The family adventures into Africa take in relaxed, gentler adventures, where the safari is an entire learning experience. Among these family travel options are: -

Walking in the hills, visiting game parks, the excitement of a safari through coffee and tea plantations, following wildlife trails, experiencing heritage villages, reviving ancient cultural arts and crafts.

All experiences aid in a special bonding, making the travel experience a memory cherished by the family forever. Special care is taken in designing the tour by keeping in mind the needs of the parents and children alike. Victoria safaris take into account the age group, physical fitness and details of health and safety. If on an activity tour, we would provide equipment for children sizes and additional staff would accompany the family along the safari, keeping a higher ratio, thus ensuring safety and minimizing risk and interpreting and understanding the local culture and nature effectively.

Victoria Safaris has several itineraries suitable for your family's visit to East Africa-Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. Our family tourism adventures are quite adverse; they include Family Accommodations, Family Tours and Family Safaris;

Family Accommodation
When it comes to family travel you want to open your kids’ eyes to new cultures and ideas by taking them to different countries and destinations. You can stay with you family in Luxurious Hotels, Lodges and Camps. But if you won’t compromise their safety by staying in hotels, lodges or camps in unsafe parts of town—and your budget is limited. Relax. Victoria Safaris has several alternatives as to how the best family travel is usually the least expensive. For instance;

Family Home stays
Victoria safaris will arrange for your family to stay in a home whether you want to stay in the city, beach or in the rural village areas around Lake Victoria or any where you may wish your family to stay at Homestays is ideal for families. Instead of paying a few hundred dollars each night for cramped hotel rooms, we will arrange your family stay in a roomy house that may well come with bikes, toys, and even a car—while your hosts are house-sitting for you and watching over your property. Home stays also offers great opportunities for meeting the neighbors.

Family Budget Camping
In Africa, camping usually means crowding into a small tent in the rain, swatting mosquitoes, and cooking over a fire somewhere off in the woods. In Kenya, Victoria safaris will arrange for your Budget camping in the game parks, wildlife sanctuaries by setting up a tent and providing a cook for your family or alternatively stay in a lodge on a budget safari. You will be given family attention and security all the way. With Victoria Safaris, you can rent a 2- or 3-bedroom tent or bungalow, complete with kitchen facilities, and relax while your kids explore the playground within the campsite. We Prefer Lodge safari than to camping for family tours because of the kids.

Family Home Rentals
You can rent a home with the help of Victoria safaris for the period you will be in East Africa-Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It’s still cheaper and roomier than a hotel, and if you enquire directly to us for your chosen location, you’ll save a bundle over renting through a "Real Estate agency.” In our experience, direct rentals can often cost as little as $250-$400 per week.

Youth Hostels
East Africa, Youth hostels have public lounges and kitchens where guests can gather and mingle. Yet you don’t have to stay in dormitories, listening to the snores of strangers and worrying about your kids. Most hostels now offer family rooms for four to six people, so you can save money over hotels and meet plenty of fellow wanderers.


Family Cottages
Family cottages come handy for those who want to maintain family life while travelling. You will rent a family cottage with all the facilities as the ones you have in your home .These include; living rooms, beds and linen, kitchen equipment and Fridges, T.V, sofa sets and any other items you will require. You will buy your foods from the many supermarkets in the country and make your traditional meals as you require. Just as you make meals at home. Provision of a cook is optional at an extra cost. You will have a tour van and driver for your tours and travels.

Family Off-Season Travel
You’ll save a bundle by avoiding high season travel periods and you’ll get to interact with more locals instead of mixing with others from other countries of the world rather than the locals. The Hotels, Game Parks and Beaches won’t be crowded and you won’t be waiting for services in the dining halls.
