Zambia can get hot during the day but during the summer months (June to mid-August) it can get exceptionally cold during the night and you should be prepared to bundle up! Please note that Zambia is a malaria area.
Children must share a tent with an adult and are not to be left alone at night in the game reserves and wilderness areas.
For most of the tour we will be staying in well-equipped campsites. However for 2 nights (during the canoe safari) we will camping in smaller secure dome tents backed up with a light mobile camp with the exception of having ablution facilities available. The wild camping will certainly add to the overall bush experience and should be an exciting experience for the whole family!
For the canoe safari, no previous experience is necessary but you should have a reasonable level of fitness. An ability to swim is highly recommended.

Going on a Family Group trip is a fantastic way to meet new friends and create lasting friendships – for parents and children alike! These holidays combine exploration with sociability and fun, as other families will join you. Minimum ages vary across the trip range, but is usually from 5 years old.
Our Family Group holidays usually cater for children from 5 years old. However, experience tells us that children tend to prefer mixing with their own age groups, especially teenagers. That’s why we’ve designated certain departures on our group trips as particularly recommended for teenagers. Whilst we don't restrict younger kids from joining these holidays, the 'recommended for teenagers' departures means there are likely to be other teenagers to share the experience with.
