5 Reasons To Choose Chobe Safari Lodge For a Family-Friendly Festive Season

Our lodge hospitality team will make your family safari in Botswana unforgettable! Here’s why you should bring the kids to Chobe Safari Lodge for a Christmas in Kasane everyone will adore.


1. The Chobe Kids Cub Club

Chobe Safari Lodge operates a Kids Cub Club between 10h00 – 16h00 daily for all in-house residents. This holiday club is designed to keep your children as entertained as you are on safari.

Our safari club guide and coordinator will engage children with environmentally-based activities within the boundaries of Lodge, including guided trail meanders to safely meet our friendly animal residents, such as the Chobe bushbuck. Children will receive a bush bag with an educational booklet and other goodies for children 12 years and younger. They will be encouraged to ask questions about their natural surroundings and will learn about skulls and other animal parts plus make a take-home wildlife track mould. After a fun short test each will each receive a Junior Ranger certificate.

Want to prepare in advance? Perhaps bring along some items for the kids to make your own pair of binoculars? Check our Wild Child Safari-Inspired Schooling ideas.

How to travel with children in the Chobe region

The green season – between November and March – is a very rewarding time of year to travel to northern Botswana. Lots of the plains game animals give birth at this time of year ensuring there will be plenty of ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaaaahhs’ during the game drives and boating activities.

There is also a variety of colourful birdlife as the migrants return to Africa for summer. Bird watching is the perfect opportunity to teach your children how to take it slow while on safari and to appreciate the smaller species of the African wild.
