Safaris in Africa, The Best Family Vacation Ever!


Safaris in Africa, The Best Family Vacation Ever!

Travel can be transformative. It’s an experience that expands the mind, no matter how old you are. When you travel, your perspective shifts and you begin to see things differently. The same is true for children or teenagers. Travel can result in increased confidence, enhanced world knowledge, and an overall higher level of maturity than that of their peers who have not travelled.

Travelling with children can be a challenge though and can seem daunting to parents. The idea of protecting your child in a new environment you have little to no control over may seem scary, but there are ways to mitigate your stress and ensure your children have a good time.

Journeys Worldwide, offers small group tours that offer the valuable experience of travel, but in a safe and chaperoned manner. Safaris are guided, so there will be a capable and experienced tour guide showing you around. They will have visited or lived in the area they’re showing you so they will know how to keep you and your family safe on your tour.

In our experience, safaris are fantastic for families travelling together. We have safari-focused tours, that offer incredible highlights and are suitable for the whole family! A safari with the family is the perfect introduction to travel for your children. 

If you’ve not yet seen Africa’s Big Five, or the hundreds of amazing smaller animals, a safari with Journeys Worldwide, is a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the kinds of animals you’ve only ever heard of.  Enjoy Africa’s natural splendour from comfortable open game drive vehicles, where our expert guides will ensure you don’t miss a moment of the live animal action. See the most spectacular scenery, capture once-in-a-lifetime photographs and make family memories that last forever.

Explore incredible animals during The Mammals of Ethiopia. Have a safari in Zambia or Zimbabwe. Or experience North Africa and its unique wildlife. Journeys Worldwide has so much to offer! There are so many incredible safari options to choose from!

Get even closer to nature on our walking safaris and canoe trips or combine all of these experiences in a tailor-made itinerary. All our tours are small group tours, so you can have one-on-one engagement with the tour guide accompanying you. Your guide will know all about the places, animals and itinerary items, allowing you to simply sit back, relax and enjoy!

Absorb fascinating local culture and enjoy Africa’s warm hospitality. End each day relaxing at the campfire or sipping sundowners with a view of Africa’s spectacular sunsets. There’s a reason Africa is one of the most highly regarded tourist destinations and with us, you could experience its majesty too!

Safaris are a fantastic way to explore the natural world, and everyone should experience one, sometime in their lives. Safaris are a wonderful experience for the whole family and the ideal introduction to travel for children and teenagers! They’re one of our favourite holiday options for families.
