Africa Family Vacations | Ciao Bambino!

A vacation to Africa is one of the best trips to take with children to introduce them to both incredible wildlife and nature, as well as profound cultural differences that create well-rounded global citizens of the future. With kid-friendly activities like Jeep safaris, tribal visits, conservation volunteer projects and Moroccan market tours, this is a chance to expose your children to ways of life that have withstood the test of time. It’s also an opportunity to experience climates vastly different from those closer to home, like deserts and grasslands. Kid-friendly hotels and resorts are surprisingly abundant throughout the continent, so it is possible to book a wide variety of accommodation styles in one trip as you travel around Africa, lending just enough variety to add to the excitement of this exotic destination.

Our Happy Travelers
"Our family took an incredible trip to Africa. Our hearts are still there! As a good friend once told us, "It will change you," and indeed, our adventure through Cape Town, Johannesburg and three thrilling safaris in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Zambia was nothing short of life-changing. The magic of our journey came from the warmth and hospitality of the local people, breathtaking orange and red sunsets and sunrises, adorable baby elephants, and the unforgettable meals! Above all, the highlights were our adrenaline-pumping animal-spotting expeditions alongside experienced guides who dedicate their lives to protecting these magnificent creatures and the rich history and the message of hope shared by Nelson Mandela. Sharing every moment with our 9-year old child brought immeasurable joy to our hearts! Thank you, Linda, for planning this for us."

We will call you first the next time we travel!"
