Africa is perhaps the ultimate adventure travel destination and your kids will love it! From running down sand dunes in the desert, to spotting elephants and lions on a self-drive safari, to jumping into waves crashing onto pristine beaches, and all whilst camping under the African stars. And before you ask, yes – you can do a safari with young kids!
We spent 4 months in 2018 traversing Sub-Saharan Africa in a Land Rover Defender with our two boys (aged 3 and 4). We had dipped out toe into Africa with kids previously on travels to Morocco. But this trip took us to the heart of this continent… starying in South Africa and Mozambique, then on to Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia, and finishing with Namibia before returning our Land Rover back to South Africa.
