Both Southern and East Africa are excellent safari destinations for a family. In Southern Africa, South Africa is the most popular country for families travelling with young children. South Africa offers a good mix of safari as well as city and beach destinations. A safari to the Malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve combined with a stay in Cape Town and the Cape Winelands is an excellent itinerary for a family wanting to get the best out of their South Africa holiday.
The Kruger National Park which offers the ultimate safari experience in South Africa also has a large number of lodges that are family friendly.
Kenya in East Africa is arguably the finest family safari destination in Africa. Kenya does not offer the diversity of places that you get in South Africa, however it is an amazing safari destination and the most child friendly safari destination in Africa. Exceptional wildlife viewing, beautiful beaches and the rich Maasai culture make Kenya a fantastic option for a family safari.
