Botswana for Teens

Waiting until your child is a teenager to take them on safari is well worth it, and Botswana is the perfect destination for a memorable first safari. It checks all the boxes on a safari bucket list. This region has some of the best game viewing in all of Africa, and many comfortable lodges that cater to families.

Kids over 12 are the ideal age to experience all of the excitement that a Botswana safari has to offer. Once your children reach this age, restrictions start to fall away. There are many more options for game drives, where your family will see cheetah, black-maned lion, elephants and antelope. And once they turn sweet sixteen, they are able to go on guided walking safaris, to get an unforgettable, up close and personal view of spectacular big game.

In Botswana, the possibilities are endless for teens who love the outdoors. There is horseback riding, quad biking, and even befriending meerkats in the Makgadikgadi Pans. Or head over to the Okavango Delta for fishing, game drives, boat safaris and walking with elephants. And to get a completely special perspective of the Delta, you can choose to go on an exhilarating helicopter ride.

Turn your teenager’s safari in Botswana into an educational experience, through meeting the San Bushman. Join them on a fascinating walk through their ancestral country, and as the sun sets over the Makgadikgadi, the bushman will perform a mythical and mesmerizing Spirit Dance around the crackling fire. A truly moving and culturally enriching experience for every family to be part of.

If you want to introduce your teen to the excitement of a classic safari, look no further, Botswana is the place for you. From exceptional viewing of wildlife to relaxing cruises down the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, every teen is sure to create memories to last a lifetime in Botswana.
