What to Consider When Planning a Safari

What to Consider When Planning a Safari for your Family

tumblr p3um4mxUor1snegd3o1 540 What to Consider When Planning a Safari

Looking for ideas for your next family holiday? Forget Disney World why not consider something fun and educational at the same time.  Take your children miles away from TV, video games and computers and get back to nature with an African safari with Nature Bound Africa.

Not only will children will be exposed to incredible wildlife but also a vastly different culture. Imagine your children seeing a magnificent Maasai warrior for the first time or learning to make a fire from wood and stone! What may appear to be a daunting process, planning a safari for the whole family is not as difficult as it may first appear.

Here are some things to consider before booking:

1.Countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania have more experience in dealing with families so they should possibly be your first port of call.

2. The safari peak season is June to Oct. If you are looking to save a few pennies and you are tied to travelling during the European school holidays (ie the peak season), consider visiting Rwanda or Uganda which are the exception – having their low season during these months.

3.If you are worried about long flights consider East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania) where the flights are shorter (around 8 hrs from Europe).  In saying that, an overnight flight and with the time difference either 1 or 2 hours (depending on time of year) there is no jet lag to contend with.

4. Not all safari lodges take children or allow them onto game drives. You may need to consider a private vehicle or babysitting services. Nature Bound Africa know’s the lodges which are child friendly offering specially tailored child-centred activities which will give parents a break and provide endless hours of fun and learning for the children.

5. Consider which East African countries require vaccinations and malaria tablets.

6. Don’t plan for too long on safari, if you are away for 2 weeks combine your safari with a beach break in the likes of Zanzibar or Mombasa. Most of the resorts or hotels on the beach offer kid’s clubs, brilliant activities and water sports as well as family rooms.

7. Nature Bound Africa has experience in planning family holidays to East Africa in order that it is expertly organized.

African Safari Adventure on Any Budget

African Safari Adventure on Any Budget

There is no denying that African Safari Adventure can be a very expensive travel destination.
There are many amazing luxury and comfort tours that can give you an unforgettable, high-class experience. However, you may not know that there are also budget-friendly trips targeted at young travellers looking for an African Safari Adventure on Any Budget.
Sure, your money doesn’t stretch as far as it would in South-East Asia or South America, but it’s worth it for the trip of a lifetime–which you’ll realize the first time you see a majestic elephant from as close as 15 feet away. So, my advice for young, budget travellers is to see Africa by going on an overland trip or joining a group for camping safari adventure.
This involves travelling in a large overlanding truck and staying in national parks through participation camping, which requires putting up your own tent and helping out with food preparation using the truck’s mobile kitchen.

5 Things You Need To Know About Maasai Culture Before Visiting

5 Things You Need To Know About Maasai Culture Before Visiting

The Maasai are a semi-nomadic tribe of people who have lived in the region of Southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania for hundreds of years, and are easily identifiable by their distinctive traditional red style of dress, ornate beaded jewelry, and lively spirit. For many travelers, visiting a Maasai village to experience their culture and traditional way of life is a highlight of their trip. But there are a few things you should know about the Maasai culture before you leave home.

The Maasai Greeting

The typical greeting between two Maasai people would be “Kasserian Ingera” which in Swahili translates to “How are the children?”. This demonstrates the high importance that the Maasai people place on their family, and the well-being of the next generation. The Maasai people are traditionally a nomadic society, the main source of wealth being the cattle that they raise. However, a man with many cattle and few children is none-the-less seen to be poor.
