Africa unbound – family adventures for every age

April 1, 2023
Family Travel

Travel is the greatest gift one can give; it elevates the mind and opens the heart. Visual fields switch from the screen to the savannah. Africa’s vast landscapes, rich in wildlife and pristine nature, recalibrate our natural rhythm. To embark on a safari with your loved ones has the potential to transform your family forever. 

“I can honestly say that working with ROAR AFRICA was one of the best travel decisions we’ve ever made! They came highly recommended to us by friends who had taken a couple’s trip, and because of this, we decided to trust them with our first family trip to Africa (two adults, three kids 10 years and under). And are we glad we did! It was a trip of a lifetime! Throughout the entire process, ROAR AFRICA had the knowledge and connections (in Africa and the US) to take all our thoughts about what we’d like to experience on our trip and turn it into a reality.” – Jennifer, ROAR AFRICA guest 

Family adventures at every age

The ROAR AFRICA team personally vets every property we recommend. We personally vouch for unbridled comfort, safety, food, and service. For families traveling with children or a large multi-generational mix, options are myriad.

South Africa’s wilderness spaces, from Kruger National Park to the Kalahari, are rich in wildlife. And the private villas at Cheetah Plains and Singita Castleton or Royal Malewane’s Africa House and Waterside, for example, are ideal for large family groups. Tswalu, nestled into the ochre foothills of the Kalahari's Korannaberg Mountains, allows for encounters with rare black-maned lions, desert black rhinos, meerkats, and endangered creatures like aardvarks and pangolins. Each destination holds its own magic: beekeeping, beading, and wildlife tracking in the 50,000-acre oasis of Segera in Kenya or watching baby turtles hatch and scuttle toward the sea on Seychelles’ North Island. 

Roam and restore together

For those traveling with teenagers aged 15 and above, Botswana and Rwanda brim with once-in-a-lifetime experiences. In the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, one of the wildest places on earth, intimate lodges with three or four individual suites like Little Mombo and DumaTau transform into your own private camp. Or there’s Xigera, a spectacular lodge and a living African art gallery on stilts, surrounded by water channels with exceptional guides ready to lead your family on extraordinary adventures across the richly biodiverse Okavango Delta in traditional mokoros, doors-off helicopters, and open-air vehicles. 

To stay at Singita Kataza House (the only remote villa to offer the gorilla experience) and gorilla trek with your family through the misty, emerald forest canopies of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is to experience a primordial paradise as you encounter these gentle, endangered giants which share 98% of our DNA. Their eyes and playful, protective nature reflect the best of our own humanity.
