FAMILY & EDUCATIONAL JOURNEYS
One of our most popular safaris is the “multi-generational family safari”. Whether families are separated by generation or geography, coming together on a safari to Africa is an educational, life-changing AND unifying experience. One sure way to get grandparents and grandchildren “speaking the same language” again is to take the family into the bush away from cell phones, computer games and material distractions! It is a privilege to watch the rekindling and strengthening of family connections around a camp fire under African skies!
The impact that a wilderness experience has on children, is unimaginable! Not only can it influence their future, but it has the potential to help them understand nature and ultimately respect it. We have found that children as young as six or seven years old are very receptive to their safari experience.
Travelling with Fausto can further enhance the experince and we have the proven knowledge and expertise to plan and pace the perfect family safari, taking into account the varied ages and interests of the group.
We have now been to Africa with our 3 children three times with Fausto as our guide and Josie has prepared our itineraries . Fausto's love and knowledge of Africa, its people and its beautiful wildlife combined with his incredible kindness to our children made us yearn to return to Africa again and again.
Josie is his equal in terms of planning fantastic trip itineraries. The second and third trips we took, we wanted to see both how people in Africa lived and to learn more about their cultures, the different parts of the continent, as well as get a chance to see a greater diversity of animals than on our previous trips. Our trips have included visits to Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania (including the Serengeti and Zanzibar), Kenya and Rwanda. Josie did an amazing job of balancing our goals on each of the trips and pacing them perfectly for the range of ages on our trip. We felt that every place we stayed was ideal and her knowledge of each of the regions allowed us to experience the unique highlights of each area.
I cannot speak highly enough about the two of them. Both trips were extraordinary and more than met our wildest dreams.
