SAFARIS WITH YOUNGER CHILDREN

 
Young children delight to see wild animals in their natural environment. With Africa Exclusive your safari will be expertly designed to match your family’s needs and interests. We use the best guides and arrange superb accommodation in the wilds of Africa.
At Africa Exclusive, we know the best properties to cater to the needs of a young family. Many have multi-bedroom luxury accommodation with every comfort and convenience. Yet they are in genuinely remote and private locations. The food is excellent and special diets are catered for. A relaxed atmosphere and superb staff help to ensure that your children feel at home in camp. In between safaris, take a dip in the pool, play games or enjoy a walk around camp in search of mini beasts.

For younger families, safaris are mainly by specially equipped safari vehicles. You will usually have your own private vehicle and guide for maximum flexibility. This way you can move easily and safely, seeking the animals and enjoying the beautiful landscapes with a fully stocked cool box in the back. Your expert guide can also take you on fascinating short walks, boat safaris and horse riding. Often you can meet local people and visit a village or school.

A safari is highly educational and great fun. Most of Africa has good weather from July through to Christmas and southern Africa also enjoys good weather during Easter. You can expect to see many different animals and the scenery is amazing — the Masai Mara, Rift Valley, Okavango Delta and Ngorongoro Crater are a few of Africa’s most spectacular safari regions. For a malaria free safari, South Africa is an excellent choice; you can easily combine it with Cape Town and the Garden Route. Take a look at the family safari ideas below, or better still, call us now.

seba camp exterior view with family swimming pool
 
Seba Camp is located in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, a vast expanse of open grasslands, rich forests, swaying palm trees and crystal pure waterways. This is one of the most family-friendly properties in Botswana, with two family suites and specialist guides and activities that are both engaging and fun for children.

Family walking across the lawn at Lewa House
 
Lewa House is more than simply a place to rest your head after your safaris. It’s the intangible warmth of being welcomed as family by owners Calum and Sophie McFarlane with the touches of home that make it a unique experience. You’ll wake in your thatched cottage to share biscuits on the veranda with the resident ‘go-away-birds’, soaking in the landscape of gently sloping plains and distant mountains.

Veranda at night at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
 
Cresting the rim of its namesake, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is a favourite of ours for parents and children alike. The vistas of the crater are visible from everywhere in your suite, surrounding you with the sunlit beauty of one of Africa’s most spectacular landscapes. Children of all ages are welcome here and will love picnics on the crater floor as well as the WILDChild programme.

With children, you’re often tied to travel at Christmas, Easter or in the summer. Call us to discuss which locations are best for the kind of safari you’re seeking at the time of year you wish to travel. We’ll take into account the weather patterns, the main animal migrations and best beach options to create the perfect family safari.

Botswana is one of the best places for a family holiday of a lifetime! There are millions of animals across plains, deserts and deltas. You fly in a small plane to small luxury camps with superb family accommodation. There’s so much to see and do and every day is new and exciting. Victoria Falls is close by and there are direct flights down to Cape Town.

Kids watching zebra on family friendly game drive
 
South Africa is an excellent choice for family travel with children of all ages. Its wildlife is abundant, with a great diversity of species, including the Big Five: rhino, leopard, lion, elephant and buffalo. There are vast malaria-free reserves and it’s easy to get from safari regions to Cape Town and the beach. We usually recommend safaris on private reserves where there are few tourists and the opportunity for more flexible safari activities. We can also arrange private, luxury family accommodation; imagine a palatial villa in the wilds with your own safari guide, pool and private chef.

A safari holiday gives your family a wonderful chance to meet local tribal people and experience their culture. This is especially true in Tanzania and Kenya where colourful Maasai and Samburu tribes live. These encounters are arranged privately for your family in a natural way. There are no tour groups and no-one pressing you to buy things or give money.

The Kalahari is a fascinating place for a family safari. The children can sit by a meerkat den watching these curious little creatures foraging and playing as one stands guard on its hind legs looking out for eagles. They can watch enthralled as a San Bushman reveals hidden secrets that have enabled them to survive here for thousands of years.
