For me, Africa simply lends herself to family holidays and probably more so than most other continents!
One can simply do so much – the diversity is huge. We have been arranging family holidays to Africa for over twenty years – which seems the natural thing to do as we all come from Africa and many of us have children which we delight in taking back each year on safari. The perfect guinea pigs, they are now all completely spoiled for life!
Watching one’s children’s first encounter with wildlife is nothing short of rewarding – rejoicing in their wonderment! Whether it is a ‘bug hunt’ or going ‘frogging’ at night – or simply searching for nocturnal species, it is all one big adventure! Then there is horse riding, camel riding and walking alongside mules with the local tribes, learning what it takes to become a warrior!
They learn equally about the culture as they do the wildlife – learning also about the night sky and the stars and planets. They get to learn about the medicinal properties of trees and plants and the folklore attached to them. Perhaps they might be taught to make and use a bow and arrow or to make a fire without matches. They can quad bike across deserts, spend time with Bushmen tribes, camp out beneath the stars at night – the options are endless! From luxury villas and lodges to camping and everything in between, this continent is your oyster! Perhaps you dont want a safari but would rather visit non malarial South Africa and the Cape or even just visit Mauritius or stay at a villa in Kenya on the coast? And with over 20 years of tailor making the finest family holidays to Africa filled with fun and enjoyment by a team of specialists from Africa, who better to consult for the very best advice?
