in the heart of the Delta meaning that the activities are water-based and at night, you can lie awake and listen to the sounds of the nocturnal creatures.


Day 2: Okavango

Zebra sighting during an Okavango Delta game drive in Botswana. You rise early this morning as you look forward to activities in this area that will have you awed at every moment. The guides will point out the fascinating creatures of the Delta and all the intricacies of this complicated wetland. You will return to the bush camp for brunch after which the guides spend time telling wonderful stories to the family. There will be time to relax together and reminisce about the morning activity as you look to what lies ahead on your family safari. Tea is served before the late afternoon activity, and there may even be time for a Sundowner before you head back to the bush camp.


Day 3: Okavango

Child-friendly safari activities in Okavango Delta, Botswana. Today you will head out across the Delta to your next camp situated in the South Western floodplains, certainly one of the most beautiful areas in Africa. The bush camp you will stay at for the next 2 nights has a special deck for children with a swimming pool.


Day 4: Okavango

Spotting a lion during an afternoon game drive. An early start will allow you to experience the sunrise in Okavango. The activities will depend on the season and the level of water. At high water, activities will revolve around boat cruises and dugout canoe rides and at low water, game drives will be the chosen activity. The family can enjoy the morning activities together and then after brunch, choose to relax by the pool, take a nap or play in the children's area. The afternoon activity will also depend on the water levels but there will always be the opportunity for a night drive to experience the dramatic interactions of the nocturnal creatures.


Day 5: Okavango - Maun - Johannesburg

Guide teaching kids about Birds in Botswana. Your Botswana family holiday draws to a close, but there will be time this morning for an activity before flying into Maun to catch the onward flight to Johannesburg.
