A Family Safari in Africa; the Game Viewing

Many people choose a family safari holiday to be close to Africa’s greatest wildlife, and whilst game drives are still common, the introduction of the luxury safari allow us to really get up close to the animals in many wonderful ways. On a safari in Africa today, guests can enjoying walking safaris in the very heart of the bush, boating safaris, canoeing safaris, elephant back safaris, hot air balloon rides, Masai cultural visits, quad biking and micro light flights. All of these amazing game viewing activities bring new perspectives, and with something new around every corner, you never really know what you are going to see next. One of the most luxurious game viewing experiences available to you is seeing the great wildebeest migration. This world famous natural event occurs every year between the Masai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania. On a family safari in these countries you can witness the herds on the move for fresh grazing, and even stay close to them with a mobile safari camp. Not only does this event guarantee sightings of zebra, wildebeest ad gazelle, hungry predators like lion and hyena are always following them closely to single out the weak.

The Accommodation

Safari accommodation is nothing quite like you imagined. It doesn’t involve roughing it in tents in the middle of nowhere; it involves superior lodges and intimate camps, where style and comfort comes hand in hand. If you’re travelling as a large family you can request a luxurious lodge complete with double bedrooms, en suite bathrooms and your own private living room, and many also have their own private plunge pool and decking area. If you’d prefer something more rustic and remote, there are many safari camps that can offer you an authentic safari experience, without compromising on the comfort and luxury. A family safari also comes with expert guides, friendly staff and superb chefs, who will be there to make your safari trip every bit perfect.

Combinations for a Family Safari

Alongside wildlife watching in Africa, you can choose to take a safari and combine it with a sightseeing trip or a beach vacation on one of the Indian Ocean islands. South Africa is a superb destination for a combination safari as it offers the chance to add a trip to the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town or a self-drive tour of the Garden Route stretch. If you wish to combine a relaxing beach stay within your safari, there are a number of paradise islands to choose from including the Seychelles, Mauritius, Mozambique, Zanzibar or the Kenya Coast. Whether you simply want to unwind with a book, treat yourself to a spa treatment or get stuck in with some water sports, this is the ideal way to end luxury safaris in Africa.
