African Safari Tours Are Perfect for Families
Of all the destinations in the world, Tanzania offers some of the best family safari vacations. Where else can you see the beloved creatures that inspired a dozen Disney movies, or pack healthy fun in the great outdoors into once-in-a-lifetime, child-friendly itineraries? There is nothing quite as wonderful as witnessing your child’s reaction to spotting their first majestic cheetah or wallowing hippo. Whether you’re visiting chimpanzees in Mahale Mountains National Park or marvelling at The Great Migration of wildebeest in Serengeti National Park, the guarantee we offer is that the adults will be just as amazed as the children!
Family safari holidays in Tanzania offer a range of adventure activities and plenty of attractions to please everyone. A family safari is a great way to expose your kids to nature and wildlife, fostering their love and amazement for animals and the great outdoors. As all our Tanzania safaris are tailor-made to your family’s needs, we will create a bespoke itinerary jam-packed with things to keep everyone in the family happy. Children view the world with so much wonder that we often find that family safaris have a greater sense of amazement than other kinds of trips. Safaris can also become outdoor classrooms for children where they can learn about African wildlife in a fun and interactive way. From following and reading animal tracks to identifying dung, your little ones will learn about the wonders of nature outside the confines of a classroom. Teachable moments are everywhere on an African safari — meaning that your children will have a true appreciation for the value of Africa’s unique wildlife and ecosystem, as well as how to protect it for future generations. One of the best way to experience Tanzania is to include one (or several) of our Dotcom Safaris; these include meeting the local people, learning about their culture and their way of live, and even trying out their hunting methods, pottery, and so much more.
Your children will also have the unique opportunity to meet and learn about the people of Tanzania. Traveling with your kids to Africa will open their eyes to the world, teaching them to celebrate differences and become citizens of the world. Dotcom Safaris curates itineraries that invite families to connect with local communities, visit tribes and get involved in philanthropic efforts, an invaluable experience for kids.
The variety and novelty of a family safari in Tanzania also provides a rich setting for you to reconnect with each other through sharing memorable experiences. And, as all aspects of your trip are taken care of – you don’t have to worry about a thing and can free yourself from your phone and wallet to focus on taking in the experience with the people you love most in the world. The most difficult decision will be what to have to drink when your game drive pauses to enjoy the setting African sun!
From Africa’s diverse cultures to its legendary wildlife, a family safari in Tanzania is one of the most exciting and eye-opening travel experiences a child can have. With a few of Africa’s safari lodges now catering specifically for families in terms of accommodation and activities, it is now easier than ever to introduce your child to Africa!
