What we recommended - and why
As a family of six you are in the perfect position to do an amazing private mobile safari entirely tailored to your needs.
The Okavango is deeply beautiful and to be able to get right in to its green, watery heart is a real treat. By taking a "wet-mobile" where you move, in expeditionary fashion through the swamp and on to an island for three nights of Robinson-Crusoe-esque camping. Everything that you need is here - walk in tents with proper beds and an en-suite chemical loo and bucket shower - but not a whole lot more. And that is undoubtebly part of the atrraction - everthing has been brought with you, including camp-fire wood. The food is good and hearty and drinks cold but there are no butlers and little bling.
Apart from exploring by boat where the elephant particularly can be up-close-and-personal there is also the opportunity to explore some of the larger islands on foot, fish for your supper and wallow in the sublimely clear water (on a sand bank devoid of croc).
After the wet it is time for the dry - heading in to Moremi Game Reserve by open landcruiser and camping on a pan in near desert savannah , the contrast could hardly be greater. The game in Moremi is legendary, notably for predators - wild dog, cheetah, lion and leopard - but they need fed so there there is plenty of prey too. With plenty of big animals - hippo, giraffe, elephant, buffalo and ostrich to keep a younger audience entertained.
