Camp Jabulani

Going on one of the best African safaris for families is a unique and enriching experience that just might fit the bill for you if you want to go on a family vacation that is a little more exotic. While many opt to go on a family beach vacation, especially during the summer, an African safari is something you and your family can do at just about any time of the year.

Some of the best African safaris for families are available all year round and are not quite as expensive two. A list of the some of these best African safaris for families, in no particular order, and their most unique and notable features are found below.

Camp Jabulani

If your family wants to go on a safari in South Africa, this might be the safari option for you. Considered one of the best African safaris for families in the area, the camp is one of the more expensive options. It gives the option of either staying in the presidential villa or the normal campsite.

Its suites come with both living and dining areas, as well as viewing decks for those who don’t want to get too close to where the action is.Like in Serengeti Under Canvas,this particular campsite only allows for children 12 years old and above to stay in the main area, though younger children can stay in Zindoga, a small private lodge that provides for activities for younger kids.

They have activities which include survival training, costume parties, arts and crafts, and other activities of the like.

Serengeti Under Canvas

Serengeti Under Canvas

This particular safari camp is found in Tanzania. It’s located in the middle of the Serengeti National Park, with eight tents available in the campsite. They boast of giving the complete bush experience, something that is important for the best African safaris for families. After all, what better way to experience the annual migration of zebras, wildebeest, etc., than to actually be in the middle of it all?

The only downside is that they have a minimum age requirement of 12 years old, meaning you can’t really take your young kids on it – understandable, considering that there is no running water and only buckets and pails provided for your hygiene needs. However, the campsite provides for several attendants and a cook to prepare your food, two considerable pluses.

Richard’s Camp

Richard’s Camp

Richard’s Camp is found in Kenya, also with tents, as in the previously mentioned safari site. This one is found near a game reserve, with zebras, elephants, impalas, tigers, lions, and other herbivores roaming the area. It is a bit advanced, considering that accommodations are also tented, as there are heated showers and flush toilets on site. Families are guaranteed bush walks and even trips to Lake Victoria.

For those with a higher budget, the camp also provides for flights and hot air balloon rides so you and your family can see the migrations of the animals from the top.

Giraffe Manor

Giraffe Manor

The Manor is also found in Kenya and is more of a hotel than a campsite. It got its name from the fact that the area is the home of Rothschild giraffes. For those with young children, this may be the best option, as its activities include giraffe feeding and other child-friendly activities.

Apart from giraffes, bushbucks, birds, and warthogs are also available.
