Multigenerational holidays offer kids, parents, and grandparents a great way to reconnect over shared experiences and make new memories at the same time. A safari offers families the perfect opportunity to come together and strengthen family bonds in amazing places offering a wide variety of activities and ample wildlife.

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at multigenerational safaris and discover why they’re the perfect choice for a meaningful family vacation.

What is a Multigenerational Safari?

A multigenerational safari typically involves multiple generations of a family (kids, parents, and grandparents) traveling together to experience Africa’s wildlife and natural environments. This kind of safari caters to diverse age groups and interests, ensuring activities and accommodations that are suitable for everyone.

In many cases, a multigenerational safari will include exclusive-use villas or lodges, so the experience feels like a home away from home and a family reunion in one.

A Special Safari for a Special Occasion

Multigenerational safaris are excellent for milestone occasions like birthdays and significant family celebrations. Spending quality time together in pristine environments and sharing unique safari experiences like game drives, bush walks, and wildlife spotting helps make memories that will last a lifetime.

Some safari lodges even offer special kids’ programs to keep the little ones entertained while the adults reconnect and unwind at the spa, bar, or on a private game drive. 

Two Flavors of a Multigenerational Safari

Thanks to its varied landscapes and environments, Africa offers travelers a wide variety of multigenerational safari holidays. For example, you could take the family on a Big Five safari with a private villa in Thornybush and Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

On the other hand, you might choose to escape to Zanzibar, a short distance off the east coast of Africa, for some tropical island relaxation. Of course, these are just two options.

These accommodations are fully equipped with everything you’ll need to relax in comfort and are situated in stunning locations where you and your family will be the only guests. Game sightings will be uncrowded while your dedicated guide and ranger lead you through the wonders of the African bush.
