Botswana mobile safaris
Your Bush Home
What’s to eat?
This is always the best part of our family safaris. Our staff love to interact with children, and invite them into our camp kitchen to help make the daily fresh bread and bread rolls. They even get to make their own ‘Bush Pizza’: the staff enjoy showing how our ‘bush oven’ works, always the highlight of a camp kitchen visit. We ask for dietary preferences for a family safari, and try and prepare our menu as close to the kiddies’ favourites as possible. And of course there are always special treats in our camp chef’s pantry.
Here again the staff are involved a lot. We are always happy to entertain the children while moms and dads relax during their afternoon siesta. The camp staff and guide gladly take the children for little strolls, in and around the camp, searching for tracks, insects and flowers. It is a camp favourite every morning to see who can spot what walked through the camp the night before.
Some of our itineraries also offer rides in Botswana’s traditional Mokoro canoes, always a special highlight for the little ones, as it is a break from the game viewing vehicle and a truly unique experience with the chance of seeing, up-close, water lilies and the tiny, colourful reed frog.
On every family safari, Angie prepares a little activity bag for each child, which will keep them busy trying to identify all sorts of animals, insects, reptiles and birds. At the end of their journey, they get to keep this to take home with them as a permanent reminder of their bush experience.
