Days spent spotting wild animals in awe-inspiring, remote landscapes. Dinner cooked on an open fire beneath the stars. Bedtime stories accompanied by lions roaring in the distance. On a family safari holiday, everyday life takes an extraordinary turn.

Forget staring at screens all day, on safari, the kids will feel like they’ve stepped into a film set. Whether that’s running down huge dunes in Namibia, following the zebra migration in the Kalahari in Botswana, or watching elephants in Tanzania.
 
Adventures like this aren’t about spoiling children. They’re about broadening their horizons, with truly liberating experiences that give them plenty of chances to get their hands dirty. And for parents, there are few better ways to spend quality time together as a family. All in outstanding places far beyond the tourist trail.
