I have been booking with DialAFlight for many years. Ian is the best
Amy was so helpful. I was in a state booking a ticket in a family emergency. She made sure I got the best deal and helped by changing my ticket so that I could get to my family as quickly as possible.
Family crisis. Very effective in an emergency. Thanks to your team for advice.
Thank you for ALL your help in booking my flight to Johannesburg. I'll be in touch for my next trip.
Service and personal manner of Oli and other sales staff was really touching and just brilliant.
Competitive flights package with usual top quality service
Everything went really well.Thank you.
Everything was great. Just not very impressed with British Airways. Prefer to fly with Virgin.
Wonderful trip to Johannesburg, Namibia, Franschhoek and Cape Town. Thanks to Kelly
A very professional company with seemingly well versed and educated staff. Really consultative without the usual drama
Very good service, thank you.
Mant thanks for your help.
Great service. Our agent whom we booked through remained available to answer questions, assist and adjust booking requirements throughout the whole process.
A first class service as always going above and beyond!
Thank you to DialAFlight, especially my consultant Leo, for being for so kind, patient and explaining everything. The follow up calls towards the departure date were also very reassuring
Turkish Airlines are OK but transferring through their new Istanbul airport is a real pain. It is vast and takes a very long walk and time to transfer.
Excellent flights, efficient booking - feel very confident booking with DialAFlight.
Spencer and Matthew really helpful. I couldn't print boarding cards so they did these for me and scanned them to me. Your staff are brilliant - really helpful and nothing too much trouble.
Always get good service from DialAFlight
Thank you so much for organising our trip, it was fantastic!
Billy was first class
As always with DialAFlight, everything went according to plan. Virgin premium economy very worthwhile. Thanks to Ian and your team for a great trip!
Very helpful once again. All went smoothly
The food on the return flight was abysmal considering being in premium economy.
Get BA to rethink their meal times on the return from Durban. They served breakfast about 08.00 but no lunch until 17.30. Awful long time between meals on a daytime flight
Lily has been great in organising our last few trips. We will be back in touch with her again for our next adventure for sure.
Scott was amazing. Have already recommended him to a friend for flights to SA and Zimbabwe
Everything always goes smooothly.
Once again Helen provided exceptional help and advice. Arrangements worked perfectly.
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!
