A great place for a family safari

 
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.

If your family wants just a few days on safari, we will select a reserve with all the Big Five and a wide variety of wildlife. You can enjoy a superb malaria-free safari on reserves like Madikwe in the north or those in the Eastern Cape. If your children are older, Phinda in KwaZulu Natal has seven distinct ecosystems on its large reserve, abundant wildlife and lots of activities. This diversity also makes it a good choice if you just want one safari location.

South Africa has wildlife reserves in deserts, coastal forests, savannah plains, mountains and beside rivers. Each area has different landscapes and its own mix of wildlife and birds. Your family will delight in seeking out meerkats in the Kalahari, turtles by the ocean and cheetah on short grass plains. Two contrasting safari reserves in a week or three in ten days works well and we can take you quickly by air between locations.

You can take children of any age on safari in South Africa where lots of reserves are malaria-free. Also, many properties are designed very much with children in mind. Take a look at some of the lodges we feature and you will be astonished at the facilities! There are beautifully designed villas with private pools, their own guides and chef. We can arrange babysitters while the older children follow their interests on safari with your private guide.

We always encourage families to get out of the vehicle and explore your surroundings. The key is your guide and we only use the best. On a walk beside a river your children will discover something fascinating every few minutes. Tracks, plants with medicinal uses and fascinating smaller creatures. You can ride horseback, float at dawn in a balloon, swim with turtles and mountain bike. You can also see conservation in action.
