Private Family Safari in South Africa with Guided Safaris

“I cannot recall taking a family trip that over-delivered in every aspect. This was a seamless, exciting and wonderful adventure for each of us!”

“As for Guided Safaris, from the very beginning of inquiry phone calls, Gareth was really responsive and helpful in planning a first time luxury trip for our family that fit our parameters of not too many small airplanes…As well, the selection of Lebombo first and Ebony second (with the Family Suite!) was brilliant!


The children read books, took photos, painted watercolor pictures, rode bikes, did archery & skeet shooting, played chess and decorated cookies with the kitchen staff at Singita. Of course, this was all in addition to participating in all 10 days of safaris at Singita Lebombo & Singita Ebony as well as touring Cape Town and the Winelands! As part of the lodge activities we also sang, danced and visited the community & cooking school. They were amazing in all aspects of the trip and it was a perfect age to take the children (12, 14 & 16),” says Deborah Goldman.

Family Safari at Singita Grumeti

Beautiful photography by Marjorie Kessler and her family on their recent trip to Singita Grumeti reserve in Tanzania with Guided Safaris. A special thank you from our team in San Francisco for sharing this wonderful safari album with us and our fellow travelers anticipating their own upcoming journey to the gorgeous Singita Grumeti reserve.

“The trip was absolutely spectacular. There are no words to describe the incredible time we had. As you know Singita does not miss a detail. Each lodge was extraordinary and we loved each one. We got to see Sabora and Serengeti House as well. Thanks for everything… Here are a few of my favorites. Would love to be featured for all to see. Looking forward to my next trip with you…!” – Marjorie Kessler + the Codos family from New Jersey.

What travel can teach: Family Safari

Grandparents Mr. & Mrs. DuBusc planned their very first safari to Africa with their children Rob and Lisa Miller – and of course, the very excited grandchildren: Emily, Jeffrey and Audrey. Guided Safaris tailored a 4 night stay at the wild and authentic Singita Lebombo Concession in Northern Kruger, bordering the rugged Mozambique mountain range for an action packed adventure with game drives, archery sessions (non-game based, of course!) and a lesson in the Circles of Life in the great African wilderness.

One word would describe the trip … FANTASTIC…!! Here is a copy of Lisa’s report on her safari experience…in glowing terms..

– Richard Dubusc writes in his note to Guided Safaris.
