African Travel Adventures That Are Perfect For All Generations
By Kelsey Marie
Traveling with family members can be a challenge due to varying ages and interests. Baby boomers may be into something totally different from Millennials and Gen Z, causing a clash of the generations.
If you want to have a seamless vacation with the fam, heading to the African continent is always a good idea.
Africa has so many incredible experiences to suit everyone, no matter which generation they were born into.
Victoria Falls – Zimbabwe
Head to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe for a view so epic, you won’t believe your eyes.
Sue Garrett, general manager marketing at the Flight Centre Travel Group says, “In Victoria Falls, teenagers can enjoy adrenaline-pumping adventures such as abseiling and bungee jumping, while younger kids can spot game on a Zambezi River Cruise or go whitewater rafting.”
Garrett goes on to say, “A bucket-list experience is enjoying a helicopter flip over the Falls. For a more sedate, relaxing activity for all ages, enjoy a high tea at the grand Victoria Falls Hotel watching ‘the smoke that thunders’ from the terrace. The views are unbeatable.”
Turtle Cove Surf Lodge And Yoga Shala – Tofo, Mozambique
Mozambique has both adventure and relaxation. The adventurous members of your family can go horseback riding, surfing, deep-sea fishing, and diving and land-based adventure.
However, if relaxation is the top priority, head to Turtle Cove Surf Lodge and Yoga Shala in Tofo. Located less than a mile away from Tofinho and Tofo beach amongst lush gardens, this is the perfect location to lay back and enjoy your surroundings.
You can enjoy the beach or take one of the yoga or meditation classes offered by expert instructors.
Gorilla Trekking – Uganda Or Rwanda
Take an incomparable tour through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and witness the daily life of mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.
Just make sure to choose a reputable tour instructor for the safest but most worry-free experience.
Chobe – Namibia
The Chobe River has the most “unspoiled concentrations of wildlife in Africa”, according to Biz Community.
Check into Ichingo Chobe River Lodge on Impalila Island, Namibia for the most authentic experience on the Chobe River. There are eight safari tents and one family tent, perfect for chillin’ with the fam.
Activities include a water-based safari where you can spot buffalo, lion, crocodile, elephant, and zebra up close. For the best chance at seeing all the wildlife, head to Chobe River between March and November.
