Aardvark Safaris Welcomes Members of the Beaufort Hunt Pony Club
Aardvark Safaris was delighted to sponsor the Area 9 Horse Trials in July – and many congratulations to all those who were placed. Following the event we are pleased to offer some superb special offers for Beaufort Hunt Pony Club members. The wonderful options range from exceptional wildlife viewing in Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and South Africa to gorgeous beach escapes in Mozambique and the Seychelles. All suited to families travelling with children. Please do give us a call if you would like further information on these or any of the other safaris we plan. Family and riding safaris are particular specialities at Aardvark Safaris and we would be delighted to chat, no matter how early in the planning process you might be.
Thrilling wildlife encounters in Tanzania. Enjoy this most classic of safari destinations from a combination of Nomad Tanzania’s outstanding small camps. With accommodation ranging from private houses Mkombe’s House and Kiba Point to classic tented camps Kuro Tarangire and Lamai Serengeti, as well as quirky Entamanu Ngorongoro and semi-mobile Serengeti Safari Camp, there’s something for all tastes. Whatever you choose, you can be sure of a fabulous wildlife experience, charismatic safari guides, fascinating cultural interactions and all sorts of ways to explore the bush, not just from a vehicle.
Offer: Stay seven nights a pay five. Child rates up to 21 years.
Some of the family ride but some don’t! That’s a conundrum familiar to many of us at Aardvark Safaris, but don’t despair. Several riding safari camps cater brilliantly for non-riders and African Horseback Safaris in Botswana’s Okavango Delta offers a special rate for non-riding children and partners, who can enjoy game drives, boating, mokoro expeditions and fishing while the equestrian members of the family explore the bush on horseback.
Offer: 50% discount for non-riding children (under 12), and 10% discount for non-riding adults joining a safari.
Traditional safari in Kenya’s Masai Mara. Topping many a safari wish list with its iconic open plains, great resident wildlife and the dramatic wildebeest migration, the Masai Mara is a superb wildlife destination. Just on its edge is the 74,000 acre Mara North Conservancy – full of the same wildlife but much quieter than its famous neighbour. Among our favourite camps here Offbeat Mara offers exceptional year round wildlife viewing. It’s a great choice for families (with three family safari tents) where the guides take great delight in engaging children of all ages. Particularly good for an escape over October half term.
Offer: 25% discount on a four night stay (excluding 1 July to 30 September).
Family adventure in Zambia. Fabulous wildlife, beautiful accommodation and wonderful scenery are hallmarks of a safari in Zambia. Combine two of Africa’s finest parks – the South Luangwa Valley and Lower Zambezi National Park – and you’ll be able to walk, canoe, day and night game drive amid prolific wildlife. Accommodation can be chosen from two of Chongwe’s lovely safari camps in the Lower Zambezi and five Norman Carr properties in the South Luangwa, all classic safari camps in great locations.
Offer: Spend seven nights on safari and get two nights free. Valid April to November.
The Seychelles’ most exclusive property. North Island is an outstanding spot for the perfect beach escape. Eleven exquisitely designed villas on this private island paradise overlook the pristine beach and turquoise ocean. Explore the tropical interior in your own golf buggy or head for one of the three gorgeous beaches to enjoy private picnics and sundowners. Amazing food, sea kayaking, boat cruises, fishing (both shore based and deep sea), snorkelling, scuba diving, and drinks are all included here.
Offer: Stay a week and get one night free. Children under 17, accommodated in the villa’s second bedroom, are free of charge.
Offer: 25% off a four night stay. One child under 12 stays free per family.
Mozambique – paradise found. Just 20 villas spread along a pristine stretch of beach greet you at Azura Benguerra. Sunny days, sparkling white sand, star studded nights and all the creature comforts you could possibly wish for comes pretty close to making this delightful spot heaven on earth. Hand built villas, just steps from the Indian Ocean, blend modern chic with traditional Mozambique. Explore magnificent reefs, take to the seas on a local dhow, relax in the spa or simply enjoy the idyllic surroundings from your private pool deck.
Offer: Stay six nights and get one night free.
