A Tanzania Safari for Families

Tanzania Safari Family Joy

A Tanzania safari is a great idea for a family holiday and the country offers excellent opportunities for all of you to spend some quality time together game viewing and participating in other activities. Some enjoy the hustle and bustle of busy camps, staying with other guests, while others prefer to make a Tanzania safari their own by hiring private guides and vehicles, giving the flexibility to explore and discovery the surrounding lands at your own pace. Granted the infrastructure isn't as great as other country's on the continent but for any children you may bring with you this will only add to the air of adventure as you board boats and light-aircrafts to reach your destination.

The Northern Circuit

If you'd prefer not to be using various transportation methods on your Tanzania safari, visit the northern end of the country. Known as one of the best game viewing destinations, huge concentrations of animals inhabit both the busy tourist-laden parks as well as the more remote areas. Children will no doubt be keen to spot the 'Big Five' on your Tanzania safari so a trip to the Serengeti will not only be incredibly memorable but will provide an awesome amount of animals to view thanks to the wildebeest migration. A trip to this region can be enjoyed for the duration of your holiday, reducing the amount of travel if you very young children with you. Also consider Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Tarangire National Park as bases for your getaway as all offer comfortable fully equipped camps and exciting excursions.

Concluding your Tanzania Safari on Zanzibar Island

Once you and your family have seen and experienced the wondrous sights on your safari in Tanzania you may want to kick back and relax. Many people hop over to Zanzibar to take it easy visiting heritage sites, soaking up the unique architecture and partaking in water sports on the white sandy beaches. Sunbathe to your heart's content, help the kids build sandcastle cities or discover the hidden world beneath the surface in amongst the colourful reefs. Rest and recharge your batteries, spending time together as a family on this idyllic island before it's time to head home. Your children will talk non-stop about the sights, animals and excursions they have experienced on this holiday of a lifetime. A Tanzania safari really is one of the best ways for a family to come together and encounter a range of unexpected and wondrous things, seeing the world from anew.
