As a time when we come together with loved ones, the festive season can offer an ideal opportunity to plan for the year ahead. Therefore, for our final journal of the year, we wanted to talk about multi-generational travel to Africa.
If you want to take your family to a place where they can be immersed in nature, learn about it and at the same time support critical ongoing conservation work, then take them to Africa. With an incredible diversity of environments, experiences and accommodation, we consider the continent as an unrivalled multi-generational destination.
Whether you’re after wildlife – which never ceases to be a source of fascination – breath-taking natural landscapes, private and secluded accommodation, the opportunity to immerse yourselves in other cultures, get involved in conservation work or simply take time out together and reset in a remote setting, Africa offers something for everybody, regardless of age.
When travelling as a larger family, we incorporate elements such as private charters, exclusive buy-outs of intimate lodges or villas and private guides to create an intimate experience. Private guides add an extra dimension as they provide that common thread between destinations, share their wealth of knowledge and keep younger generations entertained. This helps to ensure that everyone feels their best, resulting in real bonding experiences and treasured memories.
For those interested in exclusive-use properties and buy-outs, we have created the AMADI Villa Collection. Scattered across the continent, our carefully curated collection ranges from state-of-the-art villas and classic tented camps to cosy lodges and remote fly camps, and includes the best available across Africa.
When planning multi-generational trips it helps to plan well in advance. Due to the exclusive nature of the destinations and accommodation options on offer to multi-gen groups, it’s recommended to start thinking about a trip with as much time ahead as possible – especially if you want to have a good amount of choice between different options. This is also a big help in terms of aligning everybody’s schedules.
