Why take your family on Safari?

A2BThe world is changing at a dramatic pace due to the growth of technology. It does make our lives easier, we learn faster and it brings the world closer. However, the only thing that is drifting further apart, are our families. As adults we can chose what is right and wrong, and have a greater need for technology as it is what grows our economy, but as children, they do not know what is right or wrong because they do what they see around them. It is time to take them out of this environment and surround them with nature and reconnect with your children. The “real signal strength” is very strong out in the African bush and the communication between you and your family is clearer than ever.

There is every element of a good person on safari, patience, fun, excitement, appreciation, beauty, skill, colour, simplicity and humbleness. One experiences all of these, therefore exposing and surrounding your child to the good qualities of what makes us real people.

After travelling to hundreds of various lodges over 20 years, we know which establishments accept your child with open arms, keep them busy, entertained, educated and loved. It is a wholesome experience that we should all be doing more of and that has no down sides. You will have a private vehicle and guide which allows you to adapt your game drive around the interests and patience levels of your children. A family or inter-leading room keeps you close together. Baking cookies in the kitchen with the chef behind the scenes, painting murals, kiddies walks and bush quests are just a few ways in which these amazing child friendly lodges and Africa Direct make this an unforgettable family experience.

Let us help you water and feed what is so important to us all and help you plan a safari with you and your family.

Tintswalo Safari Lodge

A4B“As a bit of a Safari geek who has been to lodges throughout Eastern and Southern Africa, I can confidently say that this is one of the best around. The staff was absolutely superb, and the accommodation simply stunning. The food was also to a very high standard. The game viewing was outstanding, and the guides didn’t simply rush you from one viewing to another, you actually got to spend ‘quality’ time at each viewing. Simply could not recommend this lodge enough.” – Steve

The six spacious and sumptuous suites all have private decks and a plunge pool, and overlook a waterhole frequented by variations of wildlife. Each suite is also authentically decorated to recall the pioneering times of the nineteenth century African explorers they are named for.

The mostly untouched reserve; shares unfenced borders the Kruger National Park to the east, the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve on the north, and the Sabi Sand Reserve on the south.
