A Family Safari with Teenagers

Are you looking to take teens to Africa? Perhaps it’s someone’s birthday? Or maybe you’re thinking of taking your last family holiday together before your loved ones leave the nest. Whatever their ages and whatever the reason for your holiday, a family safari can be extremely rewarding. Any African country will provide you and your family with a fantastic holiday, so you have lots of options. To get you started, here are three ideas for a safari with your teenage children:

Chimp Trekking in Tanzania

Greystoke Mahale is a superb lodge in western Tanzania. It sits on the shores of the stunning Lake Tanganyika with the Mahale Mountains, draped in lush rainforest, as a backdrop. The said lush rainforest is home to families of chimp. Together you can take the walk up the mountain, through the dense forest to find the families. It’s a really special, rewarding sight when you do! When you’re not trekking chimps, the shores are perfect for relaxing and the sparkling lake is excellent for fishing, swimming, snorkelling and water sports.

Riding Safaris in Botswana

Set in the magnificent Okavango Delta in Botswana, Macatoo Safari Camp is one of the best for a superb riding experience. Canter alongside giraffe and zebra, trot across the plains and plunge into the shimmering water channels with one of the camp’s horses. Riding allows you to get closer to the wildlife than in a vehicle because animals see you as just a part of the horse, rather than a separate creature, making it a great way to see game. If you want to spend even longer out with your horse, you can fly-camp overnight. There are activities for non-riding family members at Macatoo too.

Walking and Canoeing in Zambia

Zambia is an excellent choice for families who like their holidays quite active. The properties here are remote and authentic and offer activities where you can really get involved and enjoy your fantastic African surroundings. Canoeing and walking are particularly good in Zambia. On foot you’ll see, hear and notice things that are easily missed in a vehicle. It’s active but not strenuous and gives you a real sense of freedom. Then there’s the mighty Victoria Falls to visit too!

Enjoying a Family Holiday in Africa

Africa is like a completely different world if you’ve not experienced it before, and not matter how much footage you see of other people’s holidays in Africa, it’s not the same until you get there yourself.

A family holiday in Africa can be ideal during the school break, when there’s plenty of time to visit the wildlife, take a boat trip, take a safari tour or perhaps enjoy time by your private plunge pool. It’s country that has something for every type of individual, and the children are bound to enjoy it.

Remember that in the summer the weather is bound to be hot, and you’ll need plenty of sun cream on hand, whilst it’s important to cover up during the peak times of the day. A family holiday in Africa is bound to be unique, it can really bring the whole family together, and we’d definitely recommend it for all kinds of individuals.

Water Rafting on a Family Holiday

A family holiday is not complete without some type of fun, adrenaline-filled activity. Water Raftng can be exactly that on your family holiday, and there are so many different locations to go water rafting, and Wales is an ideal option if you’re not looking to leave the United Kingdom.

Water Rafting is an activity that the children will love and the parents will grow to love. It can be scary to be moving at such a space with nothing but a canoe and a paddle, but you’ll soon see it for what it really is; a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy. If you like a holiday that’s action-packed then explore the great outdoors, and take up some white water rafting.

You can then complete the day with some delicious food and a comfy bed. There are planet of locations out there providing white water rafting, and if you’ve never experienced it before, then give it a go, you won’t regret it, we promise.

3 Ideas for Family Adventures

A family adventure can be whatever you want it to be. There are no rules when it comes to deciding on your family adventure, and to help get your thinking cap on we’re providing you with 3 top notch ideas.

  1. A Safari Holiday – There are so many different safari tours to go, meaning there are plenty of options in terms of budget. Depending on the safari you want to take, you may want a private tour guide, luxury accommodation and your own off-road vehicle. This will up the costs and it all depend on your own wants and requirements.
  2. A Skiing Holiday – This is a holiday hat’s differs from a typical summer holiday. You’re still going to be given sunshine, but you’ll also be presented with heaps of snow, and you’ll definitely create some memories when you’re heading down the snowy mountains with the entire family right behind you.
  3. A Beach Holiday – Our third and final option is again completely different from the previous choice. And there’s no reason why a family adventure can’t be relaxing, and a beach holiday will be fin for children whilst there will be time for the parents to enjoy the sun, and perhaps a little peace and quiet.

Taking a Luxury Holiday

A luxury holiday is designed to be extra special, and perhaps even more memorable than a typical holiday, and if you’re looking to experience life at its best, then you may want to consider taking one.

Luxury holidays don’t just have to be for special occasions, such as honeymoons, birthdays and anniversaries, they can be ideal if you just want to treat yourself. A luxury holiday in Africa can include your own log cabin with a plunge pool, a quiet, secluded location, and high quality services.

There are so many different types of luxury holidays to take, and a luxury skiing holiday can see you staying in a warm and cosy lodge, with an expert ski instructor teaching you when you want to learn, and delicious foods at the ready whenever you’re feeling peckish. Go luxury with your next holiday if you want to experience a completely different type of holiday.
