A safari might not be the first activity that comes to mind when planning a vacation with young children, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better experience that exposes your little ones to nature, wildlife and traditional African cultures. It is a getaway that’s both entertaining and educational for the youngest in the family.
Each of the family lodges we use offer a host of fascinating and entertaining activities for children aged 3–12 years, bringing alive the magic of Africa.
