All about the 7 Days-Tanzania Family Safari.

Perfect family vacation packages to Africa are not that easy to come by. They are not the type of packages that you simply pick and book. By family safari vacations, we mean adults (parents and/or grand parents),  taking an African safari  vacation with children, or even grand children.

As the adult planning and putting together the details of the safari trip, you might be tempted to think that whatever you find interesting and exciting would similarly interest the kids. That may or may not be the case. Children, depending on the age, can be extremely inpatient besides getting bored so easily. If not planned well, safaris might turn out to be long hours of driving on dusty tracks  with moody, grumpy kids who begin looking forward to the end of the trip even before the trip is mid-way through.

However, with proper planning, you can get it right and end up with a very rewarding family safari as a holiday. What is required is careful planning and the willingness to compromise on some things.

The best Family Safari in Tanzania, giving your family an opportunity to discover the beauty of Africa’s famed Serengeti National park, Ngorongoro crater and the Great Rift valley escarpment on a short adventure family safari with your own private guide. Game viewing by a private safari vehicle while searching out for the ‘Big 5’ animals like rhinos, lions, leopards, elephants and buffalo, plus birds and other animals like giraffes, hippos, and cheetahs roaming around in their natural habitats.

Simba Lodges

Tarangire Simba Lodge

Welcome to Tarangire Simba Lodge, the newest addition to our portfolio. Tarangire National Park is a gem on the northern safari circuit. Teeming with wildlife, especially in the dry season, this area is a safari-goers dream. Located near the new Sangaiwe Gate of Tarangire National Park.

  • Each room has a torch (flashlight) and umbrella for you to use during your stay with us and there is a power strip to charge your devices.
  •  There’s a secure safe for your valuables.
  •  As the solar lighting may be dimmer than you’re used to, we highly recommend you bring a headlamp or ‘book light’ for reading in bed at night.
  • Due to our solar electrical system it’s not possible to use a hair dryer at Tarangire Simba.
  • We kindly request that you don’t attempt to plug in a hair dryer as in all likelihood it will blow the system resulting in loss of power to the entire lodge.
  • We can only accommodate CPAP (sleep apnea machines) if they run on battery power, as we don’t have 24-hour electricity.
