Going on safari with the family is one of the most valued ways to travel. Discovering the many thrills of an African adventure with children and loved ones in tow has the potential to transform the experience into memories that bind you together forever. We work with parents who want to take their children to safe, stimulating safari destinations that will give them an introduction to the wild world. We also work with guests who want to arrange anniversary trips for their parents and make it a family affair. There is no doubt that safari is something we want to enjoy at all stages of life, and as our families grow and change, so we want to be able to find the perfect fit.Enquire Now
Some of the considerations to take into account when arranging a family safari
- Accommodation: Does the safari lodge have family rooms available?
- Activities: Are there activities on offer that cater for children too young to go on a game drive or walk?
- Area: Does the safari area have a high malaria risk or other climate-related issues that could affect your decision to travel with children? Are there long travel distances to cover between destinations?
- Facilities: Is the camp safe for small children, and is there an added child-minding service available?
We believe it is important to work closely with our clients who are travelling with their families to establish what theirs and their children’s interests are so that we can start to piece together an itinerary that caters specifically for their needs. Some of the most successful family safaris combine the excitement of wildlife experiences with stimulating activities and a couple of days spent elsewhere like at the beach or in a city. We know which lodges cater best for younger children, and kids who already have a keen interest in nature, and this knowledge can make all the difference to a family safari experience. Our personal experience of travelling with our own families and children, and our unique relationships with our suppliers means we can advise from a place of real understanding.
