Looking for an African safari that works for adults and teens? U.K.-based Expert Africa creates itineraries with teens and tweens in mind. The Spotted Hyaena Safari, for example, explores the wildlife-rich South Luangwa River in Zambia and offers nature walks and safari quizzes for kids 12 and older to take on day and night drives into the bush.
Children also may spend afternoons cooling off in a swimming pool at one of the rustic camps and listening for the sounds of lions and other animals. The safari includes camping in South Luangwa National Park to see animals such as elephants, giraffes and lions and meet with local Kunda people to learn about village life in the bush. Nights are spent at three camps during this eight-day trip that begins and ends in Lusaka.
When: Safaris are customized and may be scheduled anytime. The Spotted Hyaena Safari is a suggested itinerary; trip length and activities may be modified.
Price: $2,574 per person, based on double occupancy. It includes stays at camps and villages, meals, safari activities, local transfers and more. International airfare is extra.
