Family Safari Ideas for 2017

October 18 2016

As multi-generational travel becomes increasingly common, more families are looking for child-friendly safari options. Zimbabwe and Botswana offer an excellent selection of family-oriented camps and an array of child focused activities.

We particularly like the camps operated by African Bush Camps. Their Somalisa Acacia and Linyanti Ebony are both family orientated camps that boast revolutionary family style tents. They have specially designed covered walkways so that parents no longer need to split up or share with young children. Their camps also have dedicated child specialist guides who are committed to giving children the experience of a lifetime whilst on safari.

As seen in this Travelling with Children Fact Sheet, they offer exceptional child focused activities in camp such as guided exploration of the areas around camp, beading and craft activities, interactive learning about local culture and customs and pizza-making with the chef in camp.

2017 will see African Bush Camps expand their family-focused safari offerings in Botswana with Khwai Leadwood, and into Zambia with Thorntree River Lodge, which will have 2 family units each. Outposts Travel Africa can tailor-make your safari experience in Africa and make suggestions to suit the ages of your children, your interests and wishes.
