Malaria-Free Safaris >

South Africa
South Africa has many family-friendly camps, several with special childcare facilities for toddlers. We recommend the Kruger National Park and malaria-free parks such as Madikwe Game Reserve, Waterberg area, Tswalu Kalahari and the parks in the East Campe, notably Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, Cape Town and the Garden Route.

Malaria-free Safaris
Most of South Africa is malaria-free, unfortunately Kruger National Park and the Lowveld are not. We have compiled some safaris in malaria-free areas.

Most of our camps in the Okavango Delta welcome children aged six and older.

Family Rooms
Reduced rates usually apply to children between the ages of six and sixteen, sleeping with their parents in a family room or triple room. Normal rates apply if a separate room is occupied, or if children are older than sixteen. Book family rooms early to ensure your children profit from these reduced rates.

Private Vehicle
Families with children aged 12 or younger must hire a vehicle for their own private use at extra cost. A guide accompanies the family and adapts the game drive to suit the family’s requirements. Book early as there is usually only one additional vehicle for families per camp.

Namibia can be discovered as a family on a self-drive safari or a fly-in safari basis – or a combination of the two. Self-drivers should be aware of the time taken to cover distances; it usually takes about four hours to travel from one camp to another, and the journey should be broken for 2-3 days at a time.

Family Rooms
Several camps offer family rooms where children can spend the night at reduced rates. Make a reservation as early as possible!

Family activities could include the lodge's swimming pool, dune climbing in Sossusvlei, walking at Wolwedans, quad biking in Swakopmund, walking in the Erongo Mountains, visiting rock paintings at Twyvelfontein, searching for rhino in Damaraland or visiting a Himba village.

Malaria-free Safaris
Most of Nambia is malaria-free, only the Caprivi area must be considered as malaria area > Travel Ideas for malaria-free safaris

Children aged six and older are welcome at most camps.

We offer safaris in Tanzania in comfortable, as-new 4x4 vehicles for up to six people. This means that families can travel privately and therefore determine most of the day’s events themselves. A sympathetic guide will take good care of your family, and dedicates himself entirely to your wellbeing.

A nice swimming pool, a visit to a Maasai village or local school adds variety to a safari.

A safari in Tanzania can easily be combined with a beach holiday. Zanzibar is accessible by light aircraft from Arusha in little over an hour. Many hotels and resorts in Zanzibar offer entertainment for the whole family.

Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi
Children aged six and older are welcome at most camps.

There are camps in the area around Victoria Falls, Livingstone and in the Chobe region that welcome children of all ages.

In addition to the obligatory boat trips on the Chobe and Zambezi, there’s a myriad of activities for children and the young at heart, including river rafting on the Zambezi, rhino walks in the Mosi-Oa-Tunja National Park, helicopter flights or microlight flights over the waterfalls, and to round it all off, a bungee jump from the border bridge!

Beach holidays don’t necessarily mean a visit to the seaside – and because the lake is 600 km long, you won’t even notice the difference! A visit to Zambia can be combined with beach & bathe on Lake Malawi – an interesting combination.
