The lodge boasts all of the amenities, including childcare! You and your little ones will be delighted with the fantastic bush school/playground where they learn about animal tracks, dung identification, etc. Conclude your family’s first African adventure in Cape Town where activities, fantastic food and wine abound. Your hotel is within walking distance of the aquarium and bustling waterfront.
7 Nights / 8 Days in Zambia/Botswana (age 6+)
Acclimate in Livingstone, Zambia for a few nights to take in dramatic Victoria Falls and the many activities on and around the mighty Zambezi River. Village visits are essential stops for your children. Next, head into the Okavango Delta for a safari in two areas that both contrast and complement each other. The Khwai area is a great introduction to the Okavango region. Banoka Camp is family-friendly with all of the amenities, including a pool. End your adventure by boating to Jacana Camp, which is the only way to access it most months of the year as it occupies its own island in a wetland paradise. Your family will experience wildlife by boat, mokoro (traditional dugout canoe), and 4x4 vehicle. The ultimate Okavango!
