A Safari with kids. Where to go?

Every travel guide will tell you that the Ngorongoro Crater is also referred to as the eighth wonder of the world, and every brochure will tell you that Zanzibar has the most magnificent beaches, but if you want to know which rocks lions prefer for their afternoon naps, or which palm tree offers the best shade to enjoy a drink from a coconut? To find out, you will need to turn to locals who know the country like the back of their hands – locals like us. What’s more, we have children too. We know what children want.

Tanzania Safari with Kids
Trip of a lifetime with Makasa
Makasa organized a beautiful safari for our family group of 6 (ranging in age from 25-75). Selma was responsive and flexible during the planning process, attending to every detail. We feel that we got excellent value.

Great family experience with Makasa

The whole trip was very well thought-out put together. From the different places we stayed to the children’s car chairs for our two little companions of 2 and 4. We had a very pleasant journey thanks to Makasa.

Cabin crew, take your seats

Several airlines have scheduled flights to Tanzania. KLM, Ethiopian Airlines, Qatar Airways, and Turkish Airlines offer daily flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport. Kilimanjaro International Airport is situated in northern Tanzania between the cities of Arusha and Moshi. Moshi is home to Makasa. Located at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, close to the main wildlife parks, it lies at a driving distance of 45 minutes from the airport. One of our friendly attendants will be there to greet you and take you to your hotel. Welcome to Tanzania!

Crossing the Serengeti in a private jeep with the family

You will travel in a Land Cruiser seating 5 to 7 people, driven by one of our experienced guides – heading for the world’s most famous wildlife parks such as Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, and, of course, the Serengeti. You will feel as if you were stepping into the world of National Geographic. Your car is provided with a special interior with a roof that pops up, allowing you to stand up straight to film or take pictures. You will be amazed at the wildlife you will get to see here. Remember to pack the binoculars for the children!

A visit to the Maasai

In the Maasai Lodge, you will meet members of one of the most colourful and impressive tribes of Africa, the famous Maasai. You will stay the night in a boma (village) with a breathtaking view of the vast savannah plains of the Maasai land. Take a nature walk with your children – or put them on a donkey for a thrilling ride. Another option they might like is to take them to throw spears with real Maasai warriors – or you can do both! At night, you will dine on roasted goat by the fire – or enjoy another great dish, as you prefer. There are lodges for two as well as family lodges for families with young children.

Sleeping in family tents

What could be more exciting than staying the night in the wilderness? Safari nights tend to be a very special experience. Visitors usually spend at least a few of these nights in so-called tented camps. Other than that they have the heavy-duty canvas canopy in common, ordinary tents pale in comparison with these luxury glamping tents. The floors are made of wood and the interior design and particularly the beds are incredibly comfortable and romantic. The tents all have excellent private bathroom facilities. The biggest attraction, however, is the incomparable safari atmosphere. In the mornings, at breakfast, you can have great fun trying to imitate the animal sounds that you heard during the night. Guides are often very good at this. Now, was that a lion’s or a hyena’s cry?
Tanzania Zanzibar with Kids

Sun-soaked Zanzibar

Children will always want to go to the beach. What a lucky coincidence that sunny Zanzibar happens to lie so close off the coast! Beautiful Zanzibar, with its unparalleled pearly white beaches leading to the azure Indian Ocean, can best be described as a small paradise on earth. It is without a doubt the most delightful place to relax after an exciting safari. Take a refreshing dive to wash off the desert dust! You can go skin-diving, swim with dolphins or take a boat tour in an authentic dhow. A visit to the capital is definitely worth your while. The picturesque Stone Town is the epitome of the romantic beauty of the island. Two smaller islands are worth mentioning as well: Pemba and Mafia, each with their own, unique character.

Great local company
We were fortunate to have Humphrey as our guide. He has an excellent knowledge of the flora and fauna. My 11 yr old son remarked that he had learned more during the safari than he had learned the past year in school. This was truly a life-changing vacation.

Amazing Safari experience
Makasa allows a family to have a safari experience that meets their needs. It was great to be able to travel with just our family of five - and see so much of Northern Tanzania. We absolutely loved the safari and have lots of great memories. I highly recommend Makasa Safaris.

WOW, just WOW
Makasa is a top-notch company that offered a spectacular Safari with a personal touch. We have 2 kids ages 8 and 10 and they matched a guide that also had kids and Kaleby could not have been better! He was a joy to be around. A lifetime memory complete.

This is just an example

The trip described above is just an example; a marvellous example, indeed, but there are many more options. You can choose to have more safari and less sun, or vice versa. Whether you want a longer or a shorter stay, simpler accommodations or more luxury, everything is possible. Please let us know what you want and we will be glad to arrange an itinerary that suits your every desire. Welcome to Makasa!
