Zambia Family Holidays

Explore 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.

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.

So positive...all the attention to detail was appreciated, and everything worked well. We had such a good time. We felt the first two camps were the better of the three...poor Savuti was so dry, so there was not much game there.
