World Travel Guide praises Africa's "attractive countenance of forests, savannah, waterfalls and magnificent national parks that teem with wildlife". Follow in the footsteps of David Attenborough and the critically acclaimed BBC series, "Africa", with a choice of two different half-price family-friendly adventure tours from Dragoman, starting at £815 per person.
Here are the two tours on offer:
19-Day Namibia and Botswana Family Overland... 28 July... £815 per person:
17-Day East African Family Overland... 21 July; 11 August... £890 per person:
Prices include camping or basic hotel accommodation, most of your meals, transfers, transport and English-speaking guides.
Both trips are specifically designed to be family-friendly, although travellers of any age and status can join a tour. Family-friendly tours involve an easier itinerary and "soft-sided" vehicles. There are no single supplements, but solo travellers will be required to share accommodation with group members of the same gender; this will occasionally involve a multiple share.
Tours listed above exclude international flights but we found competitive prices using Fly.com. For the East African Overland tour you could fly into Nairobi Airport and out of Dar es Salaam Airport; and for the Namibia and Botswana Overland tour you could fly into Hosea Kutako Airport and out of Victoria Falls Airport.
