Experience an Africa Safari!
Family Safaris

Family Safaris

Some operators have developed customized family safaris that cater to adults traveling with their children or grandchildren. Itineraries include fun and engaging activities for kids, and often some built-in free time for adults. Families might gather around a campfire listening to tales of Africa, ride horses or elephants through the savannah, or float in a hot air balloon for bird’s-eye views of the famed Great Migration below.

While scenic landscapes and thrilling game drives are part of many African vacations, family safaris also come packed with enriching cultural experiences. You could visit a Maasai boma -- a family village -- and a school where you’ll interact with children from the community. Or, learn to say a few words in Swahili and make beaded bracelets and necklaces with the locals.

Whatever unique encounters you seek, a family safari presents an excellent opportunity for every generation to connect while exploring one of the world's most fascinating destinations. Expert guides lead the way, describing Africa’s expansive history and pointing out big game. The end result is a fun and fulfilling trip for everyone involved.
