Summer Time Family Holiday in Africa
Family holidays are all about great enjoyment - about tales and events re-told, re-lived and remembered! An African holiday offers this, and more. Children of all ages need to be well occupied during a vacation, and depending on the age of the child, the type of attraction or activity will differ. Smaller children must be 'supervised' and kept close by while teenagers can explore a little further. During any camping family holiday children will assist with camping duties such as setting up or breaking down camp, doing washing, cleaning and cooking. Around the camp there are always birds and the family can try to identify as many of the region's birds as possible. Parents who can interest their kids in hiking or biking can rest assured that a large part of the holidays could be filled with the discovery of new places too.
A family holiday to Mozambique for instance promises lazy days in the sun, snorkelling, swimming, fishing and a range of other water sports and activities. Dive or snorkel around the islands for a prime view of the best that coral reefs can offer. Whale sharks frequent the warm waters of Mozambique and visitors can go on tours to see these. Boats go out to take visitors to see dolphins while fishing charters are offered for keen fisherman. Anglers can cast from the shore and also enjoy the sport with fantastic fishing spots abounding.
Botswana is another "ultimate" in African destinations, and many visitors to this country certainly won't disagree! Wildlife, gorgeous sunsets, and all sorts of encounters with nature will keep you on the 'edge of your seat'. Your family holiday should include as many options as possible to maximise your African adventure. If finances permit, there is always the fixed aircraft flip over the delta, alternatively steel your nerves and glide quietly in a cano right into the territories of "the beasts" where you can experience crocodiles, hippos and much more. See elephant up close, watch a crocodile float past or watch the hippos feeding.
Families who are on a family holiday in that region could stop over at the Victoria Falls and fall head over heels in love with the waterfall. Stay in the town of Livingstone on the Zambian side of the falls or the Zimbabwean side at the town of Victoria. Elephant-backed rides are possible and so is white river rafting on the Zambezi River.
