Family Safari Travel Tips

The key to a fulfilling, exciting safari with children is proper planning. In addition to choosing the right accommodations to fit your needs, you also want to take into consideration the right mix of cultural activities and wildlife viewing. With the right safari planning you can have a trip that gives you quality family time.

A Few Tips

  • Camps have different age limits so choose the ones that are appropriate for your children and that have family tents or rooms and special activities for children.
  • Choose camps that have swimming pools or bikes so kids can let loose and burn off energy after being confined to a vehicle.
  • Book a private vehicle at the camps.
  • Schedule plenty of cultural activities. Children love to meet other kids from the local villages and see how they live, play and learn.
