Private Family Vacations
We are specialists in organizing a family safaris. A standard component of our family-friendly safari itineraries include incorporating lodges that accommodate triples where there is just one child or camps/lodges that offer interconnecting rooms / family suites / family tents where there are two or more children. We also include cultural activity programs such as visiting a local village, which provides a very interesting learning and discovering opportunity to adults and children alike. However, a particularly enlightening and unforgettable experience for the younger members of the family is to visit a local Tanzanian school, should they choose, to interact with children of their own age, giving them an enriching learning and discovery opportunity and a life-changing experience.
