What do I pack for my African Family Safari?

Packing for any trip can be a challenge, but making sure your family are comfortable and have everything they need for their family safari in Africa can be downright scary. That’s why we have created this easy to use downloadable packing list as a guide.

Packing tips

Packing for your family safari with &Beyond

Try not to over-pack. Other than the essential items unique to your family, &Beyond’s family friendly lodges have everything you need to feel comfortable. Remember that most lodges have complimentary, or inexpensive laundry services, so rather have your clothes washed than lug too much stuff with you. Certain destinations in Africa may call for luggage restrictions, as certain light aircrafts prefer soft bags to hard shell suitcases, so the less you need to pack, the better.

Check the season and the weather constraints with your travel planner, and pack accordingly. Some destinations in Africa can be very cold at night, while summer days are very hot. Remember that while COVID19 is a reality, masks are mandatory, so make sure you have enough. These can be washed in your room at night, or added to your laundry.

Download our checklist for guidelines on exactly what you need for your young family on an African safari, right here. If you are unsure of anything or have any questions whatsoever, your Travel Specialist will be able to guide you.

A WILDchild gift

Remember that at any of &Beyond’s family friendly lodges, your kiddies will be provided with a special WILDchild age-appropriate backpack filled with goodies to keep them entertained on their safari with us.
