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.

  • Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.

    We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.

    We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).

    We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)

  • I had just the most incredible time on the climb.

    The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.

    George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.

  • We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.

    Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!

    We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.

    Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.
