The Family Safari Specialists

Family Safaris

Our specialist safari team have vast experience of designing safaris and all have children of our own. Over the years, we've dragged our kids on safari throughout Africa and know from first hand experience what makes for a great family safari.

South Africa is currently one of the most affordable safari destinations. Food and drink is invariably excellent and guiding standards are high. We find South Africa is best suited to those families looking for a short safari experience combined with wider travels in Cape Town, the Garden Route, the Drakensberg and KwaZulu Natal Wetlands areas.

Kenya is arguably our favourite safari destinations for families. It boasts incredible wildlife and wilderness and some of the best family friendly safari camps on the Continent (e.g. Laikipia Wilderness and Mara Bush Houses). Kenya also tends to be relatively good value and combines well with the beaches of the Kenya Coast.

Like Kenya, Tanzania offers a stunning wildlife experience and good combinations with Indian Ocean beaches on Zanzibar. Whilst it doesn't have the superb family focused camps of Kenya, Tanzania offers an excellent balance of safari, beaches and safety.

For the ultimate exclusive safari experience, Botswana's Okavango Delta is unlike anything else on the Continent. Prices can be high, but Botswana is one of the safest countries in Africa and the wildlife experience is second to none.

Average Rating

(4.93/5)

  • Service rating : Basic holiday with tailored extras as we requested.
    All transfers/tours proceeded like clockwork.
    Product : Safari excellent. Rustic accommodation but this added to the experience. Lovely group of staff/rangers at our lodge.

    Cape town accommodation and Cape Point tour excellent. Good central location with amenities for dining/sightseeing.

    Oyster Box location excellent and sea view really appreciated.
    We felt the service was a bit overattentive at times (plates removed before you'd finished etc) and were a bit uncomfortable with the 'colonial' uniforms/obsequious greetings, but maybe that's just our Scottish calvinism as we appreciate the hotel is a local institution!
    Our shower never worked correctly during our stay, though the hotel did make great efforts to fix it and gave us a complimentary meal one evening to compensate for this.

    Ben feefo reviewer verified review for South Africa Bush & Beach Safari For Families on 23 April 2018

  • Service rating : Really helpful, knowledgeable and patient. Well organised and great communication. Would certainly book with Tourdust again.
    Product : Spekes Camp was amazing- really personal service - we had a Land Rover to ourselves - and they really go the extra mile to create a memorable safari experience. Everyone made our boys feel really at home (age 11 and 12), so definitely recommend if you have kids.

    Ben feefo reviewer verified review for Masai Mara Safari & Beach on 07 September 2017

  • Service rating : I initially told Tourdust what I hoped to achieve from our forthcoming holiday. I was a little nervous taking a 10 year old child with me on my own to a country I knew nothing about. Lisa Fisher at Tourdust made suggestions as to what we should do and I went along with her ideas. This made for the perfect safari holiday for myself and my grand-daughter. We went there knowing exactly what we were doing, felt safe and really enjoyed all of it
    Product : Everything went to plan. There was a representative waiting for us at Durban airport; he took us to our first hotel which was very well chosen and perfect for our first night; We were picked up the following day in a luxury car and taken to our Safari location where we were made very welcome. We had 4 wonderful days there, spotting fantastic wildlife. The accommodation and hospitality were absolutely brilliant. We were then taken to one of the best hotels we have ever been to on the coast for 3 more days of luxury before being transported back to the airport for our return journey.
