Close encounters with giraffes, stunning panoramas of Ngorongoro Crater, family photos in front of the Land Rover – a thousand words can’t describe a family safari well enough, so we’d like to try something different.
With 20 years of safari trips under our belt, we’ve had a lot of time to collect pictures. See what the family safari experience is like with a few of our favorite shots.
The Castle Family and a Budding Photographer
The Castles joined four other families on a safari that would take them through the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and to a school visit for volleyball, soccer and some bonding with the local children.

We’ve brought a lot of high-profile wildlife photographers on safari – published professionals, award winners, lifelong conservationists, you name it. But everyone needs to start somewhere!
Madison Castle photographs a baboon.
Madison’s photos were a big hit during the safari. They were a great conversation starter with the school children.
And they were popular with the other kids on her trip, too.
We like to think the memories are particularly special when everyone is contributing to the photo album.
The Killeen Family Spots Sparring Elephants and Spend Time with the Maasai
Wildlife and cultural experiences are two key ingredients for the perfect safari experience. The Killeen family received a generous dose of both.
The Killeen family spots a herd of elephants sauntering through the plains.
Two elephants tussle along the park road.
After wildlife viewing, the family stopped by a Maasai village to meet some of the people.
A day like that needs to be recorded, no matter what time it is.
Some of Our Favorite Action Shots
From the beaches of Zanzibar to remote villages in northern Tanzania, there are thousands of activities that make for memorable moments. Here are just a few.
The Dennis family stops for a quick street-side jam session.
The Jorizzos jump into a pickup soccer match.
The Quinlans may have gotten homework.
The Senturias collect farm fresh ingredients at Gibb’s Farm.
The Armstrongs find a herd of giraffes during a walking safari.
The Chizmars float over the Serengeti.
And of course, no family safari is complete without the obligatory group photo. We don’t like picking favorites, but if we had to, the Terrys would be on our shortlist.
