Botswana family safaris make for an unforgettable holiday for a family especially for children as a child’s innate love of nature and animals comes to the fore and opens their eyes and minds to a very different world that must seem magical to them.
These holidays can be a magnificent way for children to learn about nature and interact with different cultures. The whole family together on a mission to explore the landscape and find wildlife. These kinds of experience are magnificent on their own. However, shared with people you care about, these experiences become important points of connection, that will have value for decades and become a family memory.
Of course where you decide to visit in Botswana is closely dependent on the ages of your family members. This age consideration is one not to be taken lightly. Yes, really young children can go on safari but speaking frankly, taking children younger than 6 seems a little bit like a waste of what should be a life changing event for the whole family.
Happy children = happy everyone else and it is very difficult for little ones to sit still enough and quiet enough whilst out on safari. If you do want to go then certainly your main consideration should go to non-malarial safari areas, such as Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana.
Botswana family safaris are simply amazing for children above 6 yrs old. Safari Camps that take children of all ages do so because they have the staff that are able to translate everything so effortlessly and love giving them those first Botswana experiences. Some excel at it. Botswana really does create some of the very best family safari holiday experiences and we would very much recommend this country as a first look.
So much of travel to Botswana and the rest of Africa and the type of experiences that individuals want or need, is highly subjective to each individual person and family. For that reason, we do strongly recommend that at this point you get in touch for a “getting to know you” conversation with one of our team. We are absolute in our belief that this is the only way to achieve a truly Tailormade Africa family safari experience….. for your family.Enquire Now
