'Few more rewarding
than a safari'
There are "few more rewarding family holidays than a safari" when it is organised correctly, according to a travel writer.
Mike Unwin, writing in The Independent newspaper, admitted that family adventure holidays such as safaris can be difficult - 'Are we nearly there yet?' is just as hard to answer in the Maasai Mara as on the M25", he says.
However, all it takes is a little careful planning and compromise to make a family safari one of the most memorable experiences of a child's - and a parent's - life.
One recommendation that Mr Unwin makes is for parent's always to have something prepared on the family adventure holiday.
"Remember that safaris, for all the action-packed yarns, can be quite passive affairs. So you'll need outlets for all that pent-up youthful energy," he writes
"Swimming pools, where available, are a godsend. Even building campfires or putting up tents are thrills that your children may not know back home."
People planning family holidays may wish to travel to Kenya to the watch wildlife on the Swahili Coast.
