Created by a river which flows into the desert, Botswana's Okavango is the world's largest inland delta, attracting huge concentrations of wildlife. Explore it's waterways via a mokoro - a dug out canoe used to navigate through the waterways of this premier wilderness area. Be enthralled by elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion, leopard and cheetah or use your binoculars to spot some of the 450 different species of birds on show in the delta.

You'll also have the opportunity to explore Namibia's Caprivi Strip, a lush green heartland characterised by three perennial rivers. The strip is home to huge herds of buffalo, elephant and a wide range of predators, including lion, leopard and hyena.

A Botswana and Namibia family safari is the ideal way to create everlasting memories.
