Parents these days are seeing the value and importance of quality family time away from the trappings of technology-filled lives. The wildlife safari reserves in Africa are a combination of a playground and schoolroom for children and adults alike. A family-friendly & even orientated African Safari provides the ideal platform for families to bond and share “once in a lifetime” experiences. It is rich, not in neon-lit malls, but in wildlife, scenery, cultures and safe, adventurous fun for the whole family. Africa is appealing to multi-generational families because unlike computer games, a safari game drive will captivate granddad as well as your 12 year old!
Imagine watching baby elephants splash each other at a waterhole… or following a pride of lions as they hunt. Hear the call of a Bushbaby after sunset… or watch a leatherback turtle lay her eggs. Learn to identify animal tracks… or learn to beat an African drum. What about riding an ostrich or tracking a cheetah? Paddle a canoe quietly upriver or hurtle down the white water on a raft. Sample delicious African cuisine after horse riding alongside a herd of giraffe. Be enchanted by African fables around the camp fire and learn to identify the southern star constellations. Read More
There are destinations to suit your family’s interests, age range and travelling style. See the Big Five in the Sabi Sand and the Kruger Park or witness the migration in the Masai Mara and the Serengeti. Go gorilla trekking in the jungles of East Africa. Choose from the malaria-free game reserves in the Eastern Cape or the Madikwe. The mighty Victoria Falls offers fun adrenalin enhancing heli flips and elephant back safaris. Explore the lagoons, forests and beaches of the Garden Route. Go whale and dolphin watching or shark cage diving in the Cape. Play on Cape Town’s beaches and climb Table Mountain. Be awed by the vibrant colour, dance and history of the Zulu kingdom. Climb the highest sand dunes in Namibia. Take lots of photographs to remember the special moments together.
The luxury of our African Family Safaris is not in the sumptuousness of your suite, it is the knowledgeable guide, the pristine setting and watching your children have a life changing experience. Luxury is also knowing that you are in excellent hands – that all transfers and connections will be arranged. That smiling, friendly people will assist you every step of the way on our Family Safaris.
