Posted on September 17, 2016, featured in Press

Think an African safari is only for thrill seekers or adults? Think again! Taking your kids on a family safari in Africa is one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences you will ever have. Just imagine how your child’s face will light up as they see their first elephant. Or hear them burst into laughter as they witness monkeys swing from the treetops above.

Don’t wait until your kids have flown the coop before you take an African safari! Bring them with you. You’ll give them a wondrous opportunity to explore everything Africa has to offer and create precious memories that will last a lifetime. Still not convinced? Here are some great reasons why you should take your kids on an African safari.

Experience Breathtaking Wildlife

One of the main reasons to bring your children along on an African safari is to marvel at the “Big Five”—lions, elephants, Cape buffalos, leopards, and rhinoceros. Your kids will get to experience wildlife like they never have before. And you get to enjoy the magic of Africa twice—once from your perspective and also through the eyes of your awe-struck children. Your little ones will also have the opportunity to learn all about these wild animals in their natural habitats, giving your children a wildlife adventure they’ve otherwise only experienced in books and movies.

Enjoy Exceptional Education

Kids are doers—they truly enjoy discovering new things. An African safari trip is the perfect destination, offering up tons of amazing educational opportunities for kids, and giving them the hands-on learning they love. Children will have the chance to soak up all the wonders that is Africa, from wildlife and breathtaking landscapes to cultural diversity, historical sites, and a host of other fun activities that they (and you) will cherish forever.

Encourage a Love of Travel

Another one of the great things about an African safari is the chance to introduce your children to other cultures and a love of travel. Getting kids out of their comfort zone will help foster their natural curiosity about the many wonders of the world. Who knows? When your youngsters grow up, they may even take their kids on an African safari one day.

Spend Quality Time Together as a Family

Last, but certainly not least, the best reason for taking your children on an African safari is spending quality time with family. Getting away on a big family adventure allows them to leave the day-to-day distractions and interact by building and sharing new experiences together. You and your kids will be a-buzz with tales from their Africa adventures for years to come.

Bringing your kids on an African safari will be one of the most fascinating, exciting, and educational family trips you could ever take.
