Jemma, Thanks for the reminders about how perfect Londolozi is for families. We can say from experience that the experiences with our children were magical. We hope be taking our grandchildren to Londolozi in just a couple of years!

That’s wonderful to hear Michael and Terri. We look forward to meeting your grandchildren one day.

Hi Jemma, the experience that children can get by going on a safari, seeing the animals and interacting with the Rangers and Trackers will give a child a new approach to a live safari. The Londolozi team , go out of there way to make every experience a memorable experience. I’m sure each child that has been on a safari at Londolozi, will witness to the renowned place Londolozi is.

Jemma, this sounds like a wonderful family adventure, thanks for sharing.

As someone who doesn’t have a family that includes kids, I can certainly agree that children over six will have a great time whether participating in game drives, or not. I’ve witnessed first hand the excitement of a nine year old returning from a fishing adventure, having caught her first fish! Also, what fun for a child to make a plaster cast of a paw print – even I would like to do that!! As a kid at heart, each safari is unique and I can hardly wait to return again!

I have taken three of my grandchildren on great safaris. They enjoyed this wonderful experience.
However, I think that six might be a bit young. Do you require families with young children to have their private car? Or do you put two groups of guests, let’s say an adult couple and a family with kids or one child into the same car?

Hi Christa, it’s wonderful to hear that your grandchildren enjoyed their safari – I’m sure it is a fond memory of theirs. If you are booked to stay with us at Tree Camp, Private Granite Suites or Pioneer, there will be no children on your vehicle as these camps do not allow children (unless Pioneer Camp is exclusively booked out). If staying at Founders or Varty Camp, it is at our Head Ranger’s discretion to allocate guests to vehicles – this depends on many factors. If you have any other questions please get in touch with reservations@londolozi.co.za and they will be happy to explain this process to you in more detail.
