  1. There are plenty of great options to choose from when planning safari holidays with children in Tanzania.  Tanzania offers great for safaris for children because they’re super-welcoming to young travellers, many lodges do not impose a minimum age stay and accommodations are large enough to cater for all the family stay together in comfort.

    Once you’ve decided the best itinerary with Children (You can ask us for recommendation), all that’s left to do is prepare for your safari holiday. Here are our top five tips for safaris with children:

    • Sun protection:long hours in the sun can put skin at risk of burning, so make sure you bring high-factor sun creams, hats for game drives and rashie swimsuits for pool time.


    • Insect bites:have some reliable insect repellents to hand, especially for the evenings and wetter environments. An anti-itch, post-bite balm is also a great idea.


    • Food:most lodges cater to dietary requirements, but if you’re concerned then we can contact ahead of time with special requests you may have.


    • Travel:all safaris include plenty of driving time, so make sure younger children can sit still for long periods without car seats or straps. Motion sickness tablets are also good to have on standby


    • Preparation:whether this is your first long-haul holiday as a family, the first time your children fly on a plane, or the first time they’ll see African animals in the wild, talk to your children often about what to expect in the weeks leading up to your trip. Researching together, watching films or reading books about the destination you’ll be visiting will help them understand what to expect.
