What does safari mean to you?

Our family travel expert, Eleanor describes what she thinks of when thinking about a safari.

"The word safari conjures images of vast savannahs, roaming animals and an out of Africa-esque glamour that has drawn visitors to experience the true sense of wildness for generations. Africa has always exerted an incredible pull for me, mostly fuelled by an intense desire as a child to see elephants, giraffes and in particular cheetahs in the wild.

Whilst it is of course the animals which are very much the primary draw for African adventurers, the landscapes, friendly people, ancient culture, beautiful beaches and delicious foods are certainly not to be overlooked! A favourite African food of mine being the traditional South African braai which is essentially cooking all manner of meats, treats and vegetables on a grill over an open fire and under the endless African sky."

We offer a variety of family holidays to this most special of continents, with different focuses depending on the sort of thing you are after.

Discover the delights of Tanzania

Tanzania is perfect for those on a first-time trip to Africa. From game drives, boat safaris and canoeing to setting up camera traps to spot elusive wildlife, tracking animals on foot and even staying a night in a traditional Maasai dwelling, there really is something for everyone in your family. Both of our trips can be finished off with a well-deserved rest on the beaches of the exotic Spice Island of Zanzibar where you can do as much or as little as you'd like.

Choose betwen Swahili Coast & Safari or Serengeti Family Safari.

Head to Botswana on a family safari adventure

Botswana is something of the holy grail of safari destinations, with exclusive lodges, comfortable tenting camps and even some exciting wild camping forming the bases for your trip. Real highlights include camping in the Okavango Delta, learning bush trekking skills in Chobe, game drives in search of leopards and wild dogs and experiencing the awe-inspiring might of Victoria Falls.

Namibia - great for a varied family adventure

The beautiful wilderness of Namibia is a place of contrasts; from exploring the remote Skeleton Coast, to scaling the vast red dunes of Sossusvlei and enjoying the wildlife of Etosha National Park. Our comfortable camping trip in Namibia visits a cheetah sanctuary, explores ancient rock art at Twyfelfontein and goes dolphin and seal watching around Swakopmund.

South African safari

The enormous and diverse country of South Africa must surely be on the bucket list of any family in search of a safari holiday. From the renowned Kruger to the lesser visited Hluhluwe-iMfolozi, South Africa's parks are stunning landscapes of savannah and bush absolutely bursting with some of the most iconic and otherwise elusive species such as wild dogs and black rhino. For an utter contrast, head to the 'Mother City' of Cape Town which is a cosmopolitan and vibrant city sitting underneath the mighty Table Mountain.
