Our favourite experiences for the children on your family safari holiday
Dive into the deep blue to open up a whole new world. Snorkeling and SCUBA diving are both wonderfully unique ways to explore the natural world as a family. Once you've discovered the underwater world as a family, you'll likely want to do so time and again on future adventures.
A walking safari is, without doubt, one of the most intimate ways you can get up close and personal with Africa's incredible wildlife. Plus, it is not as daunting as you might think.
The reasons to make your family safari holiday a privately guided one are many, and once you've experienced the delight, you'll likely never go back.
People often ask us if they should take their children on safari, and our answer is always a resounding, yes. Not only are children enthralled by all there is to see, learn and do in the wild, but many of the operators we work with offer specially tailored kids’ safari activities.
Some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife species are seriously threatened, and luckily there are amazing people working tirelessly to reverse that reality.
Visiting an elephant rehabilitation centre is an incredible way to get up close and personal with orphaned baby elephants, and occasionally other African safari animals too.
Nothing gets a safari enthusiast more perked up than mention of the fabled 'Big Five', which for many are the most desirable species to see on safari. Namely, lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. Learn more about these majestic beasts and where to find them.
The African coastline boasts some of the world’s best deep-sea fishing, and angling on lakes and rivers in the wilderness can be a beautifully immersive way to interact with the environment. Fishing safaris are a magical mixture of meditative calm, and wild exhilaration.
When people imagine an African safari, it's usually the big cats and wild mammals that spring to mind. But, after decades of bush adventures, we've come to appreciate birds as much as we do the bigger beasts -- and for a family safari holiday, igniting an interest in our avian friends promises rich rewards that are reaped for a lifetime.
The Great Migration truly is among the most sensational wildlife spectacles imaginable, occurring only in Kenya and Tanzania. More than two million grazing animals migrate across the plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara in an annual cycle that began with the eruption of Ngorongoro nearly 3 million years ago.
Few experiences are as evocative as a hot air balloon ride over the African wilderness, and it's an adventure that holds a special place in our hearts. Gliding silently and serenely aloft, you'll watch the world come to life with the sunrise, then drift down to a champagne breakfast in the middle of the bush.
