Our family vacation planning team can help do everything from sourcing the best family-friendly safari camps to recommending the best activities involving kids. When bringing your family on an African trip, safety is the biggest concern and you want to know that every car, driver, plane, accommodation, guide, and meal is as good as it gets. In most cases children under 8 years would not be allowed on a game drive. Game viewing involves hours and hours in the 4x4 vehicle — a typical drive is anywhere from 2 to 4 hours. This is not the zoo, so there are no guarantees if and when animal will show up or what they’ll be doing when you will see them. Once you finally see an animal, it is essential to observe quietly. There are more mature kids, but the excitement and necessity for quiet can usually be a struggle for anyone up to eight years old! However, many lodges do cater for children younger than 8 years and keep the children entertained while the adults and older children go on game drives. Many also offer Junior Safari programmes so that younger children may also feel involved in the safari experience. We are, after all, dealing with the wild, and safety is of paramount importance
