Larry once again did a fabulous job for us and we had the best three weeks ever
Colin is amazing - really professional, helpful and knowledgeable
Using the DialAflight app was wonderful. It was so easy to check in. It really made life easy and worry free
Excellent service with particular mention to Bobby . His attention to detail and understanding of our requirements was brilliant. He then maintained communication up to and after travel.
Flight was superb, service was friendly, everything was as promised.
Both journeys were fine, except the Addis Ababa to London leg was spoilt by an Ethiopian lady who thought that she had a right to sleep in my seat whilst I was waiting in the toilet queue!
I wouldn't go anywhere else! Stacey is nothing short of amazing and I have already recommended her many times to friends
Travelling is so much easier and pleasant since we started using DialAFlight. Thanks Keely
There was a problem with the wheelchair assistance at Schipol and Heathrow. Not really down to you.
Everything ran smoothly. Good seats were booked.
Another great trip and many thanks to Morgan for her help and knowledge.
Great prices and a reliable service
Excellent seating organised. Disabled assistance arranged.
DialAFlight never lets us down and service above and beyond is normal. Would not use anyone else.
Oscar is brilliant. Everything went like clockwork.
Thanks to Bradley and team for setting up of details and admin
Saf's service was absolutely outstanding as usual
Superb service from Niall
A holiday of a lifetime - everything went as planned by you!
Very, very good service
I was told that my baggage allowance was the same on all the flights. It was a good job I checked as the allowance on the internal flight in South Africa was less
Very happy with your service. BA flight very good but food was awful.
Excellent. Will definitely use again.
Marshall was excellent
Harry came up trumps again - everything went well
I am a DialAFlight fan. The service removes a lot of stress from arranging it myself.
Howard is 10/10 helpful
As always, thank you Robin.
Kept me informed. Friendly staff. Good deals. Would use again.
1. Mix it up
Safaris work well with kids of all ages, but (especially without a smartphone or a tablet) they can get bored rather quickly these days. So vary up your trip with walks, kids’ activities and even horse rides in between game drives to keep each day feeling new. Poo tracking tends to be a popular choice with the little ones too.
2. Hit the beach
Mix things up even more by adding on a beach trip to your safari for the perfect accompaniment to what can be a busy schedule. Completely unwind and forget about itineraries for a few days to round off your trip somewhere kids can play and parents can relax.
3. Don’t be afraid to pay a little extra
We all like to save money where possible, but some areas of a safari experience are really worth paying that little bit more for. Your guides and vehicles for example, will make or break the highlight of your holiday and a private vehicle will ensure a more comfortable ride along the way.
4. Choose your accommodation wisely
There are many factors that come into play when choosing your camp or lodge, few more important than how suitable they are for kids. For instance, different camps offer different levels of discount for kids, making some of the seemingly more expensive camps actually cheaper for families. It’s also worth considering if you would require a larger family tent, or if you’d prefer a few separate ones.
5. There’s more to it than the Big Five
Plenty of safari-goers end up obsessing over lions and leopards, when there’s so much to enjoy and to learn too! Your guide can point out smaller creatures, plants and insects that can be just as interesting for kids and will help to stave off boredom whilst searching for more elusive animals.
6. Be prepared
There’s little worse than getting up early and setting off at the perfect time of day to be interrupted or to realise you’ve left something at the lodge. So make sure you bring your binoculars (plural – for easier sharing!) and your guide books to tick off what you’ve seen to keep everyone happy. And please make sure everyone’s been to the loo before you leave!
