Everything we do is tailor-made; our itineraries are just suggestions to give you an idea of what is possible. Please contact us so we can tailor the perfect holiday exclusively for you.

This itinerary shares many of the same features with the classic Serengeti Safari and Indian Ocean sample itinerary, but instead it uses some of the larger hotels on offer, providing excellent facilities to make sure that you will remember your holiday for a lifetime. The majority of the Holiday Architects team have children of varying ages and we know what does (and doesn’t!) work when it comes to travelling, with flexibility surrounding arrangements being key. This itinerary includes a private vehicle and driver from the beginning of your safari to the end, allowing you the freedom to do what you want and when you want; whether you’d prefer to leave later in the morning for your safari or cut short an activity, this will not be a problem.

Offering a fantastic safari experience, taking in the sights and sounds of the African bush, you will have a great chance of seeing the African big 5 (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant) and many more. At the right time of year, this itinerary can also be incorporated into witnessing the great migration. After an exciting flight from the Serengeti (it is possible to drive to a commercial airport if you prefer), you will find yourself on postcard perfect beaches with palm trees swinging in the background and a plethora of activities available. Whilst this itinerary suggests larger hotels, everything we do is tailor-made and we are very happy to work on your arrangements in order for your little ones to enjoy the greater range of facilities.
