As beautiful and wild as it is, Africa is also different and when I was writing about travel tips for kids I realized that Africa warranted a separate section. This is one place I’d go back to in a heartbeat and so would my son as we both love

the wild outdoors and animals.
Kids are already quite aware and knowledgeable about animals and if you are planning an African Safari it really helps to get them excited by maybe tuning in to Animal Planet or surfing the net together. When they know which animals they are going to see and the fact they can identify them, really heightens their interest and excitement. Once they are clued in they also understand that they need to keep quiet when on the safari, you spot animals.
Here are a few tips that I thought were important.
-Some countries require you to have taken Yellow Fever Vaccination (Kenya & Tanzania) or others depending on the country you visit. Some need
to be taken up to six weeks prior to traveling and you need to check where to get this in your city so, get on it -in advance.
-Mosquito repellents are a must and do not leave without these. The ones with ‘Deet’ are most effective.
-Anti Itch and anti Rash creams/lotions.
-Check the resorts/hotels/lodges/camps on their child policy as some have a minimum age.
-My five-year-old son and two and half year old niece had no problems on the safaris, with the food (which was great) and the lodges. The only thing they were not able to do, was the Hot Air Balloon Safari which has a
minimum age requirement of 10years(usually).
-Take layered clothing, as the mornings and evenings are quite cold while by mid-day you
want to peel off some layers as it gets warm and even hot.
-Neutral colours are important as bright colours including white can disturb wildlife.
-Well fitting caps that do not fly off, as most of the safaris are in open jeeps.
-Get kiddie binoculars or a smaller pair for your kids so you and they don’t need to share. Trust me, when you spot that elusive leopard or rhino, you can get very possessive of those binoculars.
-Malaria is quite rampant in some parts of Africa and Cerebral Malaria can be quite dangerous. You can give a prophylactic dose of Chloroquinone which can prevent malaria even if bitten by a parasite-carrying mosquito. Your pediatrician will recommend the medicine and you have to start a few weeks before you leave, so again do that at least a month in advance. Adults can take this too. http://www.traveldoctor.info/diseases/1.html.
