Private Family Safaris in Kenya

Private Family Safaris in Kenya

Safari fun for nature-lovers and explorers.

Private Family Safaris in Kenya

Wildlife safaris in Kenya are by no means adults-only. Adventurous and flexible families will experience a whole new way to travel. Our guides know how to engage kids and make them be part of the experience. Going on a private safari lets you be more flexible – delay a game drive in favour of more pool time. And then – head to Kenya’s tropical beaches.

Why we love Private Family Safaris in Kenya:

It’s not a classic family holiday, it’s a family adventure, all of you will remember forever. Seeing your first elephant in the wild – a magical moment to bond and reconnect.

Family Self-Drive the Garden Route

Family Self-Drive the Garden Route

Re-discovering the Garden Route.

Family Self-Drive the Garden Route

Whizz through the treetops of the ancient Tsitsikamma forest on zip lines, look for whales on an ocean safari and scramble through the limestone Cango Caves – the Garden Route is filled with adventurous family activities. On a self-drive trip, you’re flexible and can change plans depending on your mood.

Why we love Family Self-Drives at the Garden Route:

Accommodation and activity options along the Garden Route are plenty. Both older and younger children travelling together will keep busy.

Guest Farms in Namibia

Guest Farms in Namibia

Hands-on and active in Namibia.

Guest Farms in Namibia

Hiking up sand dunes, going on a boat trip to a seal colony, and exploring an eery ghost town – Namibia is so diverse, no day is like the other. You can break up long driving distances by staying at small guest farms for several days at a time. The atmosphere is relaxed, and activities are ample.

Why we love Guest Farms in Namibia:

Children are not only welcome but treated like every other grown-up guest. Plus, there is so much to do: horse-riding, snacking from the veggie garden or building a campfire.

Great planning, excellent accommodations, a friendly guide and fantastic impressions. The whole family including our kids (10, 12) fell in love with Namibia and we are already planning our next trip!
