Tanzania for Families

A diverse destination to fulfil the entire family’s bucket lists

Watch the wonder alight the faces of your family as you travel through the multifarious landscapes of Tanzania. Walk in the footsteps of the crews of Planet Earth as you marvel at the thousands of wildebeest migrating across the Serengeti. Here, and at the nearby Ngorongoro Crater, the basin of an extinct volcano, you stand a good chance of spotting the Big Five, something your youngsters will enjoy helping find.

From those northern regions, you might choose to book a private charter flight – someone will love sitting alongside the captain in the cockpit – to Mahale National Park on the mountainous western border of this beautiful country.
 
The jungle vistas are a verdant change from the arid Serengeti plains. Here children over 12 will love trekking in search of clambering chimpanzees; this is an up close encounter that you’ll remember forever. Cat lovers will love heading south to Ruaha, where you will hear the distant roar of lions echoing into the evening. Intrepid families of thrill seekers may choose to fly camp within the heart of the bush for a truly wild camping adventure.
