Family Safaris in Africa


Take your tribe out to Africa - nature's playground! We offer family friendly departures on a handful of our Southern Africa camping safaris, which are suitable for parents travelling with children and teens aged 6 to 17. Camping under star-filled African skies, hearing the roar of a lion at night and going in search of the Big Five on safari in some of Africa's finest national parks is magical for all the family.


Our family friendly safaris are 'hands on' and require full participation - putting up your own tents, helping with the cooking and cleaning up is all part of the experience. These action packed adventures are guaranteed to keep your little monkeys entertained, and travelling with On The Go Tours, we'll take care of all the finer details, to ensure you have a family holiday to remember! On these trips it is important to note the group will also consist of independent travellers over 18, these trips are not just for families. Take a look at our selection of camping safaris below, which have select tour dates that welcome families and independent travellers.

Lodge Safaris and Private Safaris For The Family


If you're travelling with your family and prefer not to camp, on our Lodge Accommodated Safaris, we accept children aged 12 and over on a request basis. Certain exceptions apply as not all lodges accept children and not all activities are suitable for children. It is also possible to travel with children as young as 9 on certain safaris. Please contact us for further information and let us know the age of your children. 


Alternatively we have a number of Private Safaris which are suitable for families or we can tailor-make the perfect African safari for you and your family, bespoke to your requirements.
