Itinerary

9-Day Luxury Safari with Kids (1+)

With accommodation welcoming children aged 1+ this is the perfect luxury safari with kids for families to experience amazing wildlife & scenery together.

Opening with the thundering spectacle of Victoria Falls, this luxury tour puts you at the heart of the safari experience. The wildlife viewing starts straight away: your Victoria Falls accommodation lies in the Zambezi National Park with air-conditioned family suites overlooking the river itself, complete with snorting hippos. Then you’ll cross into Botswana, exploring three distinct regions by 4X4, boat, canoe and on foot to give you a fantastic mix of wildlife and landscapes. Flying between safari camps saves hours of travel on the road and the accommodation is all family-friendly with a range of extra activities and amenities for young ones – from playgrounds and pools to shopping and Wi-Fi.

Days 1 - 2: The Smoke that Thunders

Arrive at Victoria Falls International Airport & transfer by road to Victoria Falls River Lodge for 2 nights on a bed & breakfast basis.

The local name for Victoria Falls is Mosi oa Tunya – the Smoke that Thunders – and a tour of the falls is one that will leave lasting memories – as will your first two nights. Victoria Falls River Lodge is the only accommodation set inside the Zambezi National Park and offers riverside views from large, air-conditioned family suites that sleep up to five. There are birds and monkeys in the trees and hippo and elephants in the river: it’s the ideal way to start the safari, especially as Victoria Falls has one of the widest ranges of adventure and safari activities in Africa. Depending on the age of your children, you can choose to go white-water rafting, bungee jumping or zip lining, or take things a little easier with a sunset Zambezi cruise and perhaps a jumbo-sized encounter with tame elephants. There’s also fishing, birding and game drives: ask us about what options are available and we’ll be happy to arrange them

Days 3 – 4: To the Chobe River

Transfer by road from Victoria Falls to the Botswana border & drive to Chobe Game Lodge in the Chobe National Park. Check in for 2 nights on a full-board basis.

It’s a road transfer and a border crossing after breakfast but it’s usually only a couple of hours and then you are sitting down with a cold drink overlooking the famed Chobe River. Your accommodation is Chobe Game Lodge, a hotel-type lodge with air-conditioned rooms and a host of amenities for children aged 1+. Its location within the park and on the river is matchless and you’ll be first out in the morning for game drives and last back in the afternoon from your boat cruise. The Chobe River is big game country and home to enormous numbers of elephants and other animals in the dry season; it’s also great for predators like lions and crocodiles, and the bird watching is rated as the best in Botswana.

Days 5 – 6: Moremi Magic at Machaba

Transfer by road to Kasane Airport for a shared charter flight to the Moremi Game Reserve & Machaba Camp for 2 nights on a full-board basis.

A short flight by light plane whisks you to the edge of the Okavango Delta and a tented camp tucked away in a private conservation area. This is where the waters of the Okavango meet the forests and floodplains of Moremi and the result is spectacular wildlife; elephants, buffalo, big cats, giraffe and antelope plus rarities such as African wild dog. You’ll explore by 4X4 and local canoe – the mokoro – in flood season, and because Machaba Camp lies in a private reserve, your guide can also conduct walking safaris and spot-lit night drives, adding greatly to the safari experience. Back at camp you have a large double family suite with electric lighting and private bathroom, and the camp has a swimming pool. There’s also a spa therapist in case parents feel like spoiling themselves too.

Days 7 – 8: Okavango Floodplains

Fly by shared charter to the Okavango Delta where you check in at Gomoti Plains Camp for 2 nights on a full-board basis.

The scenery changes as you fly out of Moremi: bigger rivers and more expansive floodplains come into view as you journey deeper into the Okavango Delta. Your next camp is Gomoti Plains, a sister camp to Machaba and one set in a land of big horizons where the water level usually determines whether game viewing takes place by vehicle or boat. Gomoti lies in a private concession as well, so you have the extra safari activities – walking and night drives – to look forward to and its wide open spaces favour not only large herds of buffalo and antelope but also their predators – lions, cheetah and wild dog. Back at camp you have dinners under starlight and stories around the fire – it’s the perfect way to end the day with your family.

Day 9: The Journey Ends

After breakfast at Gomoti Camp you are transferred timeously to Maun Airport & your onward connections.

It’s a short flight across the eastern delta to Maun Airport, lying at the edge of the Okavango Delta and the transport hub for the region. The Luxury Safari with Children (1+) comes to an end with your arrival at the airport and your onward travel arrangements.

Reviews

Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Ann and Mario (Canada)
Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Very helpful good suggestions for holiday ideas always available for questions good organising

Excellent service and they supplied good suggestions for our holiday they also organised all internal flights and arranged check in for us so we had no worries while on holiday. We have had a most memorable holiday staying at wonderful places thanks to Sabrina and Safari Online. Would recommend Safari Online to organise your holiday.

Lorraine (UK)
An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Gwen (AU)
Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Neena
Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Roger (UK)
Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!
