Four Great Locations For A Family Reunion Safari In East Africa
By Anwynn Louw – Digital Marketing Assistant
Planning a multigenerational safari with grandparents, parents and children in tow means having to consider what each person would enjoy, appreciate, and take away from the experience. Booking out a camp exclusively allows you the freedom to plan your entire schedule and experience a safari at your own pace.
Whether you are planning a special occasion, such as a family reunion, or just wanting to enjoy quality family time together, everything is done according to what you want. Your group will be able to wake up as early, or as late, as they please, head out on game drives at their leisure and shape the safari of their dreams. When booking a camp exclusively with us, you have the luxury of planning your days as you see fit – there will be no set itinerary. If some would rather stay in camp, others can explore the surrounding areas on a game drive in your private safari vehicle.
All meals are tailored to your group’s desires, and daily activities can be pre-arranged to ensure everyone makes the most of their time in East Africa. Our exclusive selection of private properties offers an outstanding, personalised safari experience with specialist guides, private vehicles, in-house chefs, and a full team on-hand to ensure your time with us is as outstanding and memorable as can be.
