Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge welcomes families with children of all ages.

The lodge is the ideal choice for a family safari with a fence surrounding the lodge’s perimeter and a whole host of children’s programs and activities.


kids activities

Kids just love our special and educational activities designed to educate them about the bush and keep them busy while mom and dad enjoy a game drive or venture out on a walking safari. Our friendly expert guides will accompany children as they learn about animal tracking around the grounds of the lodge. Other activities include making plaster of paris moulds of their favourite animal, making elephant dung paper and paper maché African masks. Making camp fires and toasting
marshmallows, star gazing with hot chocolate and visiting our interactive room with skulls and snake skins.

Each child will also receive a back pack that includes a big five colouring book, colouring pencils, water bottle, torch and children's binoculars.
