Imagine the excitement and the look of amazement on your child's face for the first time as elephant, zebra or lion....stroll by.
"Think back to when you were young. If you we’re anything like me, and every other kid, you loved adventure. Your imagination was boundless and you were fearless. Just imagine if your parents took you to Africa, on safari."
No matter what age you are, an African safari can shape you. Yes, even children.
Think back to when you were young. If you we’re anything like me, and every other kid, you loved adventure. Your imagination was boundless and you were fearless. So, just imagine if your parents took you to Africa, on a safari.
And, what better way to experience Africa than through the eyes of a child.
There are so many lessons that Africa can teach its youngest visitors – providing a meaningful, educational and unforgettable experience.
Arguably, the most powerful part of it all is instilling an appreciation of the natural world in kids. They gain an understanding of the environment surrounding them, as well as the importance of preserving it for future generations.
And, of course, there’s the incredible wildlife and jaw-dropping nature – but also the people that live there. Home to an incredible diversity of cultures, an African safari encourages interaction with local communities – teaching young children about people of different races, religions and their daily life.
There are a number of amazing initiatives focusing on children’s safaris. The Great Plains Young Explorers Program, Wilderness Seba Camp, and Londolozi’s Varty Camp are three family places, located in Botswana and South Africa, catering for children from six and above.
For Botswana lovers, the Great Plains Young Explorers Program is extensive and blends fun with becoming a conservation ambassador. In a one-week children awareness programme tailored to Great Plains Conservation’s conservation principles, children learn about hopes for the future of Africa’s wildlife and wildness.
Then, there’s the Wilderness’s Seba Camp that caters to families and for young children to learn about the bush.
Botswana is an ideal family safari destination, as private concessions and low guest numbers allow maximised flexibility to explore by foot, canoe and vehicle – day and night.
And in South Africa, there’s the Londolozi’s Varty Camp – which engages children in fun activities to not only teach them about their role in managing and conserving Africa’s incredible biodiversity, but also about people, cultures, building friendships, trust and survival. All great life skills!
