Rediscover nature on a family safari holiday

Enjoy an exciting, family-friendly holiday on safari in South Africa or Kenya - learn about the Big Five animals and unwind back at your lodge.

Taking a wish-list trip is one outstanding way to introduce your children to the wider world around them. Rather than learning about diverse cultures, wildlife, cuisine, and environments in their schoolbooks (though that’s important, too!), an international trip will allow them to be immersed in another way of life. So, if this is something you’re passionate about, we know you’re going to love our family safari holidays.

Build new memories together with a sighting of the Big Five in the wild (that means lions, rhinos, elephants, leopards, and buffalo - oh my!). The whole family can delight in a South Africa safari, with Kruger National Park, Africa’s oldest wildlife conservation area boasting pristine grasslands and opportunities to spot one of the big five in the wild. If you have always been curious about the unique experience of staying in an African bush lodge, a Kenya safari holiday will give the family the chance to experience East Africa’s vast natural beauty and rare wildlife while being able to unwind together.

Our safari holidays are family-friendly chiefly because of the educational factor, children and adults alike will feel informed and educated by the visual and interactive style of learning. We can guarantee you will never get bored! Our guides won’t talk at you, they will go above and beyond to ensure you are having an immersive learning experience. For some of our safari holidays, we are pleased to offer discounted pricing for younger children.

Out safari holidays are also well-suited for families because safaris tend to use small vehicles with six to nine people, maximum. Most of our safari accommodation providers also have swimming pools, which we know the children will love after a big day out spotting wildlife.
