This itinerary is perfect for families with teenage children. Having 2 teenagers myself, I feel I have an insight into their requirements and understand their need for privacy and space, which is why this family safari is the perfect combination in Victoria Falls and Hwange. The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge offers spacious and luxurious accommodation and the perfect base to explore Victoria Falls from. The Private Hide is fantastic for a family with their private vehicles and guides, giving you freedom as a family to do as you please each day.
