Safari Holidays With Kids

Safari Holidays with Kids

Safari Holidays with kids are a wonderful way to introduce children of all ages to wildlife in its natural environment, but it’s worth doing some research to find the right kind of safari, in the right destination, so those little ones will be engaged and inspired, not bored.


SPECIAL ADVICE FOR FAMILIES ON A SAFARI HOLIDAY WITH KIDS


Going on safari Holidays with kids is a life-changing experience. The landscape is an enormous outdoor classroom and the safari guides will be some of the most inspiring teachers your children might ever have. Africa is not a zoo, of course, so spending time following prints and identifying poo will while away the time between sightings!.

Children aged eight (08) and up will gain the most from a trip – journeys can be long, and morning game drives early and chilly. Bush walks may be limited to those over 12 or 14, so do check with Us on what we got for the age groups.

Kenya and Uganda are our top choices, especially for younger families, with an abundance of superb guides and tailored lodges with swimming pools and games rooms.


IDEAS ON WHAT MIGHT WORK FOR THE KIDS ON SAFARI

CAMPING FOR THE KIDS


Older kids – 15+ should experience bush camping. In a lodge, you only experience the park during the activities. You do a game drive, then go back indoors. But when you camp, you’re in that natural environment 24/7. You experience the sounds, the smells, the noises at night –  its truly a holiday into Africa!

Check out Small Group Family Tours. Many often wonder why to travel with other people’s kids. But when you do, you will realize you’re not traveling with them – your kids are. They’ve got ready-made playmates, they share, they learn. It’s great to listen to them discussing the lions they’ve just seen.”

BUSH SCHOOL EXPERIENCES


Some lodges offer special “bush school” programmes for children. Guides are experienced in working with kids and will show them how to recognize the tracks and droppings – as well as plants and small creatures. It’s fun, very hands-on – and totally safe. Plus it gives parents the chance to enjoy the game drives.
