There are plenty of exciting places to take your loved ones on a Tanzania family safari, here are some of the top spots:
Whilst we don’t recommend taking children below the age of six years on a safari, it is possible to bring along babies and toddlers on safaris. That said, many safari camps and tour operators may have age restrictions in place.
We advise families to consider the ages of the children they wish to bring as inevitably this could impact the overall experience for the whole family. It’s also important to consider malaria prophylactics to ensure everyone is kept safe.
Tanzania is a fantastic place to visit with your family. With rich cultures to immerse yourselves into and a wealth of wildlife to discover, Tanzania is the perfect destination which can blend learning and adventure together!
With so many other activities to get involved with when you’re not on an action-packed Tanzania family safari, such as exploring colourful markets and relaxing on the sandy beaches of Zanzibar, you’ll be able to please everyone in the group!
If you’re planning a Tanzania family safari, you may be wondering how long flights will be if you’re travelling with children. From the US, you should expect anywhere between 18 - 25 hours. From the UK, flights to Tanzania take approximately 12 hours and it’s worth noting that there may be stops or flight changes on route for both countries.
When travelling to Tanzania with your family, you may need to have vaccinations which will protect you from some diseases which are not found in the UK (for example, hepatitis A & B, yellow fever and typhoid).To find out more about which vaccinations you and your family might need, take a look at the NHS travel vaccinations webpage or feel free to contact us for advice. It is also recommended that you see your GP at least 8 weeks prior to you travelling as some vaccinations will need to be given in advance to work effectively.
Tanzania is a country of beauty which is rich in traditions and cultural heritage, as well as being home to diverse wildlife and the famous Mount Kilimanjaro.
