Camp Botswana is an educational, fun and exciting activity camp for children aged 7 – 14 years. Their activities include archery, swimming, paintball, arts and crafts, fun workshops, outdoor cooking and anything else fun we can think of. Their aim is to give children the opportunity to try new activities in a safe environment. School holiday camps are run every school holiday and they are open to everyone.
Camp Botswana is run by Avril and Tjipo who have many years of experience working with children. They also work with teachers and trained mentors who help run the activities.
The camps are fun and they also teach life skills, helping with confidence, resilience and independence. It is the ultimate adventure experience for every school child.
This is often a first for many of our campers. They work very hard to make this experience with nature an enjoyable and memorable one. Campers pair up and there are tent inspections after breakfast.
Camp Botswana Games

They offer boat cruises along the Thamalakane River! The scenery is great with hippo sightings. Makes for a great experience for all campers.
This is a writing workshop hosted by Bonty, an award winning children’s author. The campers develop their writing skills in a fun and interactive way. Bonty uses traditional stories to guide the art of story-telling.
Camp Botswana campers get the chance to learn how to collect firewood, make their own fire and cook. This is done outside without using pots. It’s a very popular activity and they get to eat whatever they cook!
