Overland Safaris for the family

Most of our overland style safaris are only suitable for adults, but if you're keen to take your tribe to Africa on an overland camping style safari, we have a handful of family friendly departures in Southern Africa which are suitable for children aged 6 and over. These safaris are ‘hands on’ and require full participation. Putting up your own tents and helping with the cooking & cleaning is all part of the experience. Our family friendly overland safaris are: Falls to Joburg, Wildlife Beach & Falls and Southern Circuit. Families with children aged 12 and above are also welcome on most of our Lodge Accommodated Safaris and Tailor-made Safaris.
