The safari experience varies hugely depending on the location you choose, one of a number of reasons why a Botswana safari is often best experienced over multiple different locations. Combining the Okavango with the Kalahari or Makgadikgadi Salt Pans offers incredible variety, it’s always best to speak to your experienced consultant at True Travel to guide you in what would be the best location for your family. An important consideration is the age of your children as some locations and lodges have a minimum age limit on game drives, whereas in other locations the activities can be particularly tailored to families in a way not seen in neighbouring countries.
Botswana’s position in the heart of southern Africa also makes it well placed to combine with other countries in the region. Direct flights from Cape Town to Maun are very popular as are the flights down to Johannesburg which provide access out to the coast and the Indian Ocean. Closer to the safari areas, it’s only a short hop across to Zimbabwe or Zambia to access the spectacular Victoria Falls.
