Family Safaris

Planning a Family Safari

Booking a family safari in Africa is an exhilarating adventure that can create lasting memories for both parents and children. However, it is important to consider various factors to ensure the best possible experience for everyone involved. Our team, who have travelled with kids themselves, can help to create the most suitable holiday to fit your family’s interests, budget and time-frame.
Our guides know how to amuse children on flights or drives, or to organize that special treats like a pizza, or hamburger at a lodge in the middle of nowhere!

What to Consider?

Choosing the Right Destination:
Some countries are more suitable for younger children, due to easy of travel, age restrictions etc. Namibia and South Africa are both easy countries to travel in with kids if you have the right itinerary.

Age Restrictions:
Due to the safety considerations, some accommodation, as well as day activities and tours, have age restrictions.

Self-drive / Fly-In:
One of the more difficult aspects of travelling with children is managing interactions with fellow guests. You can minimise this problem by either booking a self-drive holiday or, if budget allows, a private fly-in tour.

Balance the Itinerary:
It is important to have a good mix of activities on your trip so children don’t get bored. Balance game viewing with more active pastimes.

Where to Stay:
Some accommodation establishments do not have rooms suitable for families and may not even offer family-friendly rates.  Picking the right accommodation can make or break your trip. If on a self-drive trip you may consider including some camping.

We are there to make your family safari a reality without the extra worries, that is part of the parent package!
