to Africa's most iconic wilderness destinations. Travel with your family in the utmost safety and comfort to experience Africa’s extraordinary wild spaces, led by experts. 

Embark on Ultimate Luxury

“Let Africa be your classroom, and the wilderness your teacher.”

– Deborah Calmeyer, Founder and CEO, ROAR AFRICA

Travel is the greatest gift you can give a child. New cross-cultural sights, sounds and experiences elevate the mind and open the heart. In Africa, your visual field switches from screen to savannah. Vast emerald and amber landscapes unfold as far as the eye can see… rich in wildlife and pristine, untouched nature. 

Africa is our home. We know her landscapes intimately, and our team’s knowledge, sensitivity and passion for her wildlife, wild spaces and diverse cultures are unrivaled. To embark on a safari with your loved ones has the potential to transform your family forever.

“I found my peace. Thank you for guiding my family toward what we needed.” – Sandy, ROAR AFRICA guest

Family travel with ROAR AFRICA

A family safari is a learning journey rooted in togetherness

Take a scenic helicopter flight over Table Mountain. Paddle with penguins just outside Cape Town. Wake up with meerkat families in the Kalahari and track rare black-maned lions. Taste fine wine you’ve never heard of and can never buy with the world-class sommeliers we consider dear friends. Immerse yourself in this country’s long history and rich culture through the eyes of local experts who know it like no one else. 

Get up close and personal with exceptional Big Five game viewing at South Africa’s most exclusive private game reserves and lodges, from Tswalu to our top selection of sublime Singita properties. Bask in spectacular scenery on private cycling excursions in Franschhoek. Enjoy cooking classes in the storied Bo-Kaap neighborhood. Visit pristine botanical gardens bursting with biodiversity. Experience magnificent art from Zeitz MOCAA and private collections at Delaire Graff to the otherworldly Dylan Lewis sculpture garden. Whatever your taste and preferences, we’ll show you the absolute best of South Africa in seamless luxury and the utmost safety.

Taking you only to the African safari destinations we know and love

Our philosophy is simple: we only promote those African safari destinations that we know and love, where you can be assured of a seamless luxury experience that will change your family’s life in the most unfathomably beautiful terrains.

Perhaps it’s a safari to Kenya or Tanzania, two iconic East African destinations rich in spectacular landscapes, diverse wildlife and incredible expert-led experiences for children. Further inland, the landlocked country of Rwanda is one of only three countries globally where you and your family still see mountain gorillas nestled into the dense rainforest canopies of the Virunga Mountains. (Those trekking must be 15+ while younger children have their own adventures – pottery, crafts, foraging in the gardens, learning about wildlife, and even baking with the chefs back at the lodge, cared for by vetted, top-tier staff)

Further south, Botswana is home to the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland wetland system that provides the opportunity to witness abundant wildlife in the most pristine, truly undisturbed surroundings you can imagine. Next door is one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the roar and thunder of Victoria Falls, which sits on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia. 

Or maybe it’s South Africa. The ultimate land of contrasts is blessed with several spectacular malaria-free reserves ideal for very young children. Dotted with exceptional geographical, cultural, and experiential diversity, South Africa’s ever-changing landscapes, statuesque mountain ranges, pristine white beaches, spectacular wilderness areas, lush Winelands, and world-class cities exceed even the highest expectations.

I can’t begin to express my gratitude to ROAR AFRICA for arranging the most amazing trip our family has ever had!

“Organizing a group of 13 family members on short notice to celebrate my husband’s birthday in a place we knew nothing about was daunting. It was the little things and the big things that we will forever remember. From dramatic breakfasts in the bush, surprise birthday cakes and impromptu dance parties, not to mention the most spectacular accommodations and knowledgeable guides showing us Africa’s wildlife in all its glory, many times right outside our doors! ROAR AFRICA handled everything to perfection. And may I add, as a family traveling with young children around wild animals, we felt our safety was always considered and properly handled.”

ROAR AFRICA arranged an absolutely unforgettable safari experience for our three-generation family group.

“As we reflect on the trip, it is very apparent that nothing was left to chance. The camps we stayed at, the order of the camps, and the individual experiences we had at each camp were clearly carefully selected and orchestrated to ‘build’ over the two weeks of travel to result in an unforgettable time in Africa. 

We will never forget the warmth and welcome of the people, the stunning wildlife, and the beautiful skies of an African sunset. It would not be an understatement to say that each of us returned home changed because of our time in Africa. It was truly a magical trip of a lifetime--thank you ROAR!”
