Family Holidays

Family holidays in Africa can only be the best fun ever with Journey in Style. Travelling with children is daring in itself but if you can take your children into a paradise setting with you, then memories are made so much more easily. From beach holidays to safari fantasies, from city nightlife to complete island solitude, the choice is yours. Sail on yacht as a family, go deep sea diving together or simply enjoy game drives in real Africa and time to revel at the sky full of stars.
One of our favourite family destinations just has to be Stanley Safari Lodge in Livingstone, Zambia. A great place from which to see Victoria Falls and appreciate some great game drives in the Vic Falls National Park. The lodge is quiet and intimate and Journey in Style will tailor your stay to suit you. A perfect base from which to explore the delights of the area – from white water rafting and bungee jumping to elephant back safaris, sunset cruises or walking with lions.
Choose a Family Suite, designed to be open to welcome and absorb the cacophony of sounds and fascinating sights of the African bush. Watch the spray from the Falls from your bed - this is indeed the ideal spot to enjoy sundowners followed by delightful French-African cuisine.
On the east coast of Africa, off the Tanzanian mainland, lies Zanzibar, spice island and honeymoon escape deluxe. But families also love to head to the north east coast to a new resort called Diamonds Mapenzi Beach Club. Book your all-inclusive package for a holiday in paradise and so close to the airport too. Enjoy the magical setting in 4 hectares of stunning vegetation overlooking a palm fringed white beach and the azure Indian Ocean beyond.
Diamond Mapenzi Beach Club is idyllic for romantic retreats and family holidays so book large rooms with lavish interiors and make the most of the hotel facilities. Enjoy pampering massages and beauty therapies at the delightful spa while your children make full use of the state of the art dive and activities centre. Families can take each other on, on the floodlit tennis court or around the billiards table, dart board and table tennis. There is even a disco. Parents can tan their bodies at the pool while their offspring take on fellow guests in a game of beach volleyball.
Another family island destination recommended by JIS has to be Mauritius and the magical seaside village of Belle Mare on the east coast of Mauritius. Choose the trendy beach hotel of LUX* Belle Mare and a breath-taking view of pristine white beaches and a sparkling lagoon from your traditionally thatched villa or suite at this exceptional beach hotel in Mauritius. Families can make the most of the LUX* Me spa and various tantalising restaurants as well as one of the island's largest swimming pools. After a refreshing swim, buy a fresh, low-fat ice cream packed with island fruits from an ice vendor.
Some families prefer to go wild and see nature at her most exciting so allow Journey in Style to take you to Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge. It is an exciting safari destination as it sits on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River where Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia meet. Be prepared to see some of the most amazing game and birds here in this 5,000-acre concession and its 14 km of private Zambezi river frontage. Explore the Zambezi River by boat or fantastic game drives to see lion, the African wild dog, elephant, giraffe and kudu.
