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.

Family Holiday to Botswana, South Africa & Zambia
We had an outstanding vacation in Cape Town and on safari at several camps which will remain as one of our favourite trips anywhere in the world!
Experiencing a safari had been on our list for years and although we had received some advice and done some research, we found being on safari was a singular, immersive and very absorbing experience.

Unbelievable experience. From beginning to end, we all had the most
wonderful time - the friendly staff, the game viewing, the service, the food -

with a smile.

Officially the best family trip ever!
Family Holiday to Botswana & Zambia
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.
Family Holiday to South Africa & Zambia
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…
Family Holiday to Botswana, Mauritius, South Africa & Zambia
Fantastic Santuary locations with generally outstanding service and heartwarming African hospitality, breathtaking locations. Full score only let down as a result of problem and unpleasant experience with 1 manager.
Great break. amazing sights, high standard accommodation and treatment through out.
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.
Outstanding and life affirming.
