What makes the ideal family safari?

January 23 2015

Here are a few top tips from Nomad Tanzania on planning a safari with youngsters:

  • Spend longer in fewer places.
  • Include places that offer activities like boating or walking in addition to game drives.
  • Think about places with a cultural element; many children adore a bit of bow & arrow action with the Maasai, or meeting kiddies their own age in a local village.
  • Pools are popular for a bit of fun and relaxation between game viewing.
  • Look for camps where you can have exclusivity because it makes for more flexibility in activities and meals which might suit your little people.
  • Good guiding is key because a great guide will provide no end of entertainment.
  • Check minimum ages - some camps have age restrictions for safety.
