Africa can be an incredible family-friendly destination to visit. There is an array of experiences to please every member of your crew - from toddlers to elders. In South Africa, families will be pleased to know about the malaria-free reserves they can stay at and the wide range of activities that exist. Africa also offers a collection of family safari lodges across Botswana, Tanzania, Kenya and Zimbabwe. With older children there is also the possibility of exploring Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.
