Tanzania Family Safari

They’ve seen the movie, they know the soundtrack, now it’s time to travel to Africa and introduce your kids to the real thing on a Tanzania family safari.

Tanzania is home to some of Africa’s best known wildlife reserves; classic Big 5 safari destinations including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater where you’re guaranteed unforgettable sightings of wild animals (always a hit with kids!). What’s more, Tanzania’s long tropical coastline and the beaches and coral reefs of Zanzibar make this East Africa country a top choice for a family safari and beach break.

Taking children on safari can be tricky. Many lodges have an age restriction for game drives, and finding activities that will keep all members of the family happy is always a challenge. We’ve taken the hassle out of your holiday planning by putting together Tanzania family safaris that not only include phenomenal game viewing but other great activities too such as mountain biking, camping in Africa’s greatest wilderness – the Serengeti – playing soccer with the local kids, and visiting a school to exchange ideas and make new friends.

As for our accommodation, we’ve carefully selected safari lodges and tented camps that specialise in families: trained staff, plenty to do, child-friendly menus, and sporting and cultural exchanges. To avoid long distances and grumpy kids on bumpy roads, our Tanzania safaris fly you between these lodges and camps – each set in magnificent locations in Tanzania’s top reserves.

Browse our range of Tanzania family safaris and tours, and if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for contact one of our Africa Safari Experts and they’ll tailor-make an itinerary that will ensure everyone has an unbelievable time from dad the birding fanatic to lion-obsessed junior.
