Botswana Custom Travel Adventures

There is no better place to see Africa’s wildlife in its natural habitat than Botswana. We can arrange an amazing African safari that your family will remember for a lifetime. Botswana is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, but its open plains offer an abundance of wildlife that can be found nowhere else on earth.

Young Explorers Family Safaris are especially designed for traveling with kids, offering you and your family a unique opportunity to discover the natural wonders of the African bush. Safari packages include the use of a private six-bed camp, along with two professional guides, a chef, waiter and housekeeper. Botswana’s Okavango Delta is the gateway to wild game-viewing safaris on both land, and with a personal guide in native canoes, known as mokoros.
