Family Safaris in the Eastern Cape

Safari Options for Families Travelling with Younger Children

The safari lodges of the Eastern Cape are absolutely ideal for a family safari, and it is no wonder that they are one of the most popular safari destinations in Southern Africa for people travelling with younger children.

Many of the lodges here welcome children under 12, and some also offer a dedicated children's programme for their very young guests, who may be too young to safely join their parents or older siblings on the 3-4 hour Big 5 morning and afternoon game drives. 

The Addo Elephant National Park also offers the opportunity for families to self-drive in their own car - the advantage of which is obviously no age restrictions whatsoever!
