Africa travel for families
Action-packed adventure awaits
Considering a family holiday in Africa?
Africa is the ultimate family holiday destination. It’s rich with incredible landscapes, from vast savannah plains and soaring mountains to thick jungles, enormous lakes and exotic spice islands.
And then, of course, there are the animals.
Viewing Africa’s extraordinary animals in the wild is a life-enhancing – life-changing – experience, and to share it with your children is a profound and unforgettable privilege. The looks on their faces when they spot their first lion or elephant will stay with you forever.
A holiday to Africa will also introduce your kids to different and fascinating cultures, and instil in them a sense of wonder and respect for the natural world.
And for families who love adventure and the great outdoors, there are very few places to rival Africa.
Game drives are incredible experiences, but there are so many more ways to explore the land than the traditional 4×4 – from quad biking, hot-air ballooning, mountain biking and microlighting, to canoeing, boating and walking safaris.
And wildlife experiences are just one of the brushstrokes on the beautiful canvas that is Africa. The masterpiece is made up of so much more than “just” safaris, with cultures to discover, cities to explore and chilling out to be enjoyed on heavenly beaches and tropical islands.
Your kids will never forget the most exciting and rewarding holiday of their lives.
Safari with the kids
A family holiday to Africa just wouldn’t be complete without going on safari. This is a mind-blowing experience at any time, but to be able to introduce your children to the wonders of Africa is something you’ll never forget. Sharing their joy as they spot their first giraffe in the wild.
Seeing their awe-struck faces as they hear a lion roar. Watching them play with local children. Enjoying a bush picnic with them, your guides… and literally no one else for thousands of miles. There’s simply nothing like it.
No holiday will ever live up to a safari with your children.Read more
After an exhilarating safari, there’s nothing better than unwinding and spending some time as a family on a dreamy tropical beach.
And while the word “beach” might not immediately spring to mind when you think of Africa, it’s actually home to an amazing variety of gorgeous beaches and tropical island, all catering for family getaways and offering year-round fun in the sun.
From the palm-fringed shores of Mozambique to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar, the warm-water, white-sand beaches of Africa will leave you spoilt for choice.
