A Family Safari by African Savannah Trails is fun-filled and educational for children and adults alike! Surrounded by cultural, historical and natural treasures are exceptional enlightening ways to spend time bonding as a family. The scenery and wildlife open a whole new world to your youngsters, and you get to watch their inquisitive minds and imaginations grow! Sit with your child along a mighty African river such as the Zambezi or Mara and travel across the plains, and unexpectedly, you as well see things in a distinct way. Planning a family trip to Eastern and Southern Africa instills excitement and curiosity, and African Savannah Trails ensures that you have a safe and joyful exploratory wildlife vacation. We advise you about vaccinations and other precautions, as well as arrange all of your flights and ground transportation.
Additionally, our guides are specially trained to keep a watchful eye on young family members while out in the bush. All of this is accomplished without making your child feel restrained from enjoying their surroundings. Africa offers only some specialist family friendly accommodations that tailor to the wholesome needs of children, including special activities and programs catered towards their preference. Children spend their days learning to throw spears with warriors or archery, beading with village women, participating in animal orphanages, meeting children their age at local schools and even helping prepare making meals with an in-house camp chef.
For the ultimate African getaway, we can even arrange for your family to stay in a private house – like Luangwa Safari House, Mara Bush House, Chongwe River House or Cottar’s Homestead, with a personal butler and full discreet staff to tend to daily housekeeping, meal preparation and exclusive safari guiding for all of your outback tour activities. Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and South Africa are the key first-time safari destinations for families to safely and comfortably enjoy their experience. Parks and reserves like the Lower Zambezi, South Luangwa, Great Rift Valley lakes of Nakuru and Naivasha, Samburu, Laikipia, Masai Mara, Serengeti, Tarangire, Sabi Sand, Shamwari and Phinda are wonderful introductory family safari experiences for multi-generation households. The larger tent or room sizes allows for the ability to supplement additional beds for the children with some having interconnecting tents and lodge rooms.
