savings on family safaris

A safari is one of the best holiday investments you can make for your family.  Few other holidays offer such a fabulous departure from every-day life as a safari, with activities enough to please everyone from teen to granny.  With opportunities still available in the summer holidays and October half term, we’ve done some digging to unearth a handful of spectacular offers to take the sting out of the cost!

Enjoy this quintessentially classic safari destination staying in a combination of Nomad Tanzania’s outstanding small camps.

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.

TRADITIONAL SAFARI IN KENYA’S MASAI MARA – 25% DISCOUNT

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 two-bedroomed family safari tents) where the guides take great delight in engaging children of all ages. Particularly good for an escape over October half term or the Christmas holidays.
