On game drives, because a safari guide is the leader of the temporary game spotting “team”, parents are relieved of much of the responsibility to “entertain”. The whole family gets not only a real break but one that gives rise to recounted tales for years afterward.
If parents DO fancy some quality adult time, River Lodge is most suitable for smaller humans who may need some extra family-friendly facilities. The Cubs Club kids centre is an ideal place for younger kids to hang out with games, bean bags and arts and craft opportunities.
On request, we can offer someone to entertain your kids after breakfast with various activities from cupcake decorating, bug/treasure hunting, making animal face masks, colouring in, board games, wildlife DVDs and scrap booking and more.
Your guide may also teach your older child the skill of archery or to do a short walk looking at animal spoor around the lodge.
This allows parents some quiet time for reading or a visit to the spa.
DIFFERENT FAMILY ACCOMOCATION AT OUR LODGES
Each of our family-friendly lodges offers slightly different accommodation. River Lodge has two-bedroom family chalets. Camp George has inter-leading suites and is fenced. Amani has only four bedrooms with two on each side of the lounge. And Homestead is an exclusive use villa designed with families in mind. Check out each lodge accommodation for more details.
This is education by stealth, and it’s a hands-on, interactive experience
