For me, the best family holidays are family safari holidays! I take my own family every year on safari back to Africa where I spent most of my life and it entirely enthrals them! There is always simply so much to do and so many new, exciting adventures to try!
Whether you are an urban family who are happiest in the city, and enjoy only the very best of luxury, or a family from the country who are down to earth and enjoy outdoor pursuits including camping and perhaps horse riding and fishing – it offers the best of both worlds!
We have specially selected lodges and camps (and private mobile tented camps erected purely for your family with your own private guide and vehicle) that we have chosen because they particularly suit a family environment. Crucial to this is to have a guide who engages your children at every level – because without this, your safari might be a failure! Teaching your children how to read the night sky of the southern hemisphere, with its stars and planets, to learning about the medicinal properties of trees and plants, to fishing, learning how to canoe, how to quad bike, what behavioural signs to watch for in mammals – and then best of all, learning about another culture. What it takes to become a warrior, how these different tribes live – this is far beyond a holiday – this is an education of an extraordinary kind!
You can then end it off somewhere either on a private boat, visiting islands, or at a private villa which comes complete with skipper and boat, or stay at a lovely resort or chic Robinson Crusoe retreat that caters for every adrenaline charged teenager or a self contained toddler!
Either way, with a team of specialists from Africa who specialise in family safaris, having created countless holidays of a lifetime over the last 25 years, we are perfectly placed to help you!
