sirikoi_giraffe_3_hsmy7w Real encounters with the locals on a luxury family safari

Whether you choose to visit Kenya, Uganda, or Rwanda, a luxury family safari offers an opportunity for incredible wildlife sightings and fascinating cultural encounters that your children will remember for years to come.   

Our family-friendly safari vacations are personally designed by our Luxury Travel Specialists and are tailored to your family’s specific requirements. This includes, if you wish, combining your safari with beach time on one of Africa's pristine coasts and finding the most suitable family-friendly safari lodges and camps. 

 Whether you dream of viewing leopards, lions, black rhino and elephants in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater or spotting the ‘big five’ in South Africa’s Kwandwe Game Reserve, we guarantee that your family will have an unforgettable safari experience.   

South Africa and Namibia are both great options for a family safari due to the minimal time difference which helps get your vacation off to a more energetic start. South Africa is also a great choice for families who want a malaria-free safari destination as there’s no risk of malaria throughout most of the country. 

Kruger National Park does have a low malaria risk, however Madikwe and Kwandwe Game Reserves are malaria free. Namibia’s Etosha National Park has a very low risk of malaria during the rainy months of November to June, plus during the dry months of July to September it's malaria free which means that you can avoid taking anti-malaria medication and mosquito bites become less of a worry.
