Family Safari: A Time to Reconnect

Time spent with the people you love is extremely important, it reminds you of your roots, it helps to give you identity and it shapes children into the adults they will become.

What better way to celebrate the gift of togetherness than by escaping from the hustle and bustle of routine life and taking the whole family on a safari? Time spent in the African bush gives you the chance to unwind and rejuvenate, a holiday that not only allows personal regeneration for individual family members but also this is the ideal place for reconnections amongst the people you care about most. 

One of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences as a family is to escape into nature, it appeals to all ages on so many levels. By immersing yourself in the wild spaces of the Timbavati, without the stress of city life, you can simplify things. 

On safari, everyone will be forced to disconnect from the usual daily routine and rather participate in activities together. At first, the kids may be a little resistant and the grandparent’s pace can be a challenge. But, nature has a magical quality that soon will capture everyone’s hearts and imaginations, and before you know it even the teenagers will be joining in the safari fun. 

Through laughter, playing board games, looking for animals, and enjoying meals as a family you grow closer. By stepping into nature and out of their comfort zone everyone tends to feel more vulnerable, a little more open to learning new things, and often focusing on old values. By leaving technology behind all family members are taught the importance of being present and living a more meaningful life. Often the real power of a family safari comes in the form of the transformation that occurs between a family while away from technology and the daily routine. 

Safari teaches children important life lessons, enabling them to be kinder, more empathetic, and more understanding of other people and the environment. Traveling with your children allows them to understand 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 is fundamental to our future existence. 

Experiences are far more valuable than belongings. Memories are made by living in the moment with the people you love, observing new activities, and getting involved together. Taking things at a slower pace and allowing you to recharge your batteries, safari encourages families to enjoy each other’s company and reminds them they are all loved and valued.
