This trip combines the wonders of Ngorongoro Crater and the open plains of the Serengeti with one of our favourite beach lodges at Pongwe in Zanzibar. You’ll have your own private driver/guide who will make this family holiday that little more special. Forget the social media, track the big five, swim in crystal blue waters and re-find your big family smile.
A safari&beach family holiday works perfectly over the summer or Christmas holidays, but is also totally do-able over February or October half term. Travel from UK to Africa means no jet lag so you are on holiday as soon as you land. For those with an extended October half term, adding a couple of extra days on safari and a few more days on the beach is a great option too.
This price per person cost is 25% of a family of four, 2 adults and 2 children under 12 years based on travel in October.
Your guide will be ready for you after breakfast, and together you can head out on the road to Tarangire. Enjoy a picnic lunch overlooking the marshes, which between June and October attract huge herd of elephant. See lots of ‘first sightings’ to get the adrenalin flowing.
Head to Rhotia Valley, a charming eco lodge with fantastic views across the Ngorongoro highlands. Actively involved in local charities, staying at this lodge will directly benefit the nearby children’s home and schools (where we can also arrange a visit).
After a good night’s sleep in your family tent, head out to the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, one of the world’s natural wonders, where you will descend into the crater for an exciting day’s safari before returning back to lodge.
Your route today takes you through the highlands, past Masai Villages, Oldhuvai Gorge and into the open Serengeti.
Arrive at Naona Moru for your two day’s luxury camping in the wild. You have the option of a family tent or two tents if your children are a little older. Enjoy day’s out on safari with breakfast in the bush, lunch on the bonnet or the most amazing sundowners.
Enjoy chats round the campfire and excellent bush cuisine. However, with your own private guide you can plan your days as you wish to really enjoy that time together as a family.
With a short flight from the Serengeti to Zanzibar, the beach tag on to your family safari is very convenient. Leave your safari camp in the morning and arrive at Pongwe for a dip in the stunning turquoise sea by afternoon.
This is one of our favourite beach lodges with a spacious family room or adjacent beach huts offering extremely comfortable accommodation. Spend your days snorkelling, diving, swimming or chilling on the hammocks on this stunning beach. You will love it here.
A family safari&beach holiday at half term is almost the perfect time to go. Flights are cheaper and camps are out of peak season so value is much greater than summer and Christmas holidays. Weather is perfect and in both February and October and game viewing is spectacular.
