A private family safari designed to let you explore quiet, game rich areas away from the crowds. Tailored specifcally for families with excellent guides, small private safari camps and plenty to keep children (big or small) on the edge of their seats.
Using a comfortable (proper sheets and duvets), but simple tented camp, we have a virtually blank canvas when it comes to planning your family safari. Each safari is planned from scratch with your family and your interests in mind, as well as the time of year you're traveling.
Take a look at this short video to see what to expect in terms of food etc. If you think you'd prefer something more luxurious, you may find this article outlining different types of camp in the Serengeti helpful.
On a family safari we aim to combine high impact game areas where the children can quickly get some big animals under their belt (though with any luck not literally), with lesser known parts of Northern Tanzania’s parks where you'll find great game viewing, but few other tourists.
Tanzania has plenty to offer that coincides with school holidays. For example between July and October (including October half term) we'd aim to get you and your family into the northern Serengeti to see the wildebeest crossing the Mara River for your game fix.
We'd combine this with a spell in the southern reaches of Tarangire or Manyara, or other areas of the Serengeti which you can have almost to yourself once the migration has passed on. It's also well worth while taking in the Ngorongoro Crater, although this comes with a health warning when it comes to (unavoidable) tourist concentrations. The unique geography makes it worth while though.
A safari like this isn’t all about rattling around in a landrover counting animals; Tanzania is full of outstanding places where you and your family can walk including within the Serengeti itself. If you’re feeling really adventurous we can arrange for you to spend the night in a tree-nest watching elephant drink by the light of the moon.
A light mobile safari like this gives you a private vehicle and guide throughout your safari and this ensures that you can take the game viewing - whether by vehicle or on foot - at a pace that suits you and your children.
It means that days can be structured to suit yourselves; leave early in the mornings taking a picnic and returning late in the evening, or have relaxed starts with a good breakfast in camp and leisurely game viewing. The key is that you decide.
If you'd like to discuss some ideas we'd be happy to put together some ideas and prices for you to look at - say the word and we'll get the ball rolling.
