An African family holiday is a great way to reconnect with the kids after the busy lives we all lead nowadays; without the distractions, you normally have when at home. Multi-generational travel to Africa is becoming more and more popular and Africa A-Z will make this a trip to remember.
Qualify for special discounts as you book into exclusive use accommodation. Or if it’s just a small family; that is no issue as we have great ideas to make this African family holiday truly special.
We’ll be able to advise you on whether there are special facilities for your kids or grand kids based on their ages. And of course; their interests. Great care is taken to ensure the safety of the children. Whether on safari or at a beach resort.
Grandparents, moms, dads, and precious grandchildren will all love being on a safari together in the African bush; on a safari or a houseboat on the Chobe in Botswana, Jozini in South Africa, or Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe. Else, how about relaxation on the beach or some island hopping in Seychelles! The choices are limitless so book your family holiday in Africa today.
We recommend that if you are traveling with a child that does not share your surname, in order to minimize the possibility of disruption to your travel plans, you travel with documentation that proves your relationship to the child. As well as documentation that proves you have permission to travel with them. We cannot be held responsible should you or any member of your traveling party be denied entry to a country due to non-compliance with these requirements. Should you require further specific information ahead of travel, please consult the travel advice produced by the government of your home jurisdiction, as well as that of the government that issued the passport and/or visa you intend to travel under.
