New York, NY
USA

We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

A Guide to Family Safaris

Henley Vazquez

So it’s worth some research to make sure you’re choosing the right lodge, particularly when traveling with children. Most families head to South Africa and Namibia, which offer malaria-free or low-malaria reserves, easier in-country transportation, the Big Five and super lux and kid-friendly lodges. But there are still enough lodging choices to make our heads spin. Paula Franklin, a New York mom who has over a dozen safaris under her belt, breaks it down for us.
