Why is Zambia such a fabulous family holiday destination?

Zambia Family Safari Ntanda Ventures
  • You can feed rescued elephants, go horse riding and take helicopter flips over one of Africa's most famous sites in Victoria Falls, Livingstone.

  • Learn identification of animal “poop” (the all time favourite for kids on safari), tracking skills of animal spoor, make bush bread, beat an African drum, bow and arrow making, rope making, star gazing, entomology and seed jewelry making at Kaingu in Kafue National Park or try your hand at fishing in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Spend your evenings around a campfire while learning African tales that leave you charmed by Africa all over again!

  • You don't have to worry about anything as we will take care of all the arrangements for this ultimate safari vacation so all you have to do is show up, smile, and let us take it from there while you enjoy every second of this unforgettable family safari trip together.

  • Zambia is a wonderful, affordable destination for families looking to go on safari. We can tailor your holiday safari with stunning luxury private safari houses that offer flexibility or book one of our child friendly budget lodges.

  • The bush is a playground and schoolroom for all ages. A family-friendly African Safari creates the ideal condition to bond over "once in a lifetime" experiences. Zambia offers rich wildlife, scenery, culture and adventure activities that appeal to everyone. Watch your child grow in leaps and bounds as they interact with our highly qualified, knowledgeable guides. A multi-generational safari holiday is a special experience that you'll always treasure.

  • Look for the small five, green five, ugly five or the Big Four in South Luangwa National Park. Your family can watch baby elephants splash in a waterhole, listen to the call of lions after dark and hear the shrill cries of a Bush baby at night. Visit a local school, learn to make jewelry from animal snares or indulge at the Bush-Spa.

 Ntanda Ventures Kids Safari - We Do Things Differently 

  • In Zambia, wildlife conservation projects are a part of our ethos and the reason that the animals (elephants, leopards, lions, wild dog, giraffe, antelope, cheetah) continue to thrive in their natural surroundings.

  • We personally check out all the family options on our regular famil trips as we understand not every family has the same requirements. 

  • For first-timers Zambia is the perfect one-stop African safari destination. We recommend you stop to explore and discover the hidden gems, bush secrets and the friendly Zambian people instead of rushing from one place to another.

  • Finding the right family safari lodge is the best reason to use a local operator. Ntanda Ventures specialize in Zambia and with our firsthand knowledge, it will cost you the same price if not less. A DIY Safari often comes with unexpected extras. We like to talk to our guests - your holiday is as special as your family. 

  • There are many options from en-suite tents, chalets, luxury family suites and luxury hideaways. Zambia doesn’t have large bustling resorts in the bush and this is why Zambia is known as the authentic African safari destination in the heart of Africa.

A spectacular selection of en-suite tents, chalets, luxury family suites and luxury hideaways.
