Family Safaris

A Family on Safari

What better way, to be able to spend quality time with your family, than in the African bush!

Away from all the hassles of city life, school, and your normal family day to day chores.

There is nothing more rewarding, than watching your child experience there first Elephant encounter, or spotting there first Giraffe.

We realise that there are many lodges out there that do not cater for children, or that they have to be of a certain age. However we have many choices of lodges that do, and having children of our own, who have enjoyed the bush with us on many occasions, we have figured out what it is that they enjoy about their time on safari. From providing them with activities that include ticking off their animal and bird list sightings, to teaching them about tracking, and the different animal spoor that we encounter on a daily basis. They might also get the opportunity to catch a fish, and enjoy some time around the camp fire roasting some marshmallows.

Our favourite family safari, is to spend time doing a private safari at Walkers River camp in the Timbavati Game Reserve, Greater Kruger National Park. The beauty of using this camp, is that you will have the camp to yourself, as well as having the safari vehicle to yourselves. This way parents can feel more relaxed that their children are not interrupting other travellers on their safari.

This way we can do the game drives the way it suites you and your family, as far as meal times go, time on the safari vehicle, and the time you spend in camp having fun with the children around the pool etc.

Other than that, there are a lot of other lodges out there, should this option not suite you.

Let us plan a great tailor-made family safari for you.
