Makanyane Safari Lodge, the luxury lodge in South Africa has announced it is now welcoming children under 12-years-old to stay during school holidays.

Children over 12 years are welcome at the lodge throughout the year, but now children under the age of 12 can stay at the luxurious lodge during the school holiday periods, including 10 December to 6 January, 15-28 February, 1-31 August and 15-31 October.

The lodge will be offering various activities for young children, including many fun and educational activities such as basic game walks, teaching survival skills and a junior guiding course.

Garth Kew, Managing Director at Makanyane Safari Lodge says: “We are delighted to welcome young families to Makanyane Safari Lodge from this summer. Whilst the lodge will maintain the same peaceful atmosphere for couples, we wanted to open up the experience for families travelling during school holidays so they too can enjoy the unforgettable memories a holiday at the lodge offers. If we have a combination of guests staying at any one time we will organise for families to go on separate vehicles during game drives ensuring everyone receives their desired experience from their stay at Makanyane Safari Lodge.”

Situated on private land overlooking a lush riverside forest in the heart of the Madikwe Game Reserve, Makanyane Safari Lodge is home to the famous big five and offers an authentic, yet very luxurious South African experience. Boasting eight lavish suites, all with large glass walls offering panoramic views and private sundecks off each suite, it is the perfect location to enjoy a warm summer’s day observing the sights and sounds of the African bush.

Prices start from ZAR 4600 (approximately £401) per adult, per day (based on 2 adults sharing). Children under two years old sharing with adults pay 25% of the price and children between two to 12 years old pay 50% of the price. Price includes a luxurious suite, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks; two game drives, one night game drive, game walks, visits to hides and transfers from the Madikwe Game Reserve air strip.
