Family Safaris and Holidays to Africa
Family Safaris are an exhilarating journey for a family. With new experiences at every turn, action-packed days families travelling in Africa have a great opportunity to bond, communicate and interact with each other whilst learning so much about themselves and the world around them. To encourage more families to travel, family rooms have been built in some of the lodges and camps so children are able to sleep in their own room adjacent to their parents. These family rooms are either joined directly to the parents’ tent or have a direct inter-leading veranda. The bathroom is often shared. Children staying in these rooms get a discount on their accommodation costs. We are always careful to ensure that children do not negatively impact on other guests’ experiences and therefore have firm policies.
Apart from the safari part of your family holiday to Africa there are also a number of other highly popular destinations which should be included in your trip. These destinations are Cape Town and The Garden Route, The North Coast and Sun City.
A lot of famlilies travelleing to Africa have young children and prefer malaria free safaris. Two malaria free Game Reserves that offer Big Five Safaris which we can recommend are Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West and Shamwari Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape. For families who do not mind a malaria area we can highly reccommend the Sabi Sands Reserve and the Timbavati Reserve which are part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Many of the private lodges cater for children and even have children programs designed especially for Family Safaris.
Cape Town in South Africa is an extremely popular destination for travellers with families. When it comes to the children, no matter how old, one is literally spoilt for choice. With a myriad of activities available such as the V&A Waterfont, Two Oceans Aquariam, Cape Peninsular National Park, Ratanga Junction, the Planetarium, the MTN ScienCentre and many more, Cape Town is sure to provide a wonderfull Family Vacation.
