Having booked many safaris and tours for families, we have noticed an increase in the number of bookings that involve more than one generation travelling together. The younger families are going on vacations with their parents and/or grandparents, making it a family affair.  The baby boomers of the early 50s are very active and their kids’ families are also growing.   With everyone living such busy lives, young parents seem to value the companionship of their parents, and also want to give their children the unique opportunity of bonding with grandpa and grandma. 

Of course one becomes weary when planning for a holiday which involves three or four generations of families.  But it can be done.  Tanzania is a warm and welcoming country, mainly due to its friendly, warm hearted and generous locals who are always ready to help.  Tanzania is also rich in its culture and diverse wildlife.  Whether you want to go on safari in the Serengeti or relax on the tropical beaches of Zanzibar, Tanzania has it all.

If it’s a beach holiday you want then Zanzibar, just off the coast of Tanzania, boasts some of the best beaches in the world where a number of excellent resorts offer activities and facilities to suit the whole family.
