BOTSWANA - children activities
Sanctuary Baines' and Stanley's Camp
Our friendly guides will be able to offer special children's activities. These include teaching them the art of poling a mokoro, a local dug-out canoe commonly used in the Delta. It is propelled through the shallow waters of the delta by standing in the stern and pushing with a pole, in the same manner as punting. Find water and identify edible plants in the bush. Learn how to make rope out of natural materials.
Sanctuary Chief's Camp
The camp is able to offer children activities like a predator safari game drive looking for lions, leopard, wild dogs and hyenas in the area while teaching you more about these magnificent animals or walking through the camps pathways looking and identifying tracks from animals that passed through camp the night before. Each night just before sunset the pathways are swept creating a new canvas. The lodge also has its own dedicated kid’s area, designed with children aged six upwards in mind. The area includes a fancy dress corner and a nature table, where guides are on hand to help young guests identify wildlife by their droppings. There’s even an entertainment zone for kids aged 11+ complete with PlayStation and table football. So there’s no chance that your little animals will get bored once the excitement of the morning’s predator safari game drive is over.
Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero
Our friendly guides will teach and show children the importance of nature through fun and educational activities and shortened game drives. They will be able to get in touch with mother nature while out on a guided walking safari within the grounds of the lodge to collect pods, leaves and seeds and learn about tree identification. Our safari hunt with hidden clues is always a favourite and we will also show them how to play croquet on lush green lawn in front of the lodge. After a long day of fun they will be able to make their own pizza with the Chef.
