WHAT YOU CAN DO
Leaving the safari houses aside, Zambia is not the best place for family safari. The main reason is that the best camps focus on walking safari – an activity that is not permitted for children under 12 in the vast majority of camps. The Lower Zambezi, however, does have a couple of camps that have a wide diversity of safari activities – Chiawa and the above mentioned Chongwe River Camp.
Victoria Falls is another exception to the rule – here, there is a wealth of different activities such as horse riding, lion walks, elephant rides, boat cruises, bungee jumping, white water rafting and zip wires. Entire days of adrenalin activities can easily be arranged, while the parents relax by the pool!
