Now that the bustle of the holidays has passed, it is time to start planning summer family vacations. What better way to make memories together as a family and discover a unique destination, than a safari in Africa.
When it is summer in the northern hemisphere, countries in Africa are experiencing cool but mild winters which provide excellent opportunities for game viewing and exploration.
Offering four uniquely different locations, Singita can provide a family safari that will meet the needs of grandparents, parents and children of all ages. Hot air balloon in Tanzania while viewing the migration – and reserve the four bedroom private retreat at Singita Sasakwa with a heated infinity plunge pool and each room with en-suite bathroom. This retreat also contains a two bedroom nanny flat for extra convenience. Or plan a trip to Zimbabwe to stay at Singita Pamushana – only six suites and a private retreat tucked cosily into a rocky outcrop overlooking a breathtaking dam and 105 000 acres of private wilderness. Spend the days on game drives, viewing ancient rock art sites; enjoy tiger fishing on the dam and take canoe trips at sunset.
If South Africa is the destination of choice, Singita not only offers family suites at Ebony Lodge and Boulders Lodge but also Singita Castleton Camp provides an excellent option for big family gatherings. A luxury homestead with wide verandahs, expansive lounge and dining areas, and six rooms suitable for up to twelve guests at any one time. Castleton Camp also boasts its own kitchen, chef and private guide. A perfectly relaxed atmosphere prevades and schedules are completely tailored to match the natural ebb and flow of the day.
