Kids on Safari

A truly unique, educational and fun family safari!

Upon arrival, our fabulous children’s coordinator (Riverdene Lodge) or lodge manager (Sarili Lodge) will discuss activity options with the family taking the family’s size, children’s ages and the weather into consideration. Child minding facilities are available at an additional cost for children younger than 4 years as they are too young to join game drives.

Each child will receive an age-appropriate gift pack.
