Kids on Safari

Bring the kids to Nambwa Tented Lodge for a family safari like no other!

Looking at the wonders of nature through the eyes of a child is the most remarkable way to go on safari as a family. It is for this reason that African Monarch Lodges love hosting young ones at its Nambwa Tented Lodge where children with their moms and dads are accommodated at a Peter Pan Treetop Style lodge.

We run a Junior Ranger Mini course during scheduled dates, for the balance of the year we do not operate a set programme, instead we have a range of great activities to keep our young guests fully entertained during their stay.

Family Accommodation

Our young guests can be accommodated in their parent’s room with a maximum of 2 extra beds added to the suite. They can also be accommodated in their own private separate room close to their parents’ room. Terms and conditions apply.
Pre-booked child-minding services are available at an additional cost.

Nambwa Family Retreat


child learning about local trees

Includes a Junior Ranger Mini-Course

African Monarch Lodges’ Junior Ranger Mini-Course offers a thrilling opportunity for families. Carefully designed to introduce young people to the mystery and excitement of the African wilderness, the programme will give its participants a taste of the skills every budding bush ranger needs. Under the care of our experienced field guides, they will learn fascinating facts about the unique wildlife of Bwabwata National Park, discover how to identify these creatures by sight, call and track, and uncover the secrets of the trees and plants growing all around them.

& For Mums & Dads...

Meanwhile, Mums and Dads will be free to join in with the learning, or perhaps join the variety of activities available, including game drives, boat safaris, bush walks or fishing trips. Those seeking a spiritual connection with their surroundings might opt to begin their day with morning yoga practice led by our dedicated instructor, who will awaken the mind, the body and the senses. Others may simply choose to relax in the luxury of Nambwa Tented Lodge.  

We will celebrate the last evening with a feast on a private island in the bush. Dress up as your favourite character!
