A family African Safari.


Enjoy a family safari holiday and witnessing your kids experiencing and discovering the Big Five and all the other creatures in the bush for the first time is an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime feeling. To add to this, Thanda offers something special just for kids – the Bucks & Bugs Club – where your children have the time of their lives, while you enjoy time out in the bush or relaxing at your lodge, camp or spa.

Junior Rangers course.

While you’re staying with us, your kids can join our Junior Rangers Course and spend time with one of our guides, learning the ways of the wild. They’ll learn about game tracking, game spotting, spoor identification as well as bird and plant life. At the end of their stay, they will receive a Junior Ranger Certificate from Thanda Safari.

Kid-friendly food and snacks.

We strive to be a dream destination for little nature-lovers as well as big ones. Thanda has a special menu just for kids, and we will go out of our way to produce favourite meals and to make the dining experience as exciting for your children as it is for you. Please advise us of any dietary requirements ahead of your visit.

Thanda Nannies.

Thanda’s nannies are all wonderful mothers themselves. While you are out on a game drive or taking time out, they will take care of your children (all ages) and treat them as part of the Thanda family.
