Going on safari is not suitable for children under six years of age, in our opinion. There will be some long hours in the car, and constant animal sightings are not guaranteed. It can be hot and dusty, and the roads may be bumpy, which is tiring even for adults. If you are staying at an exclusive, small scale tented camp, you may find that the evening candlelit dinner is not exactly child friendly.
Sometimes, the best idea is to remain in one and the same spot for an hour or more, waiting quietly in the car until the cheetah goes hunting, or until the wildebeest cross the river. Wildlife watching takes patience. If you want to bring your small children on safari, please get in touch with us so that we can help to design a child-friendly itinerary.
