We have seen more and more families travelling to Africa - often multi generational families with children of all ages, aunts, uncles, grandparents and groups of one or two families travelling together. Whoever you are planning on travelling with and whatever size your group - from large families to single parents wanting to take their chilren to experience Africa - we would be delighted to assist you!
Tracks Safaris have travelled the world with our children and they have been to Africa many times - so we are very experienced in the art of travelling with children of all ages and understand the logistics. Africa is an ideal destination for children and we have many loges and camps which offer babysitters, swimming pools, interconnecting rooms, dedicated childrens activities and even dedicated safaris!
If you are travelling with a larger family or friend group then there are smaller camps and safari houses which cost very little more to take over giving your group privacy and exclusivity. Depending on your budget, group size and preferences you can choose from a small group safari around Kenya and Tanzania staying at lodges with swimming pools right up to exlusive safari houses with private butlers, your own cook and exclusive safari vehicles/guides.
We have family accommodation all over Africa - with a huge variety of activities or suite every family member! Try your hand at horseriding, canoeing, white water rafting, embark on a camel safari in northern Kenya or learn to be a Masai warrior for a week - the possibilities are endless.
If your family is up for an adventure we can recommend a small group family adventure to South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Kenya or Tanzania with time at the beach at the end. For older children a safari to Tanzania taking in the Ngorongoro Crater, Rift Valley and the Serengeti is perfect with your own vehicle with private professional driver guide to give you the maximum of flexiblity.
A safari is fun, educational and exhilerating for the whole family. There are a number of questions we will ask you and the more information you give us the easier it will be to help you plan your family's perfect safari!
Leave the planning to us! Call us and let us know when you would like to go, where you would like to go, which type of accommodation would suit you best. An idea of your budget would be useful.
Most importantly, let us know the ages of the children travelling and what is important for your family and your interests – and we will use our experience and expert knowledge of Africa to give you the best options based on that information.
We will offer you a number of options for you to consider and would be happy to discuss each option with you fully on the telephone and answer all your questions. You might like to consider 'malaria free' options for example - which would whittle your choices down to South Africa and more specifically, the eastern Cape, Garden Route, Kwazulu Natal and National Parks such as Madikwe but still give you a huge variety of options and choices.
Once you have decided on your ideal itinerary we will check availability, get the accommodation on hold for you and take a deposit. We can arrange both internal and itnernational flights and any road transfers to link up your chosen accommodation to make a package. And if we purchase the international flights for you too we can ATOL bond your safari for you. Leaving you to look forward to your family adventure of a lifetime!
A safari in Africa is absolutely ideal for families with children of all ages – what is vitally important is selecting exactly the right safari and accommodation. Accommodation which is child friendly and provides suitable activities and facilities. After all, family time is important.
The very best option to start with is to call and talk to us and tell us what you are looking for - we can then get to know you and your family a little better and recommend suitable itineraries for you taking into consideration your budget, ages of children and who will be travelling. We can also build in any current special offers such as free or reduced child places, free nights or free internal flights.
