Botswana with Kids
There are direct flights from London to Johannesburg all year round and flight time form Johannesburg to the Botswana capital Gaberone is only one hour. Botswana is internationally recognised as one of the safest countries for family safaris.
With an outstanding visitor infrastructure but no mass tourism Botswana is best for older kids and an unforgettable adventure. Here are our top things to do with kids in Botswana:
Chief's Island, Moremi Game Reserve
This is the largest island on the Okavango Delta and has Botswana’s highest concentration of spectacular wildlife – it’s also home to Africa’s most exclusive safari lodges and camps.
Victoria Falls, Kasane
Surprisingly, one of the easiest and most affordable ways to see Africa’s legendary falls is on a day trip to Zimbabwe from Kasane in Chobe National Park.
Khama Rhino Sanctuary, Serowe
