Taking the kids on safari can be one of the most rewarding adventures you will have together as a family. We don’t sugarcoat it; there are certainly some factors you need to consider, but we will offer accurate, first hand travel advice, recommending our hand-picked, tried and tested family friendly safari lodges, and exclusive beach resorts, offering inspirational, safe & fun activities for the kids and the whole family. While there are some that take only children aged 16 and over on game drives, many safari lodges & camps that welcome children of any age with open arms, offering babysitting and childcare facilities so that you can enjoy that romantic dinner or spa treatment (after all it’s your holiday too!), and fun, age-appropriate activities for the kids such as junior ranger training, frog hunts, bush walks and family-friendly game drives. We will advise on the best malaria-free game reserves and plan an itinerary that matches your exacting needs and wishes. We will ensure a flawless, safe and hassle-free holiday for all of you in Africa that is as indulgent and relaxing for you as it is exciting, fun & inspirational for the kids.
