If you go on to most family travel Facebook groups, you’ll find parents frequently asking if it’s possible to bring a young child on a safari. Typically, the answer is “wait.” These adventurous trips are typically geared toward honeymooners, retirees, and families with much older children. But five-star safari operator Time + Tide is on a mission to prove that notion false.
The five-star safari operator based in Zambia operates several camps in the South Luangwa National Park and advertises that they welcome children of all ages. That’s a rarity in the safari world which typically has age limits. To do that, they offer accommodations, activities, and programming specifically designed with young children in mind.
Time + Tide’s safari accommodations are designed with families in mind and offer various options to suit different preferences and needs. From luxurious two-bedroom family tents to authentic seasonal camps, there is something for everyone. The company’s family safari tents are spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for families to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the great outdoors. In addition, they offer a range of in-room amenities and services to make families feel at home, including special children’s menus and the option to hire childcare services. Plus, they have cribs available for the littlest of travelers.
One of the key features of Time + Tide’s safari camps is the range of children’s available activities beyond the game drives. These include game drives, walking safaris, fishing, kayaking, and sleepouts under the stars. All of these activities are tailored to engage and inspire children of all ages, providing an excellent opportunity for families to spend quality time together in the great outdoors. In addition to these activities, Time + Tide offers a range of in-camp activities designed to keep children entertained and engaged. These include tracking with the guides, setting up camera traps, helping out in the kitchen, and learning about the local culture and history.
Of course, the game drives are a great experience for kids because they offer a chance to witness the marvels of the natural world up close. Children can see a wide variety of animals, from big predators like lions to small insects like fireflies. Kids can also get a different perspective on the wilderness by participating in activities like walking safaris, kayaking, fishing, and even sleeping under the stars. These activities allow kids to connect with nature in an exciting and educational way. And the team will even add a car seat to the jeep for little ones to come along safely.
“The appreciation of wilderness areas, if encouraged from childhood, lasts a lifetime and into adulthood,” Time + Tide’s CEO Bruce Simpson told me. “It instills in our children a deep need and wants to appreciate and protect these destinations for future generations. If we can influence how a child, a family, see the world and influence their desire to protect these natural environments, then we have made a difference in the world.”
Ultimately, taking a youngster on a safari is an adventurous endeavor. But if it’s something you’re eager to do before your kids get older, Time + Tide wants to make that happen as easily as possible.
