FAMILY BEACH HOLIDAY IN TANZANIA

Are You Planning To A Tanzania Family Beach Trip? Scroll Down...

In the bustle of normal day to day living with the kids busy with their school lives and you busy with your career and other domestic responsibilities, it sometimes becomes challenging for the family to spend cherished quality time with each other. This is where an intimate beach vacation to Tanzania comes in to revitalize and strengthen your household union. Use this time for vital reconnections with your family and build bonds and memories that will last a lifetime. Tanzania, with its incredible natural beauty, has much to offer young developing minds. For the younger children and above age toddlers, they is much to experience on the sandy beaches from exploring shallow rock pool with marine creatures left out by the tide, building sandcastles to joining in with other like-minded children on a fun activity day organized by the resort’s children club. For teens, introduce them to the active water activities like kitesurfing, wakeboarding, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkeling and so much more. Above all, you will be to teach your kids how to build confidence in foreign lands and also have them appreciate the delicate ecosystems and their fascinating flora and fauna, both marine and terrestrial. Use this opportunity of a family seaside holiday in Africa, to inculcate in them a love and respect for their fellow creatures as these young people will be the custodians of tomorrow’s Earth. Also, instill them to value and esteem diversity of other cultures that the planet is blessed with. Even as you visit the many architectural and historical wonders on the Swahili coast of Tanzania and the many traces past civilizations have left behind, you will be able to broaden their minds and conceptions and fill them with awe for the ancients that flourished here over the centuries. AfricanMecca feels this is crucial in today’s intertwined world where one can learn from the past and make it better for the future.

We have provided some general guidance about some of the other considerations for a seaside family holiday in Tanzania.

Family Health Concerns For Beach Travel In Tanzania

At AfricanMecca Safaris, we understand your concerns that the time you spend in Tanzania should be safe for the children, yourselves, and you should be able to return from your beach vacation in Africa with only happy memories. We make sure that hotels and resorts we recommend for you are child-friendly with the necessary mosquito nets for protection. We also take special care to inform you of all the mandatory vaccinations that you must make sure you all get before your arrival in Tanzania. Valid immunization certificates will need to be presented on arrival for inspection by the immigration officer in Tanzania. It is advisable that you and your kids visit your family doctor to ensure that you have a clean bill of health before traveling. We will also advise you on the insect repellants and other medication including malaria prophylaxis that are recommended during your voyage to Tanzania. You physician should be able to guide you further based on your medical history. Other precautions include having the necessary health insurance and arrangements for evacuation if needed. While there is no real cause to worry, taking precautions and being prudent can ensure that you have a wonderful seaside holiday in Tanzania with your family.

Budget Choice For Family Beach Trips To Tanzania

You might be looking for well-known beach locations or off-the-beaten-track island destinations in Tanzania within a specific budget you have in mind. Our beach consultant at AfricanMecca Safaris will be able to advise you the perfect destination accommodations that are suitable for families, from intimate beachfront lodges, boutique hotels to larger all-inclusive resorts. When helping you plan your dream seaside vacation, we will make sure all these concerns are taken care of along with the cost factor so that you will not end up running a huge tab every time your kids need a snack, something to drink or participate in an activity like kayaking. We generally recommend an all-inclusive meal plan for families who prefer not to pay for beverages, munchies or extra meals at the fancy of their child. Another important factor is the cost of activities available to kids and parents. Some hotels charge extra for activities and facilities, from using tennis courts and rackets, snorkels, surfboards to kayaking and more; therefore, the need to choose an appropriate accommodation that does not charge extra for its sporting facilities and equipment is essential. When working out your budget, you can also keep in mind that in most cases, kids aged from 2 to 12 years can travel and stay at half price when sharing the room with their parents while those at 2 or below are not charged at all. Discounts are also available for children needing their own room for the privacy of their parents.

Child-Friendly Beach Considerations For Tanzania

At AfricanMecca Safaris, we understand entirely child-friendly hotel and destination requirements to ensure maximum enjoyment of your beach trip in Tanzania. Accordingly, we ensure that the recommended hotels have activities for both young and older children to keep them busy, interested and engaged at all times. For instance, young kids will love to frolic on the powdery white sands building sand castles or viewing the tiny sand fauna like crabs to vervet monkeys in the trees or perhaps learn to identify the colorful tropical birds they see. They will also love to view tiny creatures like starfish left behind in rock pools by the ebbing tide or the many unusual seashells on the seashore. Revel in their excitement and awe as they watch turtle hatchlings on the beach. Some hotels also have kiddy pools where they can spend time playing while you enjoy a sunbathing session, keeping a careful eye on them. Older kids can enjoy the many water activities like kitesurfing, sailing, jet-skiing and also learn to dive and snorkel. A lesson in angling aboard one of the custom-built fishing boats along with an understanding of the importance of marine conservation can be valuable for kids to remember from their beach tour in Tanzania. Give them a taste of culture by visiting the museums, coastal villages and perhaps, the ruins on distinct islands. Do remember that you can choose to combine your beach holiday with a safari to the various parks and reserves of Tanzania. Another necessary factor is that there should be food available that is to the liking of your kids. Many resorts have special menus for children or facilities for preparing meals on request. Some might even have earlier meal times to accommodate kids that can be very convenient on your beach escapade.

Family Beach Holiday Timings For Tanzania

The coastline and islands of Tanzania offer one of the finest beach destinations for your family holiday on the Indian Ocean, and this is because the best times for visiting it coincides with the time for summer school vacations in America and Europe. Should you plan your trip in the last couple of weeks of December, it is a much warmer time in Tanzania, and you will enjoy a welcome respite from the harsh winters up north. The time when school closes for summer is the dry season that is also perfect months to combine a bush and beach safari. Wildlife can be better viewed because of sparser vegetation and limited supply of water, forcing wildlife to congregate around permanent rivers, waterholes, swamps and lakes. The sky is clear, the sun is pleasantly warm and perfect for a seashore retreat. The Easter period falls in between the rainy period in Tanzania. However, many parents with school kids from Europe take off for around two weeks during this time to benefit from discounted room rates offered by distinct hotels and resorts in eastern Tanzania, especially from Zanzibar Island. We highly recommend that you plan and book your international flights 8 to 10 months prior to arrival to benefit from affordable fares because airlines are infamous for not offering low or discounted fares for late bookings especially during the time when they know school kids are going to be off on their breaks. For those who prefer visiting Tanzania during the busy times and prefer to stay away from large crowds of families on the seashore or at the hotel, AfricanMecca can recommend an intimate, smaller boutique resort or even a private beachfront villa to ensure a highly personalized and discerning experience, from a private butler to an in-house devoted chef.
