4 Tips for Planning a Meaningful Safari with Kids

Updated: Aug 26, 2020

Most families think of an African safari as a transformational bucket-list adventure. But many don’t realize how many kinds of safaris choices there are. The world’s second largest continent is incredibly diverse with different landscapes, culture, languages, wildlife and even available activities. With a little research, you can find the perfect fit for your family – a tour that is both exciting and relaxing, while offering learning experiences for the entire family.

Here are four tips to keep in mind:

Tip 1: Figure on a minimum of two weeks. An African safari is not an experience you want to rush. Just getting to many African countries from the United States can require a long journey with many connecting flights. You’ll want to give your body time to adjust and allow yourself to fully experience this incredible place, which may mean taking long road trips outside of a capital city to your safari destination.
