Taking young children on safari is quite an undertaking but there are family safari holiday experts in Africa who remove the stress for you. Your holiday in the wilderness turns into a fun adventure where you all become closer to one another.
Malaria Free Holidays
Maybe plan a week or two in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia or Kenya to see the natural environment in its best beautiful state. Malaria-free holidays are popular but most families need to just take the precautions against mosquitoes and no one will get malaria. There are malaria-free destinations and safari lodges in Africa offering unique holidays for the whole family.
Start with Tshukudu Bush Lodge, tucked away on the side of a hill within the remnants of an extinct volcano in the malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Find 5-star accommodation hemmed in by mountains and overlooking a vibrant watering hole with exquisite views. Set off on game drives with midway stops for morning coffee, muffins and sundowner. Expert guides will keep guests captivated by their knowledge of the indigenous flora and fauna. No need to wander far to see a game which congregates at the waterhole.
Taking Teenagers on Safari
Taking teenagers on holiday is quite another story! They will feel completely removed from their city life and may even blame you for ruining their holiday. But give them a day or two and they will completely unwind and become part of the exciting safari experience. It is after all an adventure in the wilds where lions and leopards prowl and elephant herds surround your game viewing vehicle if you are lucky. Take them on bush walks and allow expert rangers to feed them knowledge about the ecosystems, food chains and other fascinating environmental facts. Entice them to try horse riding safaris and relaxing around huge swimming pools afterwards. Many safari lodges in Africa offer outdoor activities such as mountain biking, well-equipped gyms and trekking rhinos.
