Kids in the bush

Anita Powell, of Small World Marketing, reassures parents that a South African safari is a good choice for their children

The grandparents tutted when I declared I was taking my seven-, five- and three-year-olds on safari. “Is it safe?” “What about malaria?” “Can’t you go to Longleat?” I was warned that my kids would be too young to appreciate the experience, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth.

I struggled to find somewhere in South Africa that would accept children as young as ours, as most lodges have policies of only accepting kids over six.
