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.

  • Service rating : Great support from Ben from looking at different holiday options to sorting out an issue we had with our room in Mauritius. I would highly recommended using Tourist for help you with your holiday plan and booking.
    Product : our requirements were addressed and both venues exceeded our expectations

  • Hi, just back home now as stayed in London last night. It was fab! We loved it! Amazing all round- Thankyou. Best holiday ever!!!

    Accommodation great at both places, guides lovely, staff great. We saw more animals than ever expected: giraffes, lion, elephants, water hog, wilder beast, impala, white rhino, crocodiles, hippos in lake Sybia, monkeys in trees at Tonga.

    Beach beautiful, but a bit windy, waves v rough but didn’t deter my boys. We snorkeled which was fab but too rough on day we booked to do ocean experience.

    My boys swam in all pools!!!

    Weather better than we expected!

    Must go and do some laundry, but hope that helps?

    Best Nicola

  • Hi Lisa

    We had an amazing holiday.

    Everything was fantastic.

    The transport wa spot on, great drivers, all on time, vans really comfortable and water supplied, a really nice way to travel, and you also get to hear all about the local area. Both companies were excellent.

    Virgin - was a brilliant airline, not sure why I haven't used them before, SO much better than BA.

    Rhino ridge was amazing from start to finish. We has a great female safari guide, who we got very fond of. The wildlife is more sparse but as its more challenging to find we enjoyed this, the surrounding are spectacular. Our guide had great knowledge of the birds. walking safari was excellent and highly recommend. The rooms were superb, very comfortable.

    Thonga beach lodge staff were brilliant, the whole place was amazing, the range of activities excellent and again out guides excellent. The food was wonderful. Again the bird guiding and general guiding was brilliant. We really enjoyed the cultural side of our visit, seeing the local communities and church etc. My only comment on thonga for future guests would be if they can afford it maybe to go for a lodge with a ocean view, our lodge was great , the childrens was quite cramped and low down with a very damp musty smell - not that they noticed it, but I think if people were expecting luxury they might not get what they wanted... saying that it was fantastic for us. The lodge staff were amazing and went out of their way for us.

    Oyster box was a phenomenal hotel and quite a shock to be back in the world after Thonga - but really worth the stay - we loved it, they Kindly gave us a room for the next day as we had a late flight.

    The whole experience was brilliant and really well organised- thank you. We ALL loved everything!

    On reflection:

    we loved having transport rather than driving, it meant we could relax , sleep and find out about the country from the driver.

    If we changed anything, I might spend a little less time at the beach and maybe take in another safari region also. We were repeatedly recommended the Phinda private game reserve (andBeyond) so maybe we would have spent a couple of nights there, in addition, local guides and the tour people said it would give good variety to the Rhino ridge.

    However we were 100% happy with what we did, we really look forward to our next safari !!!

    Best wishes

    Ali
