Leaving in 3 weeks w/ 3 kids for our first safari

Jump to last reply

Greetings!
I have read through many of your postings and have picked up many helpful tips! Many many thanks.

My children are 10, 13, &17, and we are all still pinching ourselves that this is really happening. My oldest will graduate next year and off to college so this is the last big family hurrah!

We leave @ 8pm out of Miami, arrive London in am; spend the day there and then leave around 7pm for so. africa. My concern is adjusting the younger 2 to the time change. I have read the assorted opinions for adult "sleep assistance", have any of you traveled with children?

THe other big issue is clothing; what exactly is the deal with khaki?? Is it a must for the game drive? What is the problem w/ jeans?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Jodi
