The safaris that deliver wild encounters for the whole family

Aardvark Safaris create tailor-made wildlife trips in Africa to thrill all ages.

Aardvark Safaris have been crafting tailor-made family safari and beach holidays to Africa and the Indian Ocean islands for the past 24 years. The excitement of introducing children to the wonders of Africa is infectious. From watching their faces as they get up close to an elephant or learning about the plight of the rhino, to playing football in a local village or sleeping out under the stars, it’s an unforgettable experience.

Families and friends can trek to the hills of central Kenya with a camel train carrying the supplies, stay in private houses on the banks of the Luangwa River in Zambia and ride horses across the water channels of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Older teenagers can spot gorillas in the mountains of Rwanda or fly and flop on the islands of the Seychelles and Maldives, where the more adventurous can learn to scuba dive, kite surf or go bone fishing.

A year-round destination with minimal time-zone difference, the continent has so much variety that you can purely safari or combine wildlife with visits to Victoria Falls, Cape Town or the oldest desert in the world. African holidays broaden horizons through discovering different cultural traditions and the importance of conservation, fostering a love for nature with hands-on activities run by engaging guides, whether that is following animal tracks or exploring on a mokoro.

The experienced team at Aardvark Safaris listens to your wishes and offers impartial advice based on first-hand experience. Having travelled extensively with their own children to Africa, staff members know what works when it comes to planning a family safari.

With an incomparable little black book of contacts, a dedicated concierge team on hand 24/7 and all the logistics taken care of, booking a holiday is simple and secure. No wonder the majority of clients come from word-of-mouth and return year after year.
