Family Safari: A Time to Reconnect

Time spent with the people you love the most is extremely important, it gives you identity, reminds you of your roots and molds your children into the adults they will grow into one day.  

Spending time in nature teaches your children important life lessons, enabling them to be kinder, more empathetic and understanding other people and their environment. A safari allows families to become closer, creates reconnections and growth through education, all the while surrounded by the beauty of an untamed natural world. 

Transforming Times 

An African safari is possibly one of the best family bonding experiences you can ask for; spending time together in nature is a truly fulfilling and rewarding holiday because it appeals to all ages on so many levels. Immersing yourself in the wide-open spaces of the Timbavati is the perfect way to simplify things, while at the same time investing in one another in an endless natural environment. 

A safari with your family gifts you with the joy of new experiences, teaches you about your individual personalities and often gives you the tools which enable you to lead a more purposeful life. You will bring back memories in the form of photographs and maybe some curios, perhaps some funny stories, but the real power comes in the form of the transformation that can occur between your family while on safari.  


Everyone Benefits 

Being out in the bush means everyone can disconnect from their usual daily routine and participate in fun activities together. The children may be a little resistant at first, and the grandparents’ pace can be challenging at times. But nature has a magical quality that will capture everyone’s hearts and imaginations, and before you know it even the teenagers will be having fun! 

Life is busy, but being on a safari at Tanda Tula allows you to disconnect from your daily routine and creates time to truly reconnect with your family, laugh together, play board games, enjoy meals, and learn about an entire new natural world. By stepping into nature and out of individual comfort zones everyone is more vulnerable, a little more open to learning new things and focusing on important family values. By leaving technology behind everyone is taught the importance of being present and hopefully how to live a more meaningful life.  

Travelling with your children allows them to experience new cultures, food and experiences, opening their minds to the wonders that the natural world has to offer.  Teaching the next generation, the importance of our environment and how it is fundamental to their future existence.  

Experiences Win 

If there is one lesson we can pass on to the next generation, it should be that experiences that are far more valuable than belongings. Memories are made by living in the moment with the people you love, observing new activities, getting involved together. Taking things at a slower pace allows you to recharge your batteries, it gives your family the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and reminds them they are all loved and valued, while at the same time experiencing one of life’s most memorable holidays, a safari in the Greater Kruger Park. 

Now, with our generous and beautiful family suites, we are perfectly equipped for you and your family to come to Tanda Tula to enjoy and benefit from these incredible opportunities and experiences with your most loved people. We look forward to welcoming your family to ours.
