For any child who loves animals, any youngster who is fascinated by Animal Planet or thrilled by The Lion King, Africa is the one destination that fulfills their wildest dreams. For many grown-ups too, safaris, savannahs, mountains and jungles are the stuff of tall tales and legendary adventures. Taking your kids on safari will instill in them a sense of wonder and appreciation for nature and teach them to love, respect and care for our environment.
This guide will focus on two of the most accessible and spectacular wildlife parks in southern Africa: South Africa’s Kruger National Park and Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, as well as the South African resort town of Cape Town and surrounds. Their accessibility and the range of accommodation and tour options make them the most suited to family travel.
