Zambia Family Holidays

Zambia is one of our favourite 'off the beaten track' family holiday destinations, offering a truly private and memorable experience and for the right type of family. Affectionately known as the 'Real Africa' Zambia is home to the legendary African walking safari, Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi River and abundant wildlife. Zambia is the perfect destination for those families with a sense of adventure and a love of nature.

Highlights

  • An un-commercial and remote safari for adventurous families
  • Small lodges and camps with personal attention
  • Safari houses catering specifically for families
  • The largest concentration of hippos in Africa
  • A wide diversity of activities from canoeing to fishing, boating, walking and game drives
  • Beautiful and diverse scenery from meandering rivers and superb woodland forests to grassland plains
  • Adventure activities at Victoria Falls
  • Easily combined with Botswana, South Africa, Mozambique or Malawi

The diversity of experience in Zambia is enough to keep even the most travelled of families interested. From the adrenalin-filled adventure activities on offer at the Victoria Falls, to the walking safaris on offer at the South Luangwa (teens only) and the boating and canoeing on offer along the Zambezi River, no member of the family will be bored.

Zambia will almost certainly provide an authentic experience of Africa for your family. The remote camps and lodges in this part of the world don't know the meaning of the words 'mass tourism', and this makes them perfect for families in that they are small enough to be flexible and accommodating whilst providing personal attention. A few will also provide specific children's activity programmes. There are also a series of 'safari houses' which cater particularly for families and provide the family with their own guide, specific activities and chefs.

Your dedicated Mahlatini family holiday specialist will be an expert in Zambia and as a result will recommend only accommodation and regions which will provide the best experience for your family. Where possible this bespoke service will extend to planning any additional extra activities or family surprises which will make this family holiday one of the most unforgettable.

Stanley's camp in Okavango delta and tau pan in kalahari both hardly had any animals, it was very disappointing especially for our kids. The people that worked there are super nice though.

We had an amazing trip - we enjoyed all of the places we visited but the highlights were Toka Leya and Monwana. Those accommodations were amazing and Victoria Falls and Thornybush Game Reserve were spectacular. However, all of the places we visited offered something different. From Capetown to Stellenbosch, and Livingstone to Thornybush, none of the experiences were redundant and each fit together into a very nice, complete…
