Safaris for Kids

Safaris were once such a luxury that they were reserved only by honeymooners for that trip of a lifetime. Well, times have certainly changed. These days more and more safari outfitters are catering to the post-honeymoon crowd, otherwise known as families. At Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa, the “Kids on Safari” package (geared to children ages four and up) lets the little ones see the Big Five, and have special visits to the Born Free Foundation to see lions that almost died in captivity, soon to be released into the wild. In Zambia, Norman Carr Safaris has a special “Kids Go Wild” trip that teaches about the conservation of lions in the dense bush. Families also learn to play traditional African drums and mold clay pottery into African sculpture. At Sanctuary Olonana in Masai Mara, Kenya, children spend a morning with kids at the local Maasai school after touring their village.

For most of us, traveling to Africa is more expensive than we can afford. However, for those who want to experience the feel of a safari, without the expensive price tag, visit Lion Country Safari. There are two locations, one in West Palm Beach, Florida and one in Irvine, California. A great alternative for those on a low budget.
