For familes wanting to give their children a taste of an African safari, but uncomfortable about tangling with malaria (or malarial medication), the northern and north-western areas of South Africa are outstanding. Not only is South Africa incredible value, but as well as an introduction to safari, there is an unending list of things to keep the children busy.
Privately-run game ranches in the Waterberg area offer exciting riding where it's possible to get in amongst the game on horseback, comfortable in the knowledge that there are no big cats here.
Riding aside there are plenty of chances to walk, cycle and more, not to mention happy hours spent mucking around in the pool while parents unwind with a glass or two of something chilled.
The Madikwe Game Reserve in north-western South Africa has excellent wildlife viewing and the lodges are absolutely designed with families in mind with family houses that allow familes with younger children to keep everyone under one roof. The experience is incredibly comfortable, but resolutely authentic.
The Lapalala Wilderness is a huge private reserve in the Waterberg where the only accommodation is a simple tented camp in traditional safari style. This wild, remote area has great wildlife, is scenically breathtaking and offers great walking. And the best thing - you're unlikely to see any other tourists.
