Few things are worse than trying to enjoy a family holiday someplace where the atmosphere is not fully family-friendly. Lodges like Lukimbi Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park welcome travellers with children aged two and above, and have a special children’s programme to keep the young set entertained. In the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge has a custom-built children’s facility known as The EleFun Centre, which teaches children to appreciate the wilderness, with plenty of fun thrown in. Other lodges that accommodate families are Fitzpatrick’s at Jock Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park and Shamwari Riverdene Lodge in the Eastern Cape.
