Family Safari

Classic Escapes appreciates the fine balance of a successfully planned specialist family safari. Our clients get to witness their children’s awe and amazement of the African bush with time in between to rest and recuperate while their young ‘cubs’ are safe and stimulated.

Our favourite family safari spots are all malaria-free reserves in South Africa and they offer something for every generation in your clan! 'Big Five' game viewing, adjoining rooms and a variety of child-centred activities make our bespoke family safaris first class! Children can engage in nature friendly programmes such as adventure games, making animal spoor moulds, building campfires, pitching tents and cooking courses in the kitchen! Kwandwe’s Ecca Lodge is the perfect experience for the young and the young at heart - it’s intimate, relaxed and trendy. Morukuru Farmhouse in the Madikwe Game Reserve, set within a safe hundred hectare fenced-in area is a contemporary African homestead. Tswalu, a wonderfully unique setting on the edge of the Southern Kalahari Desert is a private sanctuary and a fascinating place for children to explore.

Whichever destination you choose, Classic Escapes ensure that your family safari is fun, safe, professionally guided and tailored to your family’s needs.

Caroline's Hot Tips

Many lodges have family suites which are perfect for parents travelling with young children.

For multigenerational family bookings reserve a lodge exclusively for your entire family.

Hire a private vehicle for a more exclusive experience.

Namibia and certain regions in South Africa work well for safaris with children because they are Malaria free.

Parents can easily unwind while the children are kept entertained and educated.
