African Family Holidays

A land of adventure and incredible experiences, Africa is the ideal destination for families wanting something different. To us, Africa has everything you could want in a holiday: adventure, luxury lodges, stunning scenery and beautiful beaches. Awe-inspiringly powerful, it makes for a truly memorable holiday. With such diversity there is something for everybody: spend a week in the bush amongst the animals, and finish by basking in the sun by the Indian Ocean. Africa is full of wonderful safari lodges and fantastic beach lodges. We have been lucky enough to travel to Africa from a very young age and as children it was always our favourite holiday. For parents wanting to do something more entertaining than just lying on the beach then this is the answer. The safari guides are incredibly knowledgeable and help bring the bush alive and stimulate the imagination. A safari makes a great bonding experience for parents and children and learning about the bush will enthral adults and children alike.
