Admit it, Tanzania was always on your getaway list until the children came knocking. But now, with the idyllic islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago and an abundance of family-friendly wildlife lodges and safaris, a Tanzania Family holiday could be the perfect excuse to tick it off that list.
Whether you'd like to tow behind the teens as they meander
through Zanzibar's cobbled streets of Stone Town, slap on sun cream
as you lay on a pristine Tanzanian beach, or go out spotting the
Big Five on an open-top safari, our Original Travellers have been
there and done that when it comes to a trip to Tanzania. Whether
you want to find freedom in one of our hand-picked, child-friendly
resorts, lodges or camps; or connect with the country while
exploring with one of our local guides our specialists will design
a tailor-made itinerary to suit the whole family.
The first stop on your mind might be the Zanzibar
Archipelago - a perfect place to begin a Tanzania Family
holiday. Idyllic beaches with soft, powdered sand; luxury resorts
galore; and clear, blue water make trekking, snorkelling, and
swimming a perfect way to wear out any energy mustered up from the
flight. Once you've dragged your family from the coast, head inland
to Jozani forest, or, if you'd like to inject some culture into the
trip, delve into the Darajani Market to hone your haggling
Continuing along the coast, stay on the shores of the Rufiji
River in a luxury tented camp which borders the quieter, unspoiled
Selous and Ruaha Reserves. By day, spot the Ruaha lions and
crocodiles on boating and 4x4 safaris and, come evening, sip
sundowners beside the fire pit while the little ones are kept
happily entertained with our tailored Sharky & George packs,
bursting to the brim with fun and engaging activities.
After you've ticked off the coast, make a beeline for one of
Tanzania's many family-friendly game reserves. In the north, are
the endless plains of the Serengeti
- a wildlife savannah home to an incredible concentration of
diverse wildlife. For the teenage thrill-seekers, explore the
Serengeti on foot on a guided walking safari, or - for those with
smaller children - enjoy the comfort and safety of one of our
recommended private lodges and 4x4 experiences.
