Family Safaris South Africa
South Africa is the ideal destination for families with children of all ages. It is especially appealing for families with younger children as South Africa can also offer Malaria Free Safaris like the Eastern Cape and Madikwe regions. Most areas are low risk areas and the famous Kruger Reserves is wonderful for slightly older children from 6 years +.
Family friendly safari lodges can range from luxury 5 star deluxe to great value 3 and 4 star options. Most of our preferred lodges for a family safari in South Africa are in private game reserves and some share open borders with National Game Parks ensuring good quality and quantity Big 5 wildlife viewing. Great infrastructure on most of South Africa’s road means you can rent a car to save costs especially in the more developed city areas like Cape Town and along the Garden Route. Alternatively if you prefer we can include guided city trips with family specialist guides.
Cape Town and the Garden Route have plenty on offer for families with a taste for adventure. Kwa Zulu Natal enjoys a warmer tropical climate and is a good choice for a family holiday in the cooler winter month between June and August when families still prefer a shorter safari and beach option. Mozambique is the ideal African style beach break for the more adventurous family seeking a true African experience and there is direct flights to the island from Kruger Safari Park. For Families that prefer a more resort beach break at the end of their safari we can also include a stay at one of the Indian Ocean Islands like Mauritius that is easily combinable with a flight from Johannesburg South Africa.
