Is there electricity during the safari?
Yes, during a safari in Tanzania, there is often electricity supply, at least in most lodges, camps, and hotels designed for tourists. These accommodations typically have power generators or alternative energy sources such as solar power. However, in more remote safari areas, especially in mobile tented camps, you may find that electricity supply is limited or available only at certain times.
It’s advisable to communicate with us before your safari to get precise information about the type of electricity supply available at your safari accommodations. This way, you can prepare accordingly and, if needed, take additional measures like bringing power banks or other mobile chargers to ensure you have enough power for your electronic devices during your safari.
Is it possible to go on a safari with children?
Yes, going on a safari with children is entirely doable and can be a fantastic experience for the whole family. However, it’s important to plan the safari in a way that caters to the needs and comfort of the children. Guruguru Safaris offers family-friendly safari options, so feel free to reach out to us personally for more information.
When planning a safari with children, it’s crucial to choose child-friendly accommodations that offer family rooms or other child-oriented facilities. Opting for shorter safari routes is also advisable to minimize travel time and ensure that children aren’t overwhelmed. During the safari, breaks should be scheduled to allow the children to move around and avoid extended periods in the vehicle.
Bringing along toys, books, and games to keep the children engaged during the journey is a good idea. Safety is a top priority, so children should always be supervised during wildlife observations and activities.
With the right planning and preparation, a safari can become an educational and unforgettable experience for the whole family.
