Family Holidays in Tanzania
With such a huge range of options available, Tanzania is the perfect holiday destination for any family. While it can be difficult for some to plan for holidays with children, Go2Tanzania specialise in meeting your needs, so it’s no trouble for us at all. We can help you find lodges with family rooms and tailor private safaris to fit your requirements.
Kids can explore tracks, dress up as maasai, visit a local school or family and see lots of very exciting animals.
We would always recommend that you choose a private safari as this enables you to tailor your game drives to suit your family. Your driver/guide will always make the days interesting as well as educational with their vast knowledge of the local wildlife and the country itself. Zanzibar and Mafia are fantastic destinations for families with their long, sunny beaches and opportunities for both play and relaxation.
Look at our lodge selection below, specially chosen for families. Facilities include catering for children, kids’ clubs and children’s pools. Baby-sitting services are also offered so that parents can enjoy some quality time alone.
