Luxury African Safari Tours for Seniors

One of the most popular travel adventures for seniors is a trip to Africa to participate in a safari. Many seniors are surprised to learn just how luxurious these safaris can be. Many safaris are offered on an all-inclusive basis, meaning that your transportation, tour guide, food, drinks and accommodation are all included in one price. There is a lot to explore on the continent of Africa, so make sure you choose a long trip that gives you enough time to do things like gorilla trekking, hiking, visiting Mt. Kilimanjaro and photograph African wildlife.

A luxury safari vacation can also be surprisingly affordable. There are a wide variety of deals to be found if you research and plan out your itinerary in advance.

Which safari tours are recommended for seniors?

Before booking your trip be sure to research safari options that cater specifically to the senior demographic. Some companies like Yellow Zebra Safaris and Kanyezi Safari have built a reputation for offering tours designed specifically around seniors’ needs. This includes things like less walking, comfortable SUVs and more places to rest and relax. They also offer some of the most comfortable camps and lodges so that seniors can feel relaxed during the evenings and nights.

Are there packages for senior couples?

There are certain safari vacation packages that are perfectly suited for senior couples. At the top of this list is the Heaven Restaurant and Boutique Hotel located in Rwanda. No children are permitted in this luxury hotel and all of the amenities are designed with older travellers in mind. It offers customers a bar, lounge, free drinks, complementary toiletries, a full body massage and spa. Another added benefit is the complementary breakfast each guest can enjoy.
