Overview

The Young Explorers family safari is a special designed family trip. This 3 night safari offers you the opportunity to discover the wonders of the African bush together as a family. Each family has the use of this private six-bedded camp. With two professional guides as well as a chef, waiter, housekeeper and mokoro guides.

The safari emphasis is on learning how to track game both on foot and in 4 x 4 safari vehicles. Together with how to make small animal traps and how to start a fire from nothing more than two sticks. Your children will learn how to recognize different animal tracks as well as bird identification. They’ll also try their hand at poling a mokoro, driving a game drive vehicle, fishing and shooting an air rifle at tin cans. On completion of the Young Explorer Family safari your children receive a Young Explorers certificate and t-shirt or cap.

Accommodation

You stay at Footsteps Across the Delta Camp on the Shinde Concession. This consists of three insect-proof dome tents, with sewn-in floors and proper beds, a private bucket shower and bush toilet for each tent, a game-viewing platform and a bush kitchen with meals cooked over the camp fire. A family tent is available on request.

This Young Explorers Family safari can be extended by adding a few nights at another camp or two in Botswana. Making it a prefect for a longer FAMILY safari holiday...
Or how about combining it with a Footsteps Walking Safari. Ending the African Safari on a high!

Note: The Young Explorers program does not run between December and February as it is too hot and humid to successfully run active family safaris during this time.

Tour Highlights

  • Lessons in bush craft and some rules regarding animal behaviour and respect for all the inhabitants of the wilderness.
  • Tracking prints left by overnight visitors, as well as identifying some of the multitude of animals, birds and insects that inhabit the forests.
  • Enjoy mokoro (dugout canoe) rides while your guides teach you some of the ways to survive in this vast wetland wilderness.
  • Learn some of the rules and skills required in order to handle a rifle safely.
