Family Safari

A family safari is a wonderful way to introduce your children to the outdoors and wildlife without having to worry about them getting bored on a typical safari tour.

Why Tanzania/Africa is the best For Family Safari

Tanzania's commitment to safety, comfortable accommodations, and tailored experiences make it the perfect destination for a remarkable family safari that will be talked about for years to come. Amidst captivating landscapes and diverse wildlife, Tanzania offers a journey that creates cherished memories and profound connections. Witness majestic elephants, playful zebras, and graceful lions in their natural habitat, fostering a lifelong appreciation for nature. The breathtaking scenery, cultural immersion with local communities, and guided educational experiences ensure that every day is an adventure of discovery. Disconnect from screens and distractions, and truly connect with each other over wildlife culture.


Accommodation and dining options for a safari with kids
Accommodation that provides a buffet option is always a family safari favorite, making it easy for kids to eat and drink what they like (and as much of it as they want), and keeping their spirits up and bellies full. A la carte dining is a bit restrictive for children, offering them limited food options. Every family is different. Speak to us – we’ll design the best possible family safari experience for you and your children.

Best Time To Visit Tanzania For A Family Safari

When it comes to planning the perfect family safari in Tanzania, timing is key. The dry season, from June to October, emerges as the prime window for an unforgettable adventure. With comfortable weather and wildlife congregating around water sources, this period offers excellent game viewing opportunities for families. Should you consider the shoulder seasons of November and May, you'll experience lush landscapes and fewer crowds, making it an appealing option for those seeking a balanced experience. Even the wet season, from December to April, holds its charm with newborn wildlife and vibrant vegetation. For families with school-aged children, aligning your visit with school holidays can enhance the experience. Whether it's witnessing the Great Migration's spectacle in the southern Serengeti from January to March or opting for a budget-friendly safari, Tanzania's diverse seasons cater to a range of family preferences. Collaborate with us to create the ultimate family safari, tailored to your unique desires and schedules.

On an African safari with the family, less is more.
The day is split into two parts when we plan family safaris. Your guide will highlight wild cats and other fascinating larger wildlife during an early-morning game drive to capture the attention of your children. This will allow the tour guide to talk to and involve the kids while driving, keeping their interest. We advise you to keep driving distances as short as possible or at the very least, break up the day with some interesting stops, to ensure that the children are kept interested and cheerful.
In the afternoon, we introduce a daytime activity that takes place outside the car. The perfect activities to pique interest include a quick stroll, a session identifying animal footprints, or a game-tracking exercise. For both children and parents, cultural experiences are excellent safari activities and a welcome change of pace.

Traveling with Children: Entry Requirements, Visas, and Health Precautions
At Tanzania Inside and Safari, we prioritize your family's safety and comfort throughout your journey. Ensuring a smooth travel experience with children involves understanding entry requirements and visas. Many countries, including Tanzania, have specific regulations to ensure the safety and security of minors. These often include a valid passport, unabridged birth certificate, and potentially consent letters from parents. Additionally, safeguarding your family's health is paramount. Consult healthcare professionals for recommended vaccinations and health precautions, considering the unique needs of children. Comprehensive travel insurance is a must, covering unforeseen circumstances that may disrupt your plans. If traveling with one parent or without both parents, consent letters may be required. Having embassy or consulate contact information at hand offers reassurance in case of emergencies. Familiarize yourself with local laws and customs to navigate your destination respectfully. As your dedicated travel partner, we're here to guide you through the details, ensuring your family's journey is safe, smooth, and memorable.

Preventive measures, such as using insecticide-treated bed nets, taking antimalarial medications, and wearing protective clothing, are crucial for reducing the risk of malaria infection among children and adults alike.
