Family safari holidays in Tanzania

Famous for lion prides in the Serengeti, the pristine beaches of Zanzibar, and its friendly people, families with a good sense of adventure can enjoy an exciting safari in Tanzania.

Tanzania is a ten hour flight from the UK, but with only a two hour time difference, so is easily accessible without worries about jet-lagged youngsters. We would suggest children age seven years and older will get the most out of a safari, and there are a number of camps that welcome children and have facilities such as swimming pools for hot days.

Activity highlights include learning about and spotting the Big Five on safari, meeting the Maasai, trying your hand at traditional line fishing, snorkelling in the warm Indian Ocean, and activities such as beach volleyball on Zanzibar.
