You may well have heard that this is a place for honeymooners – or retirees – or the solo adventurer – the guy who thinks he’s the great explorer out on his last adventure. Well, all these things are true and all these kinds of people do enjoy a trip to Africa, but make no mistake - an African safari is a fun family affair!
On an Africa Luxury safari tour there really is something for the whole family. From Mom and Dad to the teenage members of the family, to the very young ones, Africa, with the thrill of the game drives, its diverse culture, spectacular scenery and many other features of a guided safari tour, is a vacation destination of a lifetime.
Peace of mind for parents
Spectacular scenery, luxuriously appointed lodges with sparkling pools and relaxing game drives, all contribute to an overwhelming sense of calm and well-being experienced in this beautiful place.
Relaxing spas and sipping champagne at sunset, not to mention the calm and serenity experienced as the wind blows through one’s hair on an African luxury safari game drive, all contribute to newly kindled romance and the well-earned rest that Mom and Dad so sorely need.
All they need to worry about is an ever increasing waist line as the local cuisine experienced in the amazing lodges is plentiful, delicious and inviting and it is paired with some of the finest locally brewed beer and expertly made wines in the World.
Thrills and romance for Teenagers
For the teenagers it’s all about thrills and the possibility of romance – well an African luxury safari can offer both – and in abundance. The thrill experienced on the game drive when for the first time one spots any of Africa’s most difficult animals to spot - the famous ‘Big 5’ of Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, Rhino and Leopard way surpasses any roller coaster ride!
There are many thrills to be experienced as part of a luxury African safari tour too, like white river rafting, bungee jumping from some of the highest bridges in the world, flying on a hand held trapeze through the Tsitsikamma forest, surfing and every form of airborne adventures from hot air ballooning to helicopter flips over the magnificent Victoria Falls.
Romance is alive too in this place of great romance. Africa boasts the youngest population in the world and walks on romantic beaches, snuggling up in an open topped vehicle on the game drive and breath taking views all lend themselves to budding vacation liaisons.
Fun and learning for Kids
For kids the thrill and sheer fun of the game drives is a first time experience that will live with them forever. The guided walks through the bush are educational, stimulating and just sheer fun. Curious young minds marvel as much at the intricate ball of dung woven by the dung beetle as he rolls it across a bush road, as hand feeding Elephants who wonder into some of the lodges.
Bonding for everyone
There is really nothing quite as bonding in a family unit as the shared thrill of the game drive as this offers a chance for everyone, young and old to seek, thrill to, photograph and delight in the most magnificent wildlife on the planet.
Without a doubt a South African luxury safari tour, with visits to the world renowned Kruger Park, spectacularly scenic drives and multiple opportunities for extreme sports, offers everyone a unique and special vacation and is testimony to the fact that an African safari is a fun family affair!
