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
This trip quite a bit of distance, with two particularly long days of travel. A good dose of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of these beautiful countries.

Our South Africa Family Safari with teenagers trips score an average of 4.5 out of 5 based on 22 reviews in the last year.
We had a great time and have seen 4 of the big 5. It will keep it always in good memory. I was supported by our excellent tour guide Colin, the safe driver Alan and by the group constellation. The basic camping was great fun for the teens. It is important to be prepared to have no electricity on the camp sites.
