Family safaris in Zambia

Zambia is a great destination for a family trip, with a number of private houses that you can enjoy to yourselves. Fully staffed, with your own safari guide and chef, they also have plenty of space to relax, for children to play and for the family to spend quality time together. Some have swimming pools, and others offer child-minding for youngsters whilst adults are out on a game drive. Older teenagers can also enjoy Zambia's famed walking safaris along with the adults.

The real benefit to these houses is the absolute flexibility; you can eat your meals whenever you wish, do shorter game drives and if you don't want to wake up at dawn each day, you don't have to. The guides are accustomed to teaching children about the wildlife and habitats and some arrange specific excursions such as learning about footprints for children.

We have hand-picked a number of these private houses in the main safari destinations as well as in Livingstone and the Victoria Falls. These range in size, so whether you are a family of four or ten, there is a house that is perfect for you. We consistently get superb feedback on these houses for their flexibility, comfort and attentive staff.
