Family safari holidays

Exhilarating and immersive safari holidays for families

In a world dominated by social media, opportunities to spend time with your children, without the lure of a screen, are like gold dust.

Here at Natural High Safaris, we organise family-friendly safari holidays where creating enduring memories and unforgettable experiences are paramount. Offering trips to some of the world’s most wild and wonderful places—from Africa to the Arctic—we put discovery and adventure ahead of cheap thrills and novelty.

For us, family holidays have long been about piling into a Land Rover or a small bush plane and heading off to explore faraway wildlands. The years of journeying through the wild with our children have informed the family safaris we create for our clients today.

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE THRILL OF REMOTE LOCATIONS, WILDLIFE AND STAR-FILLED NIGHTS AND TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO UNPLUG AND REMEMBER WHAT THE WORDS “SHARE” AND “LIKE” REALLY MEAN.

What makes a perfect family safari

First-class family-friendly safaris rely on knowledgeable, experienced guides, who can offer the flexibility required to make the most of your game viewing. Our family safari guides will ensure that everything runs like clockwork, but if anything unexpected comes up, they have the expertise to adapt to the demands of the environment.

The beauty of wildlife is its unpredictability. If you’re lucky enough to witness a lion on the hunt, your family will be eager to see the chase unfold. Imagine your disappointment if strict time restrictions leave you hurried back to camp before an extraordinary event takes place. Our guides are as passionate about wildlife as you are, and will always prioritise you and your family’s safari experience.

Outstanding customer service well above the call of duty.

"Natural High arranged a trip to remember ...accommodation first class, transportation on very long road trips was excellent. Spotless . air conditioning .. food and water. Rhino and Tiger sightings to die for.. local agents left nothing to chance ... we felt in the safest hands ... then when we off grid the virus struck... Natural High and their local Agent Banyan took total control and got us from the back of beyond to UK in very worrying and uncertain times. All without us being able to do anything at our end ...outstanding attention to detail. Worth every penny."

Personal service and excellent organisation

"This was our first holiday to be organised by Natural High. We made the enquiry on New Year’s Eve for a departure in February and within a few days they had produced a wonderful-sounding itinerary in Costa Rica. There were helpful notes for packing as they seem to have someone there who has been to any chosen destination. We did do some groundwork for flights but left it to Dial-a-Flight who were also most efficient. We visited the office as it is very local to home and everyone there was cheerful and interested in our upcoming trip. We were presented with a leather file which turned out to be the most useful item en-route for all our paperwork ..... and it smelled lovely!
The holiday was one of our best ever. Not just because we saw a plethora of wildlife, but because there was always someone waiting to whisk us to another destination, be it to the airport, from the airport or a boat to a lodge etc. And they did it with great charm and humour and were always very knowledgeable about any queries we had.
For the last 8 days we had a driver/guide who was just outstanding. He was very familiar with the 3 remaining lodges where we stayed and his rapport with the other staff and guides helped to ensure that we were really well looked after. He was a skilled naturalist, had a great sense of humour and was always putting our welfare first - he made a wonderful companion for the trip.
All of the above meant that it was a really relaxing holiday so that we could maximise our time looking at the flora and fauna of Costa Rica.
We would highly recommend Natural High ...... where next?!"

Natural High nailed it again

"Sledding in Sweden was our second wonderful holiday with Natural High. From the moment you speak to them to when you get home the service and attention to detail is wonderful.
Everything is so well planned and organised that you can just sit back and really enjoy your holiday. We couldn’t recommend husky sledding in the north of Sweden more. We all agreed it was one of the best family holidays ever."

Why you can trust us with your family safari

The team at Natural High Safaris share an abiding love of wildlife and the wilderness. As carefree youngsters, we all travelled to remote corners of the globe to immerse ourselves in the natural world, living everywhere from Africa to the Arctic. When we had children of our own, we wanted more than anything to pass this passion onto them. 

In addition to letting our kids explore these remarkable places, we learned how best to keep them safe. Travelling with our own children has given us extensive first-hand experience of what does and doesn’t work with kids of all ages. It has also shown us the importance of strong support and a safe pair of hands while venturing into the most remote parts of the planet. These lessons inform every element of what we do, and why you can trust Natural High to provide safe and spectacular family safari holidays.
