Improving infrastructure, transportation and accommodations, plus general political calm have made it easier for tour operators to provide dependable, high-quality products in Africa. SITA World Tours has seized on the opportunity and introduced new Africa itineraries with special emphasis on providing family-oriented adventure.
An African safari is one of the most engaging and memorable prospects possible for a family vacation. But in making the decision to journey to Africa and roam through its remote and awe-inspiring landscapes, it is of utmost importance to travel with a company that has impeccable credentials in the region.
Over the years SITA World Tours has established itself as a leader in providing exciting, one-of-a-kind experiences coupled with well-researched accommodations and exceptional service throughout the African continent. Providing both scheduled departure itineraries and customized tours, SITA offers an 8-day “Family Safari” in Kenya among several choices for exciting adventures that encompass Kenya, Tanzania, Egypt, South Africa, Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan, UAE and Madagascar.
The SITA “Family Safari” was created to provide the ultimate ecological, cultural and overall family-focused experience in Kenya. All the hotels and lodges featured are extremely child-friendly with excellent facilities. The children will be entertained by trained naturalists throughout the safari. No other organized family-style itinerary provides such an array of day-to-day activities with special attention to the likes of every member of the family from young children to grand parents.
The “Family Safari” begins in Nairobi with a visit to Daphne Sheldricks’ Elephant Orphanage and an opportunity to feed the rare Rothschild giraffe at the famous Giraffe Centre. From Nairobi the group will fly to the Samburu National Reserve for a stay at Samburu Intrepids deep inside the game reserve. From Samburu the safari continues to Lake Naivasha and the Great Rift Valley Lodge midway between the Samburu and Maasai Mara reserves. These are considered the country’s finest game reserves and both offer some of the world’s most spectacular game viewing.
Although SITA recommends their “Family Safari” for families in particular, the company has vast experience in Africa and can provide customized programs upon request including Uganda and Rwanda Gorilla treks, an 11-day journey that reveals “Botswana in Depth,” an 11-day opportunity to explore “Zimbabwe & Zambia,” an 11-day “Splendors of Africa” package with an emphasis on South Africa and two very special “Tanzania Deluxe Safari” and “Tanzania Under Canvas” itineraries that both include a visit to Kilimanjaro.
SITA was named by National Geographic Traveler as one of “Five Top Tour Operators” in the publication’s “20th Anniversary Edition.” SITA not only provides unparalleled quality service to Africa, but also offers value-priced, luxury scheduled-departure and customized tours to exotic destinations worldwide – including Asia, India, Australia & New Zealand and South America.
