It may seem unexpected but a safari in Africa can provide the most wonderful and rewarding experience for all the family.
Kenya, for instance, really does specialise in entertaining and educating kids of all ages while providing the parents with the opportunity of some peaceful game viewing – or just relaxing.
Tanzania also has some very child-friendly properties and a spell at one of the resort hotels on Zanzibar makes a fitting end to a safari.
Botswana has some small private camps where families are looked after by attentive guides while South Africa has the benefit of some excellent game viewing in malaria-free areas.
Although the distances are quite long, a self-drive holiday in Namibia allows the family to choose when and how the time is spent each day.
