The Ultimate Family African Safari
There are about a half dozen regions of Botswana that offer uniquely different safari experiences. The Okavango Delta is easily the most popular, thanks to an abundant year-round water supply. The Delta attracts wildlife like a giant magnet. During the dry season (May–October), giant herds of elephant, antelope, buffalo, hippos, and zebra migrate to these permanent watering holes, making for exceptionally rich game viewing. For a fun change of pace from the traditional four-wheel game drives, you can choose to explore the Delta’s lily-covered channels in an old-style dugout canoe called a mokoro.
