Discover new experiences together, learn from new cultures, see extraordinary sights, wonder at wildlife and create shared memories with Wilderness’ family safaris.
Travelling as a family you can disconnect from the realities of daily life, have long chats around the campfire and celebrate a special occasion, or simply life itself. Wilderness has your family safari covered with special rooms dedicated for families, experiences for children of all ages and more.

From your private family suite in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, watch the wildlife parade at the waterhole. Play soccer together with local children at the village school.

At the end of the day gather to share stories fireside, or enjoy drinks in the nearby hide where foraging elephants may join you, creating magical family memories.
In the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, discover Jao’s delights with childlike wonder at every turn.

Specialised activities for the kids
Meet our Bush Buddies, key staff members who are your child’s very own guide to the wilderness. Trained in childcare and education, often with children of their own, our Bush Buddies will tailor activities especially around your child’s age and interests. Whether they’re making casts of animal tracks, embarking on a nature treasure hunt, having fun in the camp kitchen, or learning bird calls, your children will feel inspired to appreciate and conserve their own natural worlds.
