Perfect Family Safari
You'll want your family safari to be planned and organized to perfection, which is where we come in. Over 22 years we have arranged hundreds of unique safaris for families of all ages. We listen to your dreams of Africa, and make them come true, selecting the right areas, accommodation and expert guides. Every day and every move is meticulously organized.
At the foot of this page we've listed some of our favorite family safari lodges . Some have 2 bedrooms and a living area so a younger family can all be together. Some are amazingly upscale. Some are more simple and adventurous. All are authentic and in the heart of the real wilds of Africa, far from the crowds.
Children can enjoy safaris from around age 4 and are spellbound by the sight of animals they've seen in storybooks come to life. African guides have endless patience and love to gently reveal the secrets of the bush to enquiring minds. If your family is older, teenagers will enjoy the adventure of walking, horseback and canoeing the Zambezi.
Be sure to call us at an early stage so that we can get acquainted with the interests and priorities of your family, the time of year you want to travel, and the level of comfort and exclusivity you are seeking. We'll send you an initial itinerary to consider, which we can then discuss and fine tune until you're satisfied that every day will be perfect for you.

Namibia offers many of the things that Tanzania and Kenya do for a family safari but with a vital difference, Namibia is largely un-visited by travellers at least compared to Kenya so the experience is a lot more traditional and raw.
