Kruger Family Friendly Lodges

An African safari with young children, well then the Kruger National Park is an iconic destination for the family traveller. The premiere, most well known and largest of all of South Africa's national parks; it's very name evokes certain deep and visceral emotions.

The safari industry has changed along with its clients over the past 50 years. No longer are children banished and not heard and not even taken along. Some lodges and camps have taken a much more proactive stance concerning children by offering exclusive children's programmes including, in some cases, an almost educational introduction to life in the bush and its fauna and flora.

We have selected in this portfolio a selection of properties which have particularly developed children and young adults programmes and activities. As always, these properties can be included as part of your exclusive and bespoke itinerary.
