TRIP REPORT ON TANZANIA
International Ventures Ltd is pleased to offer safaris geared specifically for family travel. Customized itineraries are available for families on any of our safari destinations, which include Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia.
We’ve searched for family-friendly lodges and camps and are happy to report many of our favorite camps and lodges now offer family rooms; some even “house” accommodation. Depending on the size of your family group this might be a better option than the standard twin or triple (even quad) share accommodation.
We recognize each family group, because of ages, interests and travel “style” have their own requirements and preferences. We include sightseeing everyone can enjoy and activities interesting for all generations.
Personal note from Margaret Sanko: I can think of no better way to reconnect with your family, than an African safari vacation! There is something for everyone, plus a tremendous opportunity to educate the children about game conservation, the environment and different cultures. I’ve found FAMILY is a big part of the local cultures, children are adored and welcomed. You’ll experience adventure, down time to reflect and converse, awe inspiring vistas, not to mention seeing up close (wild) animals, animals, animals! It’s back to basics with fresh air, sitting around the dinner table (being served delicious, home cooked meals), the sights and sounds of nature, enjoying time to simply contemplate the endless stars in the African sky.
Some of our Customized family safari (where safari length, cost and itinerary is dependent on your requirements) suggestions include:
The Highlights of Kenya: A full range of safari options including camel rides, visiting Jane Goodhalls Chimpanzee sanctuary, a hot air balloon ride over the plains of Masai Mara. A wonderful choice for your first family safari. Optional beach extension to Kenya coast.
As families tend to travel during June/July/August and December – the peak travel times for safari, we recommend reservations are requested as far in advance as possible. Or, why not consider a safari vacation during your child’s schools spring break?

Private sightseeing geared towards your families interests, including; Cape Town Harbor, Table Mountain, Seal Island, Boulders Beach for African Penguins.
