TTaking your children on safari is an amazing adventure for the whole family to enjoy together. South Africa, in particular, is perfect for a family safari as it has many child-friendly and malaria-free reserves.

Top malaria-free reserves for families include Madikwe and Pilanesberg in the North West; Sanbona in the Western Cape; and Shamwari in the Eastern CapeSanbona, in particular, is great for young kids and it is just three hours from Cape Town, while the Pilanesberg in the North West is not far from Johannesburg.

To make sure you get the most out of the bush experience, there are few things you can do to make the trip easy to do and safe for the whole family.

Stock up on snacks and things to nibble on (just remember bathroom breaks are scarce).

WWhile it may be a good idea to consider keeping your game drives short to match your kids’ attention spans, you may sometimes end up cruising for a little longer than expected. This could lead to very hungry children. So, stock up on nuts, biltong (a South African speciality of dried cured meat) and dried fruit.
