How do I get around in Botswana?
You will reach most of the camps in areas such as Chobe, Okavango Delta, Central Kalahari and the Moremi Reserve by private charter flight. Scheduled light aircraft depart from Maun or Kasane, and many accommodations have private landing strips on location, or just a short game drive away. These flights save a lot of time and give you an incredible perspective on the beautifully diverse landscapes of Botswana. Please note that light aircraft usually have a luggage restriction of 15kg,
Is Botswana good for families?
A Botswana safari can be educational, inspiring and just amazing fun for all the family. Bear in mind that as a truly wild destination, many camps are unfenced and children need to be of an age where they can be trusted not to run around outside alone, or at night. Our recommended age for children on safari is 12, but there are lodges that cater for families under this age. We are happy to advise you on what could be best for your family, as we know every single family is unique.
