A Family Vacation in Africa

How about an African family safari for a vacation? It might sound too far and seem like a totally different world. Well, both are right and that’s why it’s worth considering. A trip to Africa is an extraordinary holiday like no other; it is an excellent break from the conventional weekend picnics, amusement parks and even trips to Europe. An African family safari is not only a great way to spend time together, it will surely ignite everyone’s spirit, invigorate the body and inspire you to live a more meaningful life.

Africa has been gifted with so much natural beauty. Planning well is a must to make the most out of the trip, taking into consideration safety, interests and of course budget. It may be expensive, but rest assured it will be worth every cent spent. Every country in the continent has its own share of stunning sceneries and amazing wildlife. For the first timers, South Africa is one of the safest places for a family with younger children because some of their game reserves are malaria-free all year round and it’s where the famed Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros) can also be seen. Other neighboring countries like Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and Namibia are equally interesting but game drives and walking safaris might be restricted for the young ones.

Seeing the awe on the face of the children when they first set eyes on a lion, giraffe, elephant, and other animals in their natural habitat is simply a wonderful experience. There are also opportunities for bird watching and snorkeling. Allowing the children to interact with the local children is a good way for them to experience firsthand the African culture. Savor the taste of their wines and food. Enjoy the spectacular landscapes of deserts, forests, mountains, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and cool down in the pristine beaches. The list of things to do in Africa goes on. An African family safari will make the family much closer and the children more educated. Not only will it make the children environmentally responsible, but also socially responsible as they are exposed to the simple lifestyle of most Africans. The safari experience offers a lot of learning opportunities for children of all ages that a trip to other places can never rival. No matter what country one chooses, Africa promises a wealth of adventure and learning experiences, which will be magical for the whole family, for both parents and children.
