You’re never too old for the Lion King – or Tarzan for that matter. Why not combine a family holiday with the stories you hold closest to your heart? You may not meet Simba or Tarzan on your safari, but when you see your first pride of lions in the wild you’ll forget all about your cartoon-filled dreams and focus on the beautiful reality that is Africa. Take the kids along to share this experience with you and give them something to brag about for years to come. After all, not many seven-year olds can say they’ve come face to face with a wild elephant! Are you convinced? Pack up your khaki safari suit, grab your camera and muster up all the enthusiasm you can – you’re going on a lion hunt. YOUR AFRICAN FAMILY When you get to Makutsi Safari Springs in northeastern South Africa, expect to see more nature and wildlife than you can poke a stick at. The family run private game reserve is just an hour away from Kruger National Park and features mineral spring water and complete serenity. Stay for a week or longer and embrace this little slice of African paradise that is about as far away from Kiwi life as you can imagine. Your safari package includes private accommodation, open Land Rover safaris and excursions, two meals a day and guidance from some of the most knowledgeable nature enthusiasts around. Your whole family will be warmly embraced here, and it won’t cost an arm and a leg either. And if you’ve got kids under the age of 12, they’ll be lighter on the wallet with half price deals!
