|"The one thing that really struck us was how
brilliant you all were with the children. They were
enthralled by the whole experience and it was not just
the watching. It was the walking, the smelling, the
prodding, the tasting, the poking, the stroking, the
throwing, the splashing and sploshing, the climbing,
the driving, the fishing, the chasing, the drawing,
the collecting. They were allowed to be free and it
was such joy to see." Guest comment
A safari is great fun for adventurers of all ages. As one
of our guests wrote after her safari, “We and our
kids felt like kindred spirits.” We have planned and
guided numerous family safaris, many of which have catered
to three or more generations, and there is no doubt at all
that this is an experience that levels the playing field,
whether you are 80 or five! There is nothing quite like
being with children when they first glimpse a wild animal
- the amazement is so vivid and the
joy so pure. Naturally we will plan your
safari keeping in mind factors such as the ages and
interests of your children, your expectations and what you
(and they) hope to experience on your visit to Africa.
Lara have brought up their
two children Jamey and Amelia in
Kenya. Having children of our own we understand that there
are certain elements that are essential to making a multi-generation
safari a success, and we are more than happy to tailor each
day so that the rhythm works for everyone in your group.
We are often asked what the right age is to
bring your family on safari. It is a tough question to answer.
Many of the family safaris we have led have been with children
aged five and over, though we have occasionally had younger
children on very successful safaris. The most important
thing to remember is that we can cater to your family's
needs, and will do whatever we can to make your safari unforgettable.
