Botswana is more suited to the family travelling with teenagers as most lodges do not accept very young children. This suggested itinerary includes the highlights of the Okavango Delta, game viewing in Chobe National Park and concludes with a visit to the Victoria Falls.
3 days Okavango Delta, Botswana
Connect on arrival in Maun Botswana with a charter flight into the Okavango Delta. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Okavango Delta is a maze of lagoons, meandering channels and islands teeming with game which can be explored by mokoro (water levels permitting), on foot or on a game drive.
3 days Chobe National Park, Botswana
A charter flight connection to Kasane in the north of Botswana with an onward road transfer to Chobe National Park, an essential destination when on safari in Botswana. It is not uncommon to see between 500 and 5000 elephant on the Chobe floodplains at any one time. Game drives in open safari vehicles and game cruises on the Chobe river offer unrivalled close up views of the wildlife.
3 days Livingstone, Zambia
Situated at just over 100 kms from Kasane, Livingstone in Zambia is within easy reach and a fitting conclusion to an adventure packed itinerary. Sightseeing recommendations include a visit to the Victoria Falls on both the Zambia and Zimbabwe side and a sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi river. Teenagers can work off excess energy with optional adventure activities such as bungee jumping, white water rafting, and canoeing.
Depart from Livingstone, Zambia or, perhaps, extend your stay to beautiful Cape Town in South Africa.
