Botswana's Okavango Delta - one of Africa's most pristine locations and wilderness.
Between June-October. The dry season. As Botswana is very seasonal, timing is key.
Young Explorer's is a 4 day programme. Then there's an array of options if not home.
Each family has the use of the Footsteps Camp; a private six-bedded camp equipped with a professional guide, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper and dedicated guides. The camp accommodates guests in three specially designed, twin-bedded, Meru tents complete with sewn-in floors. One of the three tents has an additional bedroom converting it into a family tent that sleeps five. Each tent has its own newly refurbished en-suit bathroom including wash basin, porcelain flush toilet and bush shower, and even a daily laundry service.
From here, guests can explore the bush at their leisure, while never losing sight of the fact that being in the wilderness is also about having fun!
Activities are designed to be both educational and inspiring, and the time spent at the Young Explorers camp is sure to leave a lasting impression and fond memories in the minds of all the family. A selection of activities are planned with the whole family in mind. Parents can enjoy some peace and quite whilst our expertly trained Young Explorers guide entertains the children with a multitude of activities to suite all ages.
The Young Explorers’ emphasis is on learning how to track game – both on foot and in 4×4 safari vehicles. We also teach children how to make small animal traps and how to start a fire from nothing more than two sticks. The children learn how to; recognise different animal spoor; identify a range of birds; try their hand at poling a mokoro; driving a game drive vehicle; fishing; and air rifle practice at tin cans. On completion of the safari children receive a Young Explorers certificate, t-shirt and cap.
