Here at Austin-Lehman Adventures (ALA), we believe some of the best learning is done outside of the classroom. For 2009, we’re offering three departures of active and edifying family safaris to South Africa targeting winter, spring and summer schooSouth africa familyl holidays.

Designed for families with children 7 years and older, emphasis is put on fun, culturally-immersive, small group learning opportunities that benefit both kids and parents. Accompanied by veteran nature guides and rangers, participants will get up-close with iconic wildlife on foot, by bike, on horseback and by 4-wheel drive in South Africa’s safe and secluded private wildlife reserves.

A trip to a township school to watch local artists create trinkets from recycled products is also included. Visits to a glass-blowing studio and animal petting-farm round out the week.

We always limit the size of our programs to increase access afforded only to small groups. “Our credo has always been smaller is better,” says Dan Austin, co-founder and operating director. “With an average of just twelve guests, led by local experts, we can go places and do things that larger safari companies can’t.”

Africa ZebraWe also arrange custom journeys for as few as two guests. Tailored to personal schedules and budgets these exclusives offer better wildlife viewing opportunities and provide increased access to special and spontaneous experiences.

The South Africa Family Adventure Safari begins in Cape Town. From upscale family-friendly lodgings guests head into the bush of Waterberg and Welgevonden Private Game Reserves to observe elephant, rhino, giraffe and lion. Home-base for the remainder of the trip is Cape Town where families will swim with African penguins, tour a local township and school and enjoy a regional wine and cheese tasting tour.

Three 10-day / 9-night holidays begin Feb. 15, Apr. 5 and July 5, 2009. The nearly all-inclusive per person cost, double, is $5,998 ($1,280 single supplement); $5,398 first child; $4,798 each additional child. Children must be age 7 and older.
