SCHOOL HOLIDAY SAFARIS

 
Your family safari will usually be timed to coincide with Christmas, Easter or the summer holiday. The good news is that we can tailor make excellent safaris at these times of year, taking into account seasonal wildlife movements and climatic conditions. We can also make the most of the shorter half term breaks. With minimal time difference from Europe, direct flights to many African destinations and our smart logistics we can have you on safari the morning you arrive. Fret not if you are travelling from further afield, we have fantastic options for you and your family too.

Christmas, Thanksgiving and February Half Term

Kenya is an international hub for East Africa so access is straightforward, it also offers excellent weather when it’s freezing in Europe and North America. The great wildebeest and zebra migration is gathering on the short grass plains of the Serengeti and we can arrange for your family to be in the middle of the action. Combine the Serengeti with the stupendous Ngorongoro Crater and maybe round off your holiday on exotic Zanzibar. In Kenya, private reserves are pioneering conservation in partnership with tribal communities. See how the endangered rhinoceros are thriving so well that they are being moved to repopulate other safe areas.

The Cape enjoys high summer at Christmas. Spend a few days in lively Cape Town before heading along the Garden Route for a malaria free safari on the magnificent Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. Cape Town also combines easily with Botswana where you can enjoy an exclusive safari in the Okavango Delta.

Easter, Spring Break and June Half Term

This is a great time to visit southern Africa. By Easter the sparse summer rains have finished, leaving the deserts of the Namib and Kalahari looking spectacular and momentarily green. Brief migrations of zebra and birds flash across the Makgadikgadi Pans of Botswana and these are also outstanding conditions for game viewing in the Okavango. A short flight north can take you to Victoria Falls where the waterfall is at its magnificent best. Get an eagle’s eye view from a helicopter or even a microlight.

Autumn clothes the Cape in gorgeous hues of red, orange and yellow and it’s a good time to visit any of South Africa’s malaria free reserves such as Madikwe. April to June are also some of the best months to explore Namibia, as temperatures fall and dry weather encourages huge numbers of animals to gather around the Etosha salt pan

Summer and Autumn Half Term

June to October is prime season for safaris throughout Africa. For a family with active teenagers Zambia provides the holiday of a lifetime as you canoe the Zambezi, white water raft a whole day beneath Victoria Falls and track elephants and plains game on foot through the idyllic Luangwa Valley.

Further north, the wildebeest migration moves from the Serengeti into the Masai Mara in a sequence of chaotic river crossings. We can arrange a small lodge fly-in safari to Kenya’s private reserves so that you can see this magnificent country without encountering the busy tourist areas. On these reserves you can enjoy horse riding, mountain biking, quad biking and walking with Maasai warriors in addition to traditional game drives. Also you have the chance to meet some of the tribal community families who partner with the safari lodges to conserve the wildlife and fragile habitats.
