Family Safaris

Kids love Africa. They like to spot the animals, be surrounded by nature, learn from the guide and occassional have a jump in the swimming pool. Some destinations are very hot, in order to avoid the high temperatures or heavy rainfall, we will advise you on the best season to go.

Which destination is best for families?

In some destinations it can be very hot or there can be heavy rains. In order to travel in the most suitable travel period, we are happy to advise on the best travel time for the desired destination and activities.

Big kids / little kids

It goes without saying that we into account the age of the children in terms of destination, activities and accommodations. If your child has a special hobby, please tell us and we can see if there is something special to be experienced in Africa. 

Stress free

Depending on the age of the children, we make a travel proposal. One lodge is not suitable for small children because of too much roaming game, while a teenager wants to spend the night in an adventurous location where there is plenty to do. We ensure that it is a carefree holiday, arranged from A to Z, so that the whole family can enjoy the beautiful continent.

Family rooms

Depending on your wishes, we ensure that you stay in family rooms or adjacent rooms if the kids are older and want more freedom. Everything in consultation.
