Our family-friendly safari trips take the guesswork out of planning, so you can maximise quality time with loved ones on your tailor-made tour of Southern Africa.
Scintilla’s family-friendly safaris showcase the very best of Southern Africa with the additional flexibility and amusements that families often need. From child-accustomed accommodation to fun-filled adventures and educational activities, each family safari tour is uniquely tailored to your interests, and adapted to the age and gender of children, to keep little ones entertained and parents relaxed.
Get into the spirit of adventure on our luxurious 12-night tour of Namibia, where wild activities and breathtaking scenery will excite explorers of all ages.
Climb up (and race down!) some of the world’s highest free-standing sand dunes in Sossusvlei; spot the Big Five from a specially modified, pop-top game-viewing vehicle in Etosha National Park; explore Swakopmund’s desert surrounds by quad bike, and learn about the ageless landscape and her inhabitants from an expert family safari guide who will inspire a love for Namibia and bring out the wild adventurer in you all.
Treat your family to a 10-night highlights tour package of some of Southern Africa’s most iconic landmarks: Table Mountain, Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta.
Beginning in Cape Town’s Cape Grace Hotel on the V&A Waterfront, young guests receive the VIK (Very Important Kids) treatment in the form of daily story time, gingerbread decorating, and a special children’s menu, to keep kids – and parents – happy after a day exploring the Mother City.
From there, feel the wild-water spray and hear the roar of Zimbabwe’s majestic Victoria Falls, where thrill-seekers can enjoy water-based activities in the adventure capital of the world, before closing off your family holiday with a traditional tented safari in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
Our two Cape Town, Kruger and Mozambique family adventures answer your call for the wild, the cultural and the tranquil, tailored to suit your family and holiday style. Enjoy an exclusive 13-night tour in private homes and lodges, where the space is all yours and the focus is all on you, your family and your own schedule. With a full complement of personal staff on offer, from butlers to babysitters, and full control over your itinerary, it’s the ultimate way to experience Southern Africa without other guests in your way.
If you prefer to hand over the planning reins to those who know the areas best, our 11-night ultimate city, bush and beach adventure is an adventure and activity-filled itinerary for the whole family to enjoy.
Explore the sights, hotspots and sea life of Cape Town with an intuitive family guide; experience the thrill of spotting wildlife in their natural environment and learning about nature and conservation from an expert safari guide in the Kruger National Park; and spend the rest of your holiday relaxing on the powder-white beaches of Mozambique, a picture-perfect paradise of warm Indian Ocean waters and tropical islands, waiting to be explored.
Take your loved ones on an unforgettable journey from the Western Cape to the wild, malaria-free Madikwe reserve. Our 8-night family adventure tour treats you and your brood to private, tailored tours around Cape Town, followed by farm activities like fetching eggs for breakfast and a garden scavenger hunt while parents unwind in the Winelands, before closing off your holiday with a private safari in the Eastern Cape, complete with your own safari villa, guide and vehicle to enjoy the wonders of the bushveld.
Or enjoy the flexibility of Scintilla’s self-drive 12-night Ultimate South African Trip, where you can explore the scenery between South Africa’s Mother City, Winelands and Whale Route at your own pace, before flying across the country to your Sabi Sands safari.
