SHOULD YOU TRAVEL WITH BABIES ON AFRICAN SAFARIS

What is the right age for Travel with Babies on Safari?

For many families an African safari trip remains a once in a life time experience. The age of the children becomes especially important when the family “doubts “ if they will be making a Africa safari a repeat vacations or financially they can afford it only once.

If the later is the case, it will help to at let the kids are of an age that they can really hold the safari memories – a good age guideline is 8 years and above. Don’t be carried away by discounts given to under 5 years old – think long term, if your child will not fully take in the African vacation what is the lose in waiting for 2-3 more years? Remember the safari operator is business and your kids are relying on you to make the best decisions to their advantage.

You must also consider how well your kids will fare on the on flight to Africa. The younger your child is, the more difficult it will be not just for him but also for you - the parent. Coming from Europe think of the + 8 hours flight and N. America you are on + 13hours, add to this the check-in times, changing flights and it can be nightmare for any under 5 year child.

Even if your safari is fully supported, and indeed a good African safari trip with kids should have all ground logistics taken care of, there are some responsibilities that fall on you as the parent (guardian) of the child and not on the tour operator. E.g. if you go on an African family safari with a child who needs a car seat, the vehicles you will use for safari will not have baby car seats.

Do you want the hassle of bringing a child's seat OR the risk of having your child not secured in the safari vehicle?

Wildlife viewing is a highlight on family safaris to Africa. be a live to the fact that game drive can be tiring to a kids whose attention span may on hold to the 3rd giraffe, not the 5th and please not the 10th for the 4th day in a row! See the game drive from your child's position and seriously consider if he is of the age to handle the safari.

So age of your child matters in making your African family vacation.
