Travel to Southern and East Africa on these African family safaris tailored for kids of all ages. On these curated examples, families enjoy private accommodations and the bliss of flexible schedules.

For instance, during the Botswana Family Safari kids can enjoy exploring lagoons and lakes and learn bush survival skills at the Young Explorers camp. They’ll learn the importance of conservation and use their detective skills to track animals with their own private guide. The Zambia family safari incorporates private villas throughout to ensure young ones can join exciting safari activities. Meanwhile parents have peace of mind that private staff will be on hand to create a perfect stay.

In addition, the Kenya family safari focuses on flexible schedules, promising plenty of downtime for naps in between adventures. The Tanzania family safari makes use of private houses designed specifically with child-friendly journeys of discovery in mind.

There’s also the South Africa family safari that incorporates the malaria-free Eastern Cape, as well as whale watching in the Garden Route. Family safaris don’t have to focus entirely on big five game viewing. For example, fynbos flower safaris and milkwood forest walks at Grootbos help kids learn about delicate ecosystems up close.
