Multigeneration Safari Family Vacation

Inspirational safari family holiday to South Africa

This multigeneration family safari or small group safari is combines two safari experiences in South Africa’s Waterberg region. Both offer a unique opportunity to enjoy the wild spaces of Africa and spend time with family and friends. First up, the group will stay at Maratara Founders Camp in the Big 5 Marataba Contractual Park. The activities are flexible and designed with you in mind.

From tracking wildlife to ice-cold G&Ts at sunset, counting elephants to laidback boat trips on the Matlabas, your Marataba experience is entirely up to you. The experiences are interpretive and interactive and will be led by your own private conservation guide, with vehicle, for maximum flexibility. Then 4 nights will be spent together at Ant’s Hill Lodge, offering out-of-the-ordinary safari experiences from horseriding and mountain biking, to exploring on foot alongside rhino. The lodge’s home-from-home atmosphere will ensure that your group truly relaxes together.
