Get back to Nature!
When you think of ‘ideal’ family holidays, its usually a vision of an all-inclusive beach resort or some sort of theme park that comes to mind. However, something as spectacular as a safari could be the perfect family vacation! What we offer is totally engaging. Take a Tanzania Family Safari and get the whole family outside. Reconnect with nature, and feed all your senses!
Your family in safe hands
The Tanzania Family Safari is the perfect holiday for all ages, because it allows multiple generations to make and treasure memories for ever. At Africa Nature Photography & Safaris, we have been specializing in private family safaris and for years. Doing something that is good for mind, body and soul, in the great outdoors, is a rare thing. Our Tanzania Family Safari offers all this and more!
Accommodation and Dining
Our family-friendly safaris offer comfortable accommodation for all manner and size of families, which includes camps/lodges that offer interconnecting rooms, family suites and family tents. When it comes to food and drink, we have that covered too because it is a major consideration. So, we ensure safe drinking water and wide variety of tastes and dietary needs are catered to.
Visiting a local village, for example, provides interesting learning opportunities for young and old alike. But even though the differences may be obvious at first, our common basic desires often unite people across continents. Things like health, happiness and opportunities to expereince life to the full. Often the children lead the way in this respect, espcially when you see them at play together. This enriching learning experience has often proved life-changing for many of our younger guests.
Our most popular activities include:
- Visit to local school
- Time at a local market
- Cycling excursions
- Nature walks
- Meet a local family
Making your mark
Our visitors often want to leave gifts for those they meet. School supplies are in great need in Tanzania, so you may wish to bring them with you for local school. Items for consideration include pens, crayons, exercise books, small back packs, coloring books and world maps. Visitors are often asked to pay duty at Kilimanjaro Airport on school supplies so, we recommend distributing the items among your regular clothes and luggage to reduce the chance of being asked to pay duty. Alternatively, you could bring a little extra cash and purchase supplies in Arusha and we will help you deliver them.
Although there currently aren’t any required immunizations for travel to Tanzania, we recommend you visit your doctor and discuss which vaccines and medicines that you might need for your trip. Also, keep in mind that some vaccines rquire multiple shots and may need to be done over a course of time, so plan ahead. Another great course for vaccine information is the CDC website, and in addition we have compiled a list of vaccines for you to consider before your trip to Tanzania.
List of vaccines
- Routine vaccines
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Yellow Fever
Be Malaria aware
Know how to take your Malaria medication as there are different types. Some are daily and some are weekly. You must take them as prescribed by your doctor , usually the course will start before you leave home.
Bring you own
Ensure you bring enough of any other medications that you are taking and either a copy of the written prescription or a letter from your doctor certifying the need for you to take them just in case you are asked at customs. Bring any allergy medicine that you might need, such as EpiPen or antihistamine for any reaction that you might have. Please note that Tsetse fly bites can cause an allergic reaction or sever itching especially if you are sensitive to bug bites. Consult with your doctor prior to your departure about the best course of action, should you react to such a bite. Cortisone cream and/or Benadryl could be a great help if you are bitten, but please consult your doctor first.
