Holiday Type / Luxury Family Safari Holidays

Africa stirs the senses and the soul and ourfamily safari holidays capture the very essence of the bush, where the Big Five and countless other exotic species roam the grassy savannahs and the endless night skies reveal a host of constellations. There are few places that rival the experiences a family can enjoy on the private game reserves of South Africa, watch those first sparks of excitement flit across your little ones’ faces as they spot a family of lions lounging in the sun on an afternoon game drive and listen for the squeal of delight that can only come from watching elephants bathing by the watering hole.

The ecological and cultural diversity of Africa allows you to engage the next generation in the importance of conservation and expand their knowledge of the world through enriching encounters with native communities. They’ll be enraptured by tales of local folklore and in awe at demonstrations of traditional tribal customs they won’t encounter in the classroom.

We design bespoke holidays that meet individual requirements, meaning you’ll experience one of the
best family safari holidaysfor you and your loved ones; from group sizes and age ranges to the length of game drives and accommodation configuration, we take everything into consideration.
