Ten Hip Family Vacations
|The elephants have it join em (Corbis)|
Thanks to Abercrombie & Kent you can book that dream vacation now. Their Signature Southern Africa Safari Trip to Botswana and Victoria Falls, recommended for ages nine and older, is everything you've always dreamed of AfricaÂ—animal safaris, epic landscapes, and more. And forget about the rumors of having to endure 1,001 hassles to get you and yours ready for a trip to AfricaÂ—chances are your kids already got all the immunization shots they'll need for the trip before enrolling in grade school. Besides, once you're in-country and your kids spot their first warthog, wildebeest, or giraffe in the wild, nothing else will matter.
Botswana is one of Africa's most stable nations and also offers some of the best game- viewing. And the relatively small lodges on private and public game parks ensure that you see many more critters than people in jeeps.
Go for broke and add a day-trip to Stanley's Camp, where led by guides you walk through the bushland inhabited with by semi-habituated elephants. They allow you to stroke their wrinkled sides and sit down on their huge feet.
