There's an art and a bit more of a challenge to designing the perfect family holiday. And we love a holiday challenge! We design each holiday from scratch so our starting point will be the make-up of your family, what you each enjoy, the age of your children and any hobbies or current fascinations. We also love hearing about where you have enjoyed visiting together on past holidays. Using this information we will pull together a trip perfectly tailored to your family with each detail thought through ... leaving you to just focus on the packing! Let's get started before the other families take the best hotels!

Children On Safari

0-6 years – Please contact us on 01273 923100 to talk through the options for this age group. There are safaris we can recommend in non-malarial areas. Generally these lodges have children-specific safaris or the option for a private guide and vehicle so that you can ensure the safari is suited to your child.

7-12 years – Children of this age tend to love safaris especially when they get to track animals. Some lodges offer special “bush school” programmes for children. Guides are experienced in working with kids, and will show them how to recognise the spoor – tracks and droppings – as well as plants and small creatures. The only consideration for this age group is how long your children will be happy to sit in a vehicle before they get restless.

> 13 years – Teenagers tend to love safaris and are interested in what the guides have to say as well as learning about the local culture and meeting the locals. This is the age that we would highly recommend mobile safaris, where you go on safari by day and camp in a different spot each night experiencing the raw sounds, smells and noises of the bush with nothing else around.
