Whilst adults enjoy the many hours driving through the open African savannah plains in quest of the many species of fauna and flora, we recognize that young children tire easily and become bored on 2-3 hours of game viewing in the confines of a safari vehicle. This safari is specially designed for families with children aged 4-16 years. It includes a dedicated full-time children educational and entertainment programmes, ‘Adventurer Club’.
The Adventurer’s Club's ultimate mission is to give young visitors a valuable lesson in the vitality and fragility of the African Wilderness, and to teach natural appreciation for life. The range of subject matter is as diverse as it is fascinating – from mammal habits and habitats, to the migration of birds and butterflies, the use of medicinal plants to environmental quizzes and treasure hunts, traditional dances, games and handicrafts.
