Destinations / Africa

An African safari is a dream vacation for many. For family travelers, it is a great way to introduce the kids to a lifestyle in which people coexist compassionately with the world around them. Not everyone is looking for the same experience, so choosing the right safari for the family is an important decision when planning your vacation.


Jek Tours and Safaris offers unique safaris that go above and beyond the traditional experiences that explore the wilds of Africa. One such experience is the company’s Beach and Leisure safari package. This experience takes you to the beaches of Zanzibar, an island off the coast of Tanzania where palm trees line white sandy beaches and wildlife is in abundance.


Jek’s Beach and Leisure package includes plenty of time for snorkeling, lounging on the beach and enjoying stunning sunsets, but you will also enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences like visiting Prison Island, home of the Aldabra giant tortoises; exploring Stone Town City, the historical portion of Zanzibar’s capital; and visiting Jozani Forest, where you’ll see the red colobus monkeys that call the region home.


While you won’t be seeing the Big Five roaming the beach, the family will have plenty of opportunities for an authentic experience by combining a stay with a traditional driving safari. In addition to this five-day, four-night experience, Jek offers classic driving safaris through quintessential destinations like Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. Combining the two gives your family the chance to experience the best of both worlds — a wildlife safari and a relaxing beach vacation in one of the world’s most spectacular locations.
