A thoughtfully curated children's programme transforms your safari into an exceptional family vacation where kids are captivated by the fun on offer, lifelong memories are made and young minds flourish.
Children’s safari programmes are a wonderful addition to a family bush vacation, sparking a lifelong love of wildlife and the African bush in the kids who participate.
Each programme is geared to really engage and amuse the young safari traveller. They are packed with interactive activities and outdoor adventures carried out in the care of friendly qualified rangers, trackers, cooks and childminders, who understand the varying attention spans and energy levels of their curious young guests. Activities vary to make the most of what is offered in your location and to cater to the ages of the children participating to ensure they are memorable, engaging and age-appropriate.
A few favourite kids’ safari programme activities? Walking with local guides, learning all about the bush and animals around you. Learning how to recognize each animal’s spoor and tracking wildlife (in some locations tracking them with sniffer dogs). Learning how to make bows and arrows or light a fire with sticks. Visiting local communities for a football game, or to take part in tribal dancing, singing and drumming, or learning how to bead or make traditional clay pots. Baking teatime favourites in the camp kitchen. And, to end the day, learning about the Milky Way with guided star-gazing expeditions, and sharing bush tales around the campfire.
