Are you thinking about taking your family overseas for a special family holiday in Africa? If you have healthy kids with a vest for life and adventure and a healthy budget, we recommend a Singita luxury safari because they offer some of the best activities for children of all ages.
Our top tips for high end family holidays are:
Singita South Africa for Easter or Christmas
There are five Singita lodges in two special parts of South Africa, both of which are known for their exquisite beauty and large concentration of wildlife.
Singita Sabi Sand offers rare solitude and the ultimate in safari luxury on prime game viewing land recognised globally for its diversity and formidable concentration of big game and frequent leopard sightings. Guests can choose between three unfenced lodges, infused with the glamour and elegance of Singita. Ebony Lodge, Boulders Lodge and Castleton Camp.
Singita Kruger National Park is situated where two rivers meet, in an exclusive game-rich 33 000-acre concession in the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Boasting the highest concentration of wildlife in the entire park, including the ‘Big 5’, the area is also known for its majestic Mountain Pride of lions and unique Euphorbia trees. The lodges here are Lebombo Lodge and Sweni Lodge.
Which Lodge would suit you best?
Singita Ebony and Singita Boulders have family suites ideal for younger children. The Lewis Suites at Singita Ebony are perfect for families with teenagers. Singita Castleton is ideal for larger family groups travelling.
