African Family Safari with Taste Of Africa


A family safari vacation binds you together in shared gratitude and wonder. No matter how old you are, these delightful memories will last a lifetime but also bond families together for generations to come by retelling stories from positive experiences and also those from challenging times.


Children love Africa, and Africa loves them. Parents and grandparents sharing African wildlife and cultural vacation with their generational children is an enriching experience. You will borrow their clear vision and enthusiasm for new wonders. They will learn and grow in firsthand contact with the fabulous creatures, places, and people they have only seen in pictures.



Of course, there are concerns to overcome which Taste Of Africa can help you unravel. The first consideration is health. With preliminary shots guidance, improved COVID 19 protocols recommendation, and mosquito netting accommodation, there is no need to worry other than common sense aptitude. Warm clothes for early morning and evening at altitude are also a consideration. You need to be sure of convenient and comfortable transport for older and younger family members, and for suitable accommodation. Depending on your budget bracket, this may be at large, popular tourist spots or more secluded locations. A few family camps and lodges now offer family tents or suites, and fully staffed private villas and bush houses are also available.



It is essential to choose somewhere where food can be tailored to the needs of your family, and Taste Of Africa’s recommendation will be specially based on your custom safari preference and interest at all times. Some venues serve special children’s menus before adult dining times. Some lodgings provide child-minding facilities and others have special activities for like-minded children. Careful choice of guides with varied activities makes all the difference.


A knowledgeable guide who loves his subject will enthuse children who already have an instinctive yearning towards the natural world, a desire to learn and delight in its sights, sounds, smells, and textures.


Watching a proud Maasai warrior guide teaching a youngster to make a bow and arrow or even crack how to set alight fire, or his gap-toothed wife threading beads with a little girl, or dancing and singing with exuberant joy, joining in a game of Bao, or having a lesson in Swahili or Maa, your face will ache with smiling.

In helping to plan your household trip to Africa, Taste Of Africa will take all these things into account, and many more you may have overlooked. There is no problem with older children on adventure travels in Africa. For safety reasons, children less than 15 years old may not trek Kilimanjaro though 7-year olds and 80 plus years old have summited to Uhuru peak. Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda chimpanzee safaris are off-limits to children under 12 years.
