Nothing beats the raw drama, adventure and suspense experienced on a family safari holiday in Africa. Go in search of the big cats across the Savannah, see giraffes, zebras and elephants grazing their day away and hear the grunts and barks of baboons as the sun sets.

Going on a safari with your children is a life-changing experience. The landscape is an enormous outdoor classroom and our Safari Guides will be some of the most inspiring teachers your children ever have. The Guides will pack days full of family-friendly and educational activities such as dung identification, paw/hoof print tracking and learning about the medicinal properties of the local flora.

Families with younger children will love the malaria-free Safaris in the Eastern and Western Capes of South Africa that offer a wide variety of child friendly activities.

Safety comes first with children (and, in fact, anyone) on safari and a our experienced Guide will ensure parents never have to worry.

For teenagers, a safari is the ultimate holiday, with so much diversity in terms of what they can see and do, from incredible wildlife to stunning landscapes and adrenaline-filled activities (quad biking anyone?). If there’s a better way to draw teenagers away from screens and social media than taking them on a family safari, we’d love to hear it.

  • To really enjoy a Big 5 Safari, let your eyes take all the pictures and the camera a few for memories – pack (and leave) your mobile devices at the very bottom of your luggage.
  • Pack Safari Colour clothing – biege, khakhi, brown, army green,white – and light but ‘tough’ boots for Safari Walks.
  • Be adventurous, bold and calm whilst on Safari. Always listen to your Guide, be attentive and enjoy your surroundings as you are now part of the habitat.
  • Don’t rush – we advise at least three nights per national park/ safari camp – never mind the days, enjoy every bit of the experience, you will certainly be back soon .
  • Do combine a couple of national parks/safari camps, you get to see different habitats and experience more of Southern Africa.
  • If you are afraid of mosquitoes, it’s very easy to arrange a Malaria Free Big 5 Safari in Malaria Free Areas like the Eastern Cape.
  • A few nights on the beach complement a family safari perfectly.
  • Make sure you have a pair of binoculars each.
  • Take sunhats, sun-block and pack a fleece / windproof too – Africa can be colder than you might expect.
