Tanzania for families

 
In Tanzania, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are truly spectacular settings filled with great herds and big cats. We take your family on a luxury safari far from the crowds and minibuses. Your adventure is complete with your own private guide, staying in exclusive accommodation. Families with older teenagers will love the wildly remote Selous, Ruaha and Mahale, where you can walk, canoe and even track chimpanzees. Round it off on exotic Zanzibar.
Your family can track the Great Migration as it moves across the immense Serengeti plains. You can even have your own luxury mobile camp! See big cats, fearsome crocodiles and almost every African animal you can imagine with your own private guide. Spend time with remote tribal communities like the Hadzabe. Stay in the fairy tale like accommodation of Ngorongoro Crater Lodge perched on the rim of the ten-mile-wide crater and then explore the Rift Valley and beautiful Tarangire where 3,000 elephant migrate during the summer school holidays.

Older children will relish the adventure of flying into Southern Tanzania’s enormous remote reserves. You can walk, canoe and fly camp with amazing guides surrounded by wildlife and the vastness of Africa. Track chimpanzees in the Mahale Mountains before cooling off with a swim in Lake Tanganyika. It combines wonderfully with a remote Mozambican island or Zanzibar.

Would Tanzania be the ideal country for your family safari? It’s less travelled than neighbouring Kenya. Yet within Tanzania’s borders are some of Africa’s iconic features: The Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and Kilimanjaro. In the south are vast relatively untouched national parks which have the ingredients for a thrilling family trip with teenagers. Call us. We’ll listen and guide you in your choice of country. In these pages we tell you about what you can look forward to on a Tanzania family safari.

Tanzania is located just south of the Equator and has generally dry, warm weather. The exception is from mid-April to mid-June when the main rains arrive. Tanzania also sees some rain for part of November. These November “short rains” don’t really interfere with your safari. The coast and Zanzibar receive more rainfall and are hotter and more humid than the inland safari regions.

Family sundowners watching elephant in Ruaha
 
It’s 180 miles from Kilimanjaro to the middle of the Serengeti. Packed into that space you have Africa’s tallest mountain, the Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti plains. And more besides! The way the scenery unfolds is spell-binding so we suggest exploring it all in a special private safari vehicle with an expert guide. Then there are the south and west, perhaps Africa’s greatest areas of untapped potential. Selous, Ruaha, Katavi and the Mahale Mountains are wild places, where an adventurous family can enjoy luxury travel of a lifetime.

If you think that being on safari is all about sitting in a vehicle, think again. With Africa Exclusive, your luxury family travel to Tanzania will be full of adventure and new experiences.

family game drive with 2 large elephants
 
In the “safari oscars” we reckon Tanzania wins the numbers of animals, variety of species, and epic landscapes categories! Big cats, impressive migrations and enormous diversity are the ingredients for an amazing family safari. On an Africa Exclusive luxury safari, you get close to the animals and far from the crowds. We do this by using small, exclusive lodges and camps in remote locations and on private reserves

If your concern on safari is being stuck in a convoy of minibuses, never fear! At Africa Exclusive we take you out into the wilds to enjoy all kinds of activities. With expert, personable guides who will keep you safe and open up an amazing world of natural wonder. Walking, boats, canoes, balloons, horses, even bikes can feature on your luxury family safari adventure. And vehicles, of course.

On a great safari you encounter amazing wildlife in spectacular landscapes. You stay at superb luxury lodges. You also meet fascinating, welcoming people. There are over 100 tribes and ethnic groups in Tanzania. On your travels through northern Tanzania, you’ll see children herding goats, people cycling along with huge bunches of bananas, village shops, churches and schools. On safari you’ll get to know brilliant guides and charming hosts.

Going on safari can be much more than just watching animals from a vehicle. Africa Exclusive sets your family free to enjoy the wilds with the best guides. Walking is one of the most exciting ways to explore and learn about the real Africa.

You usually go on safari early morning and late afternoon when the temperatures are cooler and the animals most active. In between, there will be plenty happening around camp to keep the children amused. After your safari, you can fly down to Zanzibar for downtime beside the ocean.

Discover Tanzania’s largest and most remote national park in exclusive, sophisticated comfort. Jabali Private House is a hidden retreat in Ruaha National Park, deep within the country’s wild south. The expert team will guide active families off-the-grid for a true wilderness escape.

Mkombe’s House is the first and only private house in the Serengeti. This is one of our favourite choices for families who want a classic Tanzania safari in exclusivity with expertly personal and attentive service.

kiba point exterior
 
A secluded hideaway in one of the most remote game reserves in Tanzania, Kiba Point is a rustic retreat from modern life. Here your days pass at your own pace, whether you choose to explore by open-sided jeep with a private guide, or intrepidly explore the bush on foot. Since you won’t see any other people while you’re here, it’s the perfect African escape to enjoy with your family.

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.

Luxury twin tent at Little Chem Chem
 
Chem Chem is a wildlife reserve nestled between Lake Manyara and Tarangire national parks, with just three luxury lodges. Little Chem Chem is an eco-sanctuary, perfect for families, where the love of the environment that the owners have is evident everywhere you look. Simply by staying here you are making a difference, since tourism levies go directly to the local communities and conserving the land it's situated on.

Baraza spa pool
 
Palatial in style, Baraza is a resort that is reminiscent of the children’s tales Arabian Nights. A stay in Zanzibar is a relaxing accompaniment to an exhilarating Tanzanian safari with just as many activities, for parents and youngsters alike. Choose to spend your days diving and snorkelling among the coral reefs or windsurfing across the waves.

Camp exterior
 
Seeing the Great Migration is one of life’s greatest privileges. Our favourite way is in an ultra-private, mobile camp, carefully positioned to give you the best views of the ever-moving herds. For discerning families seeking luxury and privacy, our answer is &Beyond’s Serengeti Under Canvas. It is moved around five times a year, giving you a front-row seat no matter when you visit.

Matemwe beach house exterior private pool
 
One of our favourite ways to cap off a safari is with a week on the beach. In Tanzania, there’s no better place to go than Zanzibar. For families after exclusivity, we love super secluded Matemwe Beach House. You’ll have the whole place to yourself with a host of aquatic activities to keep you occupied.

Olivers camp exterior
 
The July and August school holidays coincide with Tanzania’s dry season. If you’re planning family travel to Tanzania at this time, then we’re sure to include a stay in Tarangire. Animals from across the country gather en masse to the permanent water sources here and there’s no better place to stay in the thick of the action than Oliver’s Camp.
