Family Travel in Southern Africa

Southern Africa is a great place to travel with kids. Our 3 children have travelled with us in southern Africa every couple of years since they were babies. They have all fallen in love with southern Africa, and with travel, and we all so treasure our wonderful family memories.

Why is southern Africa the perfect destination for travelling with kids of any age?

  • In southern Africa all the comforts of home are never too far away.
  • Especially if travelling in South Africa, minimum medication or vaccinations are required.

  • Our kids get on better, and we all relax and fully enjoy each others' company when travelling in Africa.

Magical experiences

  • Holidays in Africa are full of the most memorable experiences that will stay with your kids forever.
  • Our kids keep journals of each trip and love coming home, getting out their journals, and re-living their amazing experiences.
  • Seeing new places, meeting new people, experiencing new things - these experiences are the most valuable learnings your children can ever get and Africa offers this all in spades.
  • See our Activities for children in Southern Africa for lots of ideas.
Self drive family travel in Southern Africa

  • We particularly enjoy self drive travel with our family. We love:
    • the freedom and independence that comes with choosing our own travel pace and rhythm,
    • the challenges of finding animals and birds when in game reserves,
    • being in control of deciding when to stop and really take in those special moments.

Family itineraries

We customise all of our itineraries, packages and tours to suit your family's needs. We have based these tours on a family of four (two adults and two children under the age of 12) but of course will tailor them to exactly what you need! The tours are based on a family-friendly pace, family-friendly accommodation and include a range of fun and exciting family-friendly day tours and activities.
