Once on the road you’ll stop at a Zulu village and experience activities such as hiking, kayaking and rafting before arriving at Kruger National Park for unbelievable wildlife watching.
This trip visits a great spread of Southern African game reserves, putting you right in the midst of the mighty 'Big Five' game of Africa
Camp at Kruger National Park under the African night sky. Experience the sights and sounds of the wild, perhaps the roar of a lion as you drift off to sleep
A Zulu village tour introduces you to a fascinating tribal culture. You might learn about anything from spear-making and bone-throwing to dancing and basket-weaving
Beautifully lit by candles and parafin lanterns, your spacious campsite in Hlane National Park is just a stone's throw from a floodlit waterhole frequented by elephants and rhinos
Enjoy a guided hike at Blyde River Canyon, where the spectacular colours and shades of Bourke's Luck Potholes are a photographer's dream

Our South Africa Family Safari with teenagers trips score an average of 4.42 out of 5 based on 19 reviews in the last year.
Our first Intrepid holiday to India (Family Golden Triangle) was so unbelievably awesome that we knew the African Teenage Safari had some very big shoes to fill....well it didn't disappoint any of our family of three. It was at times scary, funny, sad and it certainly took us all out of our comfort zone and into a totally engaging world. We were mind boggled by breath-taking scenery, beautiful people, wild animals and fell in love with the warthog. The camping was a lot of fun and we say to readers, if you can then just book it!!!

This was a wonderful introduction to Africa and its extraordinary wildlife. It is a basics trip so if you are not happy with camping and basic accommodation - consider upgrading to other options. Also there is a lot of time driving to destinations but in the end it was a chance to snooze and look out the window. The game parks were incredible and we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this trip.
