If you are planning a family safari, there are a few important things to keep in mind in order to ensure that every member of your family gets the most out of your trip. Different safari lodges have their own set of rules as far as children are concerned, so it is really important that you choose the right lodge for your family.

We have an in-house compiled list of family-friendly lodges to set you off in the right direction. Many of these lodges offer brilliant children’s activity programs for any child who is too young for proper game drives. Featuring a whole host of fun-filled activities enjoyed at the lodge itself or its vicinity and other lodges will even offer babysitting services to look after your little ones while you are out on safari or when you just need a good rest.
