From Morocco to Kenya to Tanzania, Africa is the land of the ultimate family adventure. Deserts, lakes, vast plains, endless sand dunes, and horizons filled with grazing, flying and migrating animals inspire awe in even the youngest visitors. Beyond the safari, day-long visits with area tribal groups provide families with a glimpse into Africa’s culture and the 1,000-year-old traditions that have survived political upheavals, animal migrations and tourists. A vacation in Africa with kids is an education in history, geography, survival, and conservation and the only homework is to absorb it all like a sponge.
Family-friendly accommodations in Africa include city hotels, as well as game lodges in the bush with activities for all ages and interests.
