Travel with Children

Kruger is very family friendly, and it is ideally set up for taking children with you on safari. The rest camps are all fenced, almost all have swimming pools and restaurants (with most offering special children’s meals), and several have play areas. Berg-en-dal, Letaba, Skukuza, Satara and Shingwedzi also have regular evening wildlife movies (usually Monday to Saturday evenings at 7pm) that are good for all ages, and Letaba has an interesting elephant museum. Camp shops, however, generally don’t stock nappies (diapers), processed baby food or formula, so bring these items with you.

Children under the age of 12 are not allowed on SANParks wildlife walks, and those under six are prohibited from the park's wildlife drives. Age of acceptance varies for both activities and accommodation at private lodges.
