A multi-generational family holiday is a top travel trend which allows geographically separated families to reconnect through shared travel experiences.Holidaying with family members can be an enriching and rewarding experience, particularly when your chosen destination welcomes, accommodates and caters for different generations.
At Tswalu Kalahari in South Africa there are a number of accommodation options for family members embarking on a shared safari, including family legae at The Motse, which each have two ensuite bedrooms and a shared living space, or Tarkuni Homestead with its five ensuite bedrooms.
Whatever accommodation option you choose, you can be sure that the staff will go out of their way to ensure that all generations of the family enjoy their safari to the maximum. With flexibility the key, families are allocated their own dedicated vehicles, rangers and trackers so that they can design their own itineraries and choose when to go on game drives, and when and where to dine.
A vast range of dining options includes sundowners and a dune picnic for dinner. This unique experience was shared recently by a family of three generations on their first visit to Tswalu to celebrate Granddad’s 70th birthday. The Tswalu team set up sundowners in the dunes so that the family could witness a spectacular Kalahari sunset. Afterwards, dinner was served at a long table set next to open fires for warmth and light. On the menu were dishes such as warthog stew (a Tswalu speciality), bobotie (a Cape Malay recipe), spicy chicken, Cape salmon, prawns and Cape brandy pudding. Pics by Tswalu Duty Manager Martin Bakker
