A safari might not be the first activity that comes to mind when planning a vacation with young children, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better experience that exposes your little ones to nature, wildlife and traditional African cultures. It’s an entertaining and educational getaway for the youngest in the family.

A safari is a popular choice for a family holiday, and Africa offers the world’s best wildlife opportunities. An African family safari and beach holiday might be one of the most rewarding you ever spend together. 

Take your loved ones on the greatest adventure: a family safari in the vast and unspoiled wilderness of East Africa. With a highly skilled guide at your side, discover that the African bush truly is the finest family playground.

Seeing the awed and amazed expressions that grace children’s faces while learning the secrets of the African bush is a joy you won’t want to miss. Top lodges and camps all around Africa are noting the importance of having a safari for kids and are now offering specialist junior ranger programs to grow their interest and knowledge through age-appropriate, safe-guided activities.

An African family safari can be an incredibly rewarding and exciting vacation for everybody involved when done in the right way. African family safari tours offer a unique opportunity to expose children to societies and cultures completely different from their own at a young age, which can profoundly impact their upbringing.

We understand it might seem scary to know that your children will be close to potentially dangerous animals, but at Kwezi we believe in exceptional standards of safety while still providing an adventure and experience that will glow for years within the minds of the young. 

Why Safaris are a Great Choice for Families: 

These days there are plenty of choices for family holidays, ranging from the tried and tested beach break within the cosy confines of an all-inclusive resort to something altogether different – African safari vacation packages. They involve rugged adventure, wild animals roaming the African bush, and activities galore to suit the entire family regardless of age or preference. 

There is nothing quite like watching the joy on your child’s face when they spot a cheetah footprint or have a friendly interaction with a giraffe. Priceless moments like these are what make extraordinary family holidays. Take a look at some of the luxury safari holidays or a Kenya Safari that could fit in perfectly with a well-planned luxury trip.
