Young backpackers can experience the thrill of adventure and the beauty of African wildlife while travelling through the continent at extremely cost-effective rates. This trip includes exciting experiences, such as safari drives, hot air balloon rides, and white-water rafting, as well as visits to renowned national parks and wildlife reserves.

Backpackers will have the chance to spot iconic animals like The Big 5 and other fascinating creatures like gorillas and chimpanzees. They will also have the opportunity to explore the wilderness on foot, go on a night safari, and even camp in the wilderness. In addition to the wildlife, backpackers can also learn about Africa's rich cultural heritage through visits to ancient ruins, historical sites, and cultural activities like traditional dance and music workshops, cooking traditional dishes, and local crafts making.

By staying in budget-friendly accommodations, backpackers can make the most of their adventure at extremely inexpensive rates without breaking the bank.


  • Take some entertainment for down time in safari camps – smartphone games, iPad apps, books, colouring stuff, playing cards, etc.
  • Pack a small rucksack for each child to use as a day pack, great for taking in vehicles or planes.
  • Be adventurous, children are more robust than you think and families often really enjoy simple fly camping and walking.
  • Don’t rush – we advise at least three nights per safari camp – and don’t try to do too much on one family holiday.
