Custom Travel: Taking Kids on Safari
South Africa: Mont Rochelle
On arrival in Cape Town, you're met by your driver, who also assists you with customs, immigration and your luggage. Transfer to Mont Rochelle, a stunning 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard in Franschhoek, a charming town in the Cape Winelands, considered the food and wine capital of South Africa. Settle into the Manor House, your exclusive four-bedroom villa. Your children have their own room in the Manor House, expertly curated kid-friendly menus and access to a fully-stocked game console. Together, you can opt to play a variety of pool- and garden-side games, picnic on the grounds, monopolize the private game room, or plan horseback excursions and bike rides into town.
South Africa: Ulusaba
Travel to Ulusaba via Johannesburg on two privately chartered or two commercial flights we’ve arranged for you and your family. Ulusaba, Sir Richard Branson’s private safari game reserve, is located in South Africa’s world-renowned Sabi Sand Reserve. In between signature morning and afternoon game drives, which are limited to kids six years of age or older, you and your children can also enjoy a variety of immersive activities, such as treasure hunts, traditional South African games, junior ranger training, community visits and cooking classes.
Kenya: Mahali Mzuri
Mahali Mzuri—‘beautiful place’ in Swahili—is Sir Richard Branson’s Kenyan luxury safari camp. It is perfectly situated within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, which is part of the famed Maasai Mara National Reserve. Due to its prime location within the conservancy, only children six years and up may stay at Mahali Mzuri, but your family will be treated to unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities including twice-daily game drives and optional walking safaris. Unwind with your children in your family tent, which is fully-stocked with a TV, games, a DVD player and a video game console. Frolic in an infinity pool, or get acquainted with Maasai life through crafting, races and jumping contests.
