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.
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.
With our team able to tailor a range of activities for our younger guests, here are just some examples of what they may get up to during a 3 night stay at Nambwa Tented Lodge:
