Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Take Your Family to the Serengeti

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Take Your Family to the Serengeti

Summer is an ideal time to take a dream safari vacation with the whole family. June through October is the dry season in Tanzania, and Four Seasons Safari Lodge welcomes children aged two and older. Deep within the Serengeti National Park, families see animals like lions and giraffes up close, interact with locals, learn about wildlife and evolution firsthand, participate in kid-friendly activities, and relax in Four Seasons comfort. The Big Five Family Safari Package offers a complete itinerary for five days or more.


The Serengeti is renowned for the Great Migration, big cats, and the Big Five. “Safari” in Swahili means journey, and your Serengeti safari can be by air, vehicle or on foot (for those 16 and older). Float across the Tanzanian skies in a hot air balloon for a bird’s eye view of the great plains and animals; take a game drive with an expert driver guide to see the animals up close; or do a guided walk through the bush with a Maasai Warrior.

Kijana Kids Club

Children learn about African history and culture at the lodge’s Kijana Kids Club. Spend a morning with a Maasai Warrior to learn skills and traditions of the bush, pick up some Swahili, help set up remote camera traps, or take a cooking class and make cookies in the shape of your favorite animals.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti


Located within the Serengeti National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti puts families right in the heart of the famous game reserve known for some of the best wildlife viewing in the world. With an active watering hole frequented by elephants, and unobstructed views of the great plains from guest rooms, Four Seasons lodge offers magnificent wildlife viewing along with spacious and comfortable guest rooms, suites and free-standing villas with loads of amenities.

Dinner In The Bush

Family meal time is so much more fun in the bush! Plan a private, torch-lit bush dinner, a poolside barbecue at the villa, an African feast, or a special dinner in the wine cellar to taste South Africa’s best wines.

Discovery Centre

Engage in an interactive experience to learn more about African culture, wildlife and history, or get involved with Four Seasons’ conservation efforts in Tanzania. The Discovery Centre is the first lodge-based center for conservation research and education in the Serengeti, offering talks, presentations, exhibits, and chances for guests of all ages to gain a deep understanding of the region.
