Children on Safari


Take the kids along on safari too

Kids need not make your dream holiday difficult. We know that some lodges and hotel do not accept young children on safari, but there are plenty that do. We have selected a handful for you that promise to ensure that the whole family gets enjoys an African Safari. At many of these properties, your kids will get to experience some of the features below:

  • Big 5 safaris and game drives (in closed vehicles)
  • Bush walks with wildlife for the whole family
  • Junior ranger training, butterfly/fish/insect catch and release, and more
  • Babysitting/ child minder services
  • Children's clubs to keep kids busy and having fun
  • Swimming pools and/or beaches
  • Arts, crafts and games
  • Family rooms with twin beds, couches and cots

At Rhino Africa we specialise in luxury safari travel. Unfortunately many luxury lodges frown upon children and won't accept those under 16 years of age. There are, however, many lodges that encourage families to go on safari and there are many that even have special children's clubs and activities available, making your family holiday an easier and more pleasant experience.

We have selected a number of top-class safari lodges that cater well for families and will keep your children entertained throughout your stay. For the times when you are in the city, we have handpicked a few hotels that will gladly welcome your kids.

NB: Our consultants can answer any question about going on a family adventure that your might have. Don't delay - contact us to plan your tailor-made trip!
