We have a great selection of Family Overland Tours of Southern and East Africa that welcome families with children onboard. These tours operate with young families in mind, opening up the Overland Travel experience to adventurous families with children from the age of six. On these family-friendly tours, we combine some of Africa's premier wilderness regions with plenty of adventure activities to ensure your children have the trip of a lifetime!
There is nothing quite as special as watching your children view the sights and sounds of Africa for the first time!
The majority of Family Overland Safaris are Camping Safaris conducted in an Overland Truck. As with traditional Overland Camping Safari, you will spend most nights camping in two-man dome tents at basic campsites under the African Stars.
On specific departures of our regular Overland Camping Safaris, families with children are permitted, making them family-friendly. These tours are not exclusively reserved for families, combining diverse travellers of different ages.
All the Family Overland Safaris are active participation safaris meaning each member of the family will be expected to help out with the day-to-day running of the Safari. This is mainly restricted to the campsite and will involve putting up and taking down your own tent and assisting the cook with meals on a roster basis.
Camping tours call for team effort and it is important that everyone is up for the task, especially when travelling with children. It is our experience that the teamwork required is a great way for families to bond, and the children love it!
As with most Overland Tours, Family Overland Tours typically cover long distances between locations, entailing many hours on the road. Please note that long drives are part of the overlanding experience.
There is no greater Adventure for children than to travel with other children to new and exciting places in Africa with some of the most amazing scenery, exotic cultures and wildlife on offer. If you have children and are looking to travel in Africa without the hassle of having to arrange the trip yourself then a Family Overland Tour is a perfect solution.
The minimum age for Family Overland Tours is 6 years of age.
