African Family Safaris

 

Family Safaris in Africa - Fun for everyone in the family - www.epicafricansafaris.com

 

The most popular family safari destination is probably South Africa, especially for families with young children. The roads are excellent which means you can rent your own car and thus set your own schedule. Flexibility is key when you have little children. You can make stops when you want, return to your hotel when they tire and plan the length of your own drives around the wildlife parks.

South Africa also has plenty of smaller, private wildlife parks where you can see a lot of animals in a short amount of time. These private game parks often have comfortable accommodations with swimming pools and buffet lunches and dinners. The Garden Route and Eastern Cape in South Africa is filled with beaches and game parks in close-proximity, a winning combination with children on a family safari.

Finally, South Africa is home to several malaria-free game parks, so the children don't have to take malaria pills and you don't have to worry every time a mosquito comes along. The country also boasts some of the best doctors and hospitals on the continent.

Kenya is also a great family safari destination because you can combine a beach holiday in Mombasa with a night or so at the Tsavo National Park which is just an hour's drive away.

Tanzania probably offers the best safari experience in Africa, but the infrastructure isn't quite as good as that in Kenya unless you stick to the "Northern Circuit" which includes the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Combining a safari with the beaches of Zanzibar makes for a great family vacation.

Namibia has malaria-free areas, a large coastline, fun sand dunes and good roads. But, the distance between places of interest is significant. If you have children who don't mind long drives, then Namibia would make a wonderful family destination.

If money is less of an issue, Botswana is a great family safari destination a since many of the safaris offered are fly-in. Make sure your children are old enough to appreciate this vacation; not just because it will cost you more than other destinations, but also many safaris include traditional canoe rides through the delta region, and this could be dangerous with small children.

 

 

Family Safaris in Africa - Fun for everyone in the family - www.epicafricansafaris.comMany safari tours have age restrictions on children, which is why an independently booked and planned family safari is usually a better option for those traveling with children under 12. Many tour operators feel it's unsafe for small children to be sitting in the back of an open safari vehicle while viewing wildlife. Children are also more prone to sunburn, falling ill or general boredom on longer game drives. Also, when you view wildlife it's important to keep quiet and that's sometimes difficult to enforce with a small child.

Certain lodges and safari camps also have age limits. Wild animals roam in close proximity to camps and there's a real risk to your toddler if s/he decides to leave the tent on their own. Some lodges may not have suitable dining options for small children or have food available throughout the day.

 Here are some tips to help keep your little ones focused on  game drives:

•     Buy them a camera.
•     Let them use binoculars.
•     Award points or a prizes for spotting birds, insects, wildlife.
•     Give them a bird or animal checklist to mark off what they see (every wildlife park will have these available).
•     Stay in a family-oriented lodge that offers special drives for children or baby-sitting options so you can leave them at the lodge.
