Trip Itinerary

DAY #1 - Johannesburg, South Africa - Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa
Your Botswana family safari begins with a little relaxation in the tasteful elegance of The Saxon in Johannesburg. After a night of rest, you will continue your journey into Botswana.
DAY #2 - Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana - Okuti
Arrive at the Moremi Game Reserve, one of the finest game reserves in the world, within the Okavango Delta. Spend two days at intimate and luxurious Okuti, the perfect base for an African family safari.
DAY #3 - Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana - Okuti
Moremi is a park rich in wildlife and game viewing is consistent year round, an ideal destination for the first-time visitor to Botswana. Embark on game drives to visit the Moremi Game Reserve and elephant populations that reside here, and explore the delta waterways by motorboat. From open lagoons to winding channels, it is a birders paradise, especially for herons and storks in the breeding season.
DAY #4 - Okavango Delta, Botswana - Young Explorers
Next, head off to Young Explorers, a Botswana family safari that operates out of Footsteps Across the Delta. This is a magically unique way to experience the African wilderness in the unmatched exclusivity of the Shinde private concession. This six-bedded camp is ideal for families and offers activities and safari experiences specially designed to inspire even the youngest guests.
DAY #5 - Okavango Delta, Botswana - Young Explorers
Each family has the exclusive use of a private six-bedded camp, two professional guides, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper, and mokoro guides. You are there to explore the bush at your leisure, while never losing sight of the fact that being in the wilderness is also about having fun.
DAY #6 - Okavango Delta, Botswana - Young Explorers
The emphasis is on conservation, respect for the earth, and learning some genuine bush survival skills along the way. Personal guides inspire even the youngest guests, explaining how animals can be tracked using a bit of experience and some keen detective work. They will embark on their own safari experiences and will witness incredible scenes of nature in all her wonder.
DAY #7 - Okavango Delta, Botswana Kanana
After three days at Footsteps exploring the labyrinth of lagoons, lakes, and hidden channels, transfer within the Okavango Delta to the tranquility of Kanana Camp overlooking the floodplains. Eight luxury-style tents, accommodating up to 16 guests, with the common facilities of the camp are built on stilts to ensure a good view of the floodplains for all visitors.
DAY #8 - Okavango Delta, Botswana Kanana
This area is an excellent walking safari destination. While game viewing in 4×4 vehicles is very popular, don’t miss experiencing this region by viewing game on foot or by gliding silently through the delta by Mokoro. A wide variety of animals frequent the life-giving force of the Delta, including elephant, impala, lechwe, hippo, crocodile, and lion. Kanana Camp is one of the few lucky camps in the Okavango Delta to have an exclusive heronry—accessible depending upon seasonality—where many migratory water birds come to hatch their young.
DAY #9 - Victoria Falls, Zambia - The River Club
Conclude your African family safari in Zambia at The River Club, a secluded luxury lodge next to the Zambezi River with an outstanding view of one of Zambia’s coveted regions. This farmhouse-turned-hotel is ideally located to experience the grand Victoria Falls and the Zambezi.
DAY #10 - Victoria Falls, Zambia - The River Club
This is the perfect gateway to all-ages activities around the falls. Embark on Zambezi sunset cruises, Victoria Falls canopy tours, Zambezi rafting, scenic helicopter flights, and day trips to Chobe.
DAY #11 - Victoria Falls, Zambia
Bid Africa farewell today.

The tour was great and Ker and Downey easy to work with. We felt taken care of from start to finish.

The entire trip, once it happened (thanks to several reschedules) was very organized and thought through. When the original Galapagos operator cancelled late in the game, Ker & Downey quickly found us an alternative.
