Some Kruger lodges stand out for children on safari with themed bush activities and dedicated kids’ programmes. Here we highlight our pick of the best child-friendly safari destinations.
Ngala & Kirkmans WILDchild
&Beyond Lodges' WILDchild programme is on offer at two greater Kruger destinations with a range of activities designed by each lodge and its staff. Levels of enthusiasm shown in arranging fishing, cooking and imaginative games for the kids is commendable, as are excellent guide interactions and the scrapbooks the kids keep.
Sabi Sabi EleFun centre
Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge has a fully-fledged specialist facility for the kids, the EleFun Centre. It offers daily schedules of activities tailored to two different age ranges. It provides somewhere supervised to play and swim, and to generally entertain the children, so adults can enjoy some safari time away from the family. Babysitting is available.
