Family on Safari
The best way for families to enjoy a safari is to charter a house boat which has plenty of space with on board facilities and you have it for your own private use.
Many young families have already discovered the fascination of nature and the ‘great out-doors’ recognizing the benefit of introducing their children to our worlds natural environment. Children have a fertile imagination plus a mind like a sponge when it comes to taking in new and exciting experiences. A small boat safari on a beautiful desert lake has many more worthwhile adventures than a normal sun, sea & sand holiday staying in a plush hotel.
If some members of your family enjoy fishing then consider chartering a House Boat & Fishing Boat Combo, the family can enjoy the safari experience while the rest go fishing in the fishing boat.
The atmosphere of a small boat safari is fantastic and completely different to what you have probably experienced before. The focal point of each safari is well-appointed mother ships which provide excellent meals and a place to relax and socialize. Every day the mother ship moves to a different site which is usually located on a sandy beach in beautiful desert surroundings. Swimming is safe close to the boats and there are plenty of opportunities to relax and sunbathe and the kids can play games on the sandy beach.
Our safari staff and guides are all Nubians and you can’t beat them for their spontaneous and genuine friendship. You will be well looked after, especially the kids and mother can relax knowing her children are being well taken care of.
Every day will bring a different experience as you explore this desert lake in your own live aboard boat. There is a lot to see and do, in many ways it’s like visiting a game park where you can also have the fun of catching and releasing big fish. The family will learn about the Sahara desert and what it looks like and are likely to meet a family of Basheria Bedouin nomads or friendly fishermen to find out what they have caught; sometimes even small crocodiles are caught in their fishing nets.
