I just returned from a fabulous 2 week safari arrange by Roar Africa.
Everything about our experience from pretrip planning to the actual safari was seamless .While you initially deal with their US personeel, once your trip and itinerary are set, you will have a direct contact in Africa to refine your trip , as well as any questions you may have. All their communications are detailed and informative. What we most appreciated was our seamless transfers from the airport to all our destinations , and back to the airport at the end of our trip . We visited Tanzania, and Kenya, but they will arrange a trip to any part of the continent. The very best feature of Roar is their expertise in tailoring a trip to your specifications . And if you really are not sure of exactly what you want , they will make reccommendations based on their interviews with you .

The lodges they arranged were all excellent. You'd be surprised how much luxury you can have in the middle of the bush , and how all the recommended lodges fit perfectly into the ecosystem . The service and caring of the staff at all the locations were exceptional, and you will not find more pleasant and happy people anywhere in the world.

I could go on and on about individual experiences but a few pictures should suffice to give you the picture. If you are looking for a truly upscale African safari experience, you need look no further than Roar Africa

Roar arranged the vacation of a lifetime for us, from ultra luxurious safari lodges with a casual, warm atmosphere to an amazing guide in Capetown who was able to make us feel the history and social changes in this fascinating region since the fall of Apartheid. We could not have organized this ourselves, as getting the most out of our 2 weeks required small planes, guides through airports, and arranged drivers. We were able to relax and enjoy 2 safaris, the beautiful Zambezi and Victoria Falls, and the wine country while making new friends and managing to be comfortable with only a tiny suitcase.

Perfection. Roar Africa thought of everything. Every detail was covered, from making reservations in wonderful restaurants to meeting us at the airport and making our travel easy. I have traveled a lot with high-end organizations and our trip with Roar in South Africa was simply perfection. On safari, we saw every animal we had hoped to see. We even got to observe wild dogs consuming a kill.

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

        About The Family Adventure Company

        Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

        Who Travels With Them?

        A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

        Where Do They Operate?

        Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

        How Does it Work?

        No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

        Why Travel With Them?

        The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
