According to Diane Ebzery, founder and owner of African Portfolio, two significant features facilitate and distinguish family safari travel:

  1. Exclusive Use Accommodation – With this type of accommodation, a family can book a private house or chalet at a safari destination.  Oftentimes, the exclusive use accommodation will include a dedicated guide, vehicle and even a butler and chef – if so desired.  The travel professionals at African Portfolio will work with the family to create an itinerary that includes this type of accommodation and is customized to meet the individual needs of the family.  This type of trip has wide appeal including for those planning family reunion trips.
  1. Special Children’s ProgrammingFamily safaris will include exciting interactive conservation learning opportunities targeted to the ages of the children in the group.  For example, children could learn important bush skills like the medicinal uses of plants, survival techniques and warning signs of dangerous animals.  Depending on the itinerary created, Mom and Dad may choose to participate with their children, or venture out on their own game drives and wilderness walks.  For parents choosing to venture out on their own, young guests are left in the very capable hands of safari guides and trackers, specially trained to watch your children while you are having your own exciting adventure.
A family safari has become a wonderful way for parents and children to bond during the adventure of a lifetime.  Past clients of African Portfolio have appreciated that the trip helps their children become environmentally responsible travelers of the future.  The family safari is an ideal way to introduce children to the beauty of Africa, the concept of wildlife conservation and environmental sustainability.  Why not contact African Portfolio today to find out more about booking your own family safari adventure of a lifetime!
