Having just sent Lauren, Nigel and their two kids off to Zanzibar for the finale of their trip we thought we'd go over how their little family safari went.

The trip started off with a stay at Maasai Lodge on the slopes of Mt Meru. The unique experience of Maasai Lodge combines both Maasai traditions with comfortable living, making it perfect for both children and adults.

Lauren, Nigel spread their safari over a week in order to fit in enough breaks and stops for the kids. The itinerary included Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Northern and central Serengeti. They saw lions, cheetahs with their cubs, a rhino, elephants, wilderbeest and much more! In Northern Serengeti they were lucky enough to witness the migration of animals across the Mara River!

Shadows of Africa, can cater for any group including safaris with young kids (see our suggestions for families here: 'Safari with Children - Family Safaris in East Africa'). We also love adding something special to any special occasions that occur during your time with Shadows of Africa. Lauren and Nigel's youngest turned 5 during their safari and celebrated with a delicious looking birthday cake!
