Wildly Fun: Kid-Friendly Safari Adventures

Let’s talk about some kid-friendly safari adventures. They will surely make a vacation in the bush an unforgettable experience for the whole family!

1. Kids’ Wildlife Drives

Some safari lodges offer specialized kids’ wildlife drives with shorter durations and interactive activities tailored to kids. Think children’s binoculars, compasses, bug viewers, and maybe a wildlife bingo book. It’s like a mini-safari adventure designed just for them!


2. Bush Treasure Hunts

Turn your safari game drives into thrilling treasure hunts! Guides can hide small treasures along the route, and kids can use clues to find them. It’s a fun way to explore the wilderness and discover hidden gems along the way.

3. Arts and Crafts Corner

Let the kids unleash their creativity in the arts and crafts. From painting and drawing to beadwork and clay modeling, there’s no limit to the fun and imagination. Who knows, they might even create their safari-inspired masterpieces! Having an art corner is also convenient when it’s rainy or cold outside. If space is limited, why not provide a couple animal animal-themed coloring books? 

4. Bush Baking and Cooking Classes

Get the kids involved in the culinary side of safari life with bush baking and cooking classes. They can learn to bake traditional African treats or simply make their own pizzas in a wood-fired oven. Regardless, it’ll feed them and keep them entertained! 

5. Cultural Experiences

Immerse the kids in the local culture with interactive experiences like beadwork workshops, traditional storytelling sessions, or visits to local villages. It’s a chance for them to learn about different cultures and traditions firsthand.

6. Movie Night Under the Stars

Have a movie night where everyone can gather and watch family-friendly movies. Set up a cozy viewing area with bean bags, blankets, and popcorn for an awesome movie night under the stars.

7. An Outdoor Play Space 

Suppose the hotel has outdoor space, set up a play area with games like hopscotch, jump ropes, hula hoops, and bean bag toss. It’s a great way for kids to burn off energy and enjoy the fresh air.
