This programme is fantastic and has both a luxury and rustic version. Truth be told, the children don't notice the difference as they are so absorbed in the activities.

The Young Explorers safari is a specially designed safari which offers families the opportunity to discover the wonders of the African wilderness – together.

One of the special attractions of this safari is its exclusivity. Each family has the use of a private six-bedded camp, a professional guide, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper and dedicated Mokoro guides. It literally allows guests to explore the bush at their leisure, while never losing sight of the fact that being in the wilderness is also about having fun!

Parents can enjoy some peace and quiet whilst expertly trained guides entertain their children with a multitude of activities.

Activities are designed to be both educational and inspiring, and the time spent at the Young Explorers camp is sure to leave a lasting impression and fond memories in the minds of all the family.

The Young Explorers’ emphasis is on learning how to track game – both on foot and in 4×4 safari vehicles. We also teach children how to make small animal traps and how to start a fire from nothing more than two sticks. The children learn how to: recognise different animal spoor; identify a range of birds; try their hand at poling a Mokoro (subject to water levels); drive a game drive vehicle; fish; and shoot an air rifle at tin cans. On completion of the safari children receive a Young Explorers certificate, t-shirt and cap.
