Families are warmly welcomed at all of our camps and lodges. However, due to location and available facilities, some may be more suited to families than others. Our ‘Good/Better/Best’ family suitability rating system will help you choose the right safari experience for you and your family.
Families with children aged five and older are warmly welcomed in these camps, however we do not offer special family tents, activities for children or personal guides. Children are accommodated in a separate tent or by adding a third bed to a tent; we strongly recommend that children below 12 always share a room/tent with an adult.
• Little Oliver’s
• Kimondo Camp
• Nomadic Camp
• Ubuntu Camp
A larger family tent with separate bedrooms can accommodate up to five family members. We love catering for the individual needs of families, however safety is always our top priority and the wilderness environment in these camps is not conducive to providing a specific outdoor safari programme for children.
Families of six or more are guaranteed a private safari vehicle at no extra cost in low season. In high season, families with children under 12 are obliged to use a private game-viewing vehicle at an additional cost.
• Dunia Camp
• Olakira Camp
• Oliver’s Camp
• Rekero Camp
• Sayari Camp
These camps offer excellent family safaris. Personal attention, guiding, accommodation and service are focused on creating a superb safari experience for adults and children alike. Our Kids’ Safari Programme adds an extra layer of wonderful experiences for your children. These camps have no minimum age restrictions. However, parents are required to sign a waiver for children under five, and must be indicate how many children are included when they book. This does not include Rubondo Island, where the minimum age is five.
Note that our exclusive-use beach villa on Zanzibar, Matemwe Beach House (with its own private chef and activity guide) is superb for family beach holidays even though there is no designated children’s activity programme.
