How we keep children happy on a Zambia family holiday.

When you are traveling with Ntanda Ventures we make sure you will be assisted by specialist guides that arrange the activities, tailored to your child's interests and age. Arrange fun animal spotting assignments and make sure that Zambia's game drives, canoe safaris, bush sleep-outs, walking safari, and fishing will be fun for the whole family. We can select lodges that have kid friendly menus and are able to look after children if parents want some time off. To keep the holiday balanced, we suggest to mix activities and take time off for swimming in refreshing pools, learn about the animals you see in the safari libraries of lodges, relax in the lounge areas and participate in laid-back cultural excursions. 

From what age can children go on safari ?

We recommend to take children on a safari to Zambia from 6 years old. The majority of Zambia's best camps and game drive experiences have age restrictions for younger children under the age of six.

The following safari activities have an age restriction of 12 years:

  • Canoe safaris

  • Bush sleep-outs

  • Walking safari 

The benefit of Zambia for children is that the country is very peaceful and safe.
