Tanzania is a good choice for a family safari. Northern Tanzania has spectacular scenery and the superb game viewing that results from the wide open landscapes tends to suits families. Typically, visitors travel between national parks by safari vehicle rather than flying between lodges. For families it’s an area best explored with a private guide and vehicle so that the schedules can be more flexible. Remote Southern Tanzania has an increasing number of properties that welcome children and provide special tailored activities. The pristine beaches on Tanzania’s Indian Ocean coast are a short aircraft flight away.
Laid-back Zanzibar is easy to reach from both Kenya and Tanzania and has an excellent range of family-friendly hotels and lodges with outstanding snorkelling and diving. The spice capital of Stone Town is steeped in history and don’t miss the Zanzibari red colobus sanctuary.
