A Family Safari in Botswana
Arriving to the wonderful Mombo Camp amidst the wildlife-rich Chiefs Island.
If you are looking for a special experience with your family, this wonderful safari in
the wildlife-rich Botswana would be ideal. Pristine. Abundant. Superlative. Botswana offers a carnival of wildlife spectacles. A wilderness of savannahs, deserts, wetlands, and salt pans; from the mighty Kalahari to the Okavango Delta – a tectonic trough fed by the Okavango River and dissected by lazy waterways, lagoons, and islands – Botswana has strong game. A private jet takes you to Maun where you'll connect for a short and incredibly scenic flight over the labyrinths of waterways by King Air before landing at your opulent safari lodge.
What to do in Botswana when you've arrived by private jet
Encounter prolific wildlife on a 4x4 safari accompanied by a legendary guide; soar above galloping game by hot air balloon or private aircraft; explore labyrinthine waterways by mokoro dugout canoes; track herds by helicopter or quad; spend a night camping in luxury among the ancient baobabs and granite boulders of ethereal Kubu Island, or in a custom-built treehouse above a watering hole; travel with the ancient San Bushmen, hunting and gathering, before dancing around the fire under the stars; walk fossil river valleys; focus your lens on a pride of black-maned lions; hear the trumpeting procession of elephants in Chobe National Park by day and enchanting local choirs by night.
Combine the finest luxury private safari lodges with specially set up Hemingway-style luxury camps, both exceptionally serviced. The best time to go is June to October when the waterways are full, the sun is high and the game is rich. But if you don't mind the occasional shower, the land is most verdant from November to April. Botswana also works really well in combination with Victoria Falls and a discovery of Namibia, all conveniently linked by private aircraft.
