Family Diving Africa

A vast continent with endless opportunities for adventure above and below the waves, Africa is guaranteed to propel your family holiday to the next level with unparalleled wildlife experiences that will leave the whole family bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, no matter what age.

For a seamless introduction into the African bush, South Africa ticks all the boxes with direct flights from London, minimal jet-lag and marvellous malaria-free game reserves. For the ultimate 'beach and bush' adventure, continue to the paradise of the Bazaruto archipelago, which boasts calm, clear waters and a colourful Two Mile Reef perfect for both snorkellers and divers alike.

If you're travelling with older teens, Tanzania's Serengeti hosts the greatest wildlife migration on earth which, combined with snorkelling with whale sharks off the white sandy beaches of Mafia island, will have phones quickly forgotten.

For a African family dive holiday closer to the UK, the Red Sea in Egypt has long been luring families with sunshine and warm temperatures year-round, inviting beaches and tropical waters. Plus, we know some excellent family friendly hotels with incredible house reefs that are ideal to learn to dive.

To get well and truly off the map, decamp to the private island of Alphonse in the Seychelles, which has a whole heap of fun educational activities to immerse children into the surrounding natural environment, whether feeding giant tortoises or diving straight from the shores on the house reef - which hosts a staggering amount of marine life. Plus, with no additional vaccinations required, direct flights from London to the Seychelles and little time difference, reaching the final frontier on a family dive holiday is easy breezy.
