Regardless of how many stuffed animals they own or how many
times they've seen The Lion King, nothing even comes close to
seeing African wildlife in its natural habitat for the first time
(or even the fifth time, in our opinion).
Safety comes first with children (and, in fact, anyone) on
safari and a great guide will ensure parents never have to worry.
Guides will pack days full of family-friendly and educational
activities like dung identification (yes, really), paw/ hoof print
tracking and learning about the medicinal properties of the local
flora. As well as helping tick off those Lion King species
checklists too, of course.
For families with younger children we can't recommend
South Africa enough for a safari, as large areas of the country
are completely malaria-free, meaning no pesky malaria pills to do
battle with. We know all the best camps and guides to ensure your
family safari vacation is as educational as it is fun.
For teenagers, a safari is the ultimate vacation with so much
diversity in terms of what they can see and do, from incredible
wildlife to stunning landscapes and adrenaline-filled activities
(quad biking anyone?). If there's a better way to draw teenagers
away from screens and social media than taking them on safari, we'd
love to hear it.
If the plains of Africa don't appeal, there are plenty of other
options to take your kids for some wildlife spotting. You could see
orang-utans, pygmy elephants and the strange looking proboscis
monkey in Borneo,
discover the incredible biodiversity of Costa
Rica or check out the giant tortoises and tropical penguins in
Islands. Wherever you choose to go, we can arrange private
guides to give you all the low-down on what you see.
What's not to love about a family vacation that everyone from
five-year olds to grumpy teenagers will enjoy?
