Family Safaris Indian Ocean Islands

Mauritius - Mauritius is the ideal family beach resort destination to combine with a South African Family Safari. Mauritius is mostly a Malaria free destination in and around the beach resorts. Precautions for Malaria  all year round are only essential in rural areas. There are no are  no significant Malaria risk in other areas or on Rodriguez Island. The Eastern Coast has long powdery white beaches and the West has the best weather and less wind. Most Hotels and resorts in Mauritius offer programs like kiddies Clubs and many other fun filled activities to satisfy the needs of any member of the family especially the children. The Beach resorts are large and situated close to each other and apart from golf, tennis and volleyball, resorts usually offer kayaks, windsurfing, snorkelling and small sailboats free of charge. You will have to pay extra for jet skis, water skiing, scuba diving and parasailing.  

The Seychelles - The Seychelles is not a place for the budget conscious traveller or family. There are many exclusive private islands for the discerning traveller to explore. The Seychelles is great to combine with Kenya & Tanzania or even South Africa, with a few flight connections per week. The Seychelles is a family destination for families whose children will be able to appreciate the exclusivity of this destination which has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This is why the Seychelles might work for families with slightly older children. An advantage of the Seychelles for families is that it is a malaria free destination. The Seychelles have a long tradition in eco-tourism and a very pro-active approach to conservation. Entire islands have been set aside as reserves and there are marine parks, as well as the forest and mountain reserves, for you to explore. Although the Mauritian beaches are beautiful, there is no mistaking that Seychelles beaches are better. In fact, beaches in Seychelles often make it into top beaches of the world surveys.

***Something to mention is that while Mauritius has many activities including motorised water sports the Seychelles mostly do not allow motorized water sport as the areas around the beaches are protected marine areas.
