Following footprints in Tanzania - by Phoebe Millard, aged 15

When we visited Saadani National Park, the thing I was most surprised by was how many game drives we went on. I was expecting to go on a few, but not get into the jeep every day! They were so much fun. We learnt something different every day. For example, one day we would take camera traps disguised as pieces of tree and position them in popular areas like waterholes, that animals went. Then, at the end of the week we all collected our camera traps and had a look at what we had got.

Top 10 tips for Tanzania - by Lucien Millard, aged 8

1. You must remember to take your malaria pills every day - swallow them with a banana is the easiest way.

2. Just as we did at Longleat Safari Park in the UK, when we went on the Longleat Family African Safari we took a pair of binoculars to spot giraffes and even smaller animals.

3. It’s a good idea to remember to bring a torch because Africa can be very dark at night.

4. Don't be surprised if an elephant charges at you - but don't panic at any stage. Ask the driver to return to the road if necessary.

Elephants in Tanzania - by Gabriel Millard, aged 13

Their names are Colossus, Charlie and Jan. Despite their names these are not human beings. They are in fact, giant African elephants; and they live in Sadaani National Park in Tanzania.

Cutest animals in Africa - by Honey Millard, aged 10

Before we went to Tanzania, we visited Longleat Safari Park in the UK. I loved feeding the red deer from our jeep and it was fantastic when the monkeys climbed all over our car. The animals are a bit wilder in Africa, but in Longleat you are always guaranteed to see them as they don’t hide in the bush. Anyway, here is my list of the cutest animals we saw in Africa.

1. One of the cutest animals we saw in Africa, I think THE cutest was a tiny baby elephant. We spotted a tiny teeny one, just taller than some long grass. It was so sweet. We all took millions of photos of it.

Rosie Millard on the Longleat Family African Safari

After five days on the Longleat African Safari, my four children can tell the difference between a leopard’s pawprint and a hyena’s. They know what a Carmine Bee-eater looks like. They have found out what sort of animals visit a waterhole at night, thanks to an infra-red camera trap. They also understand that when Charlie the big bull elephant is pawing the ground, flapping his ears and trotting towards us trumpeting, it’s not really very dangerous. Really?

Tigers & the Taj Mahal by Honey - aged 10

As we heaved out of the plane, I think all of us were nervous about meeting the other families - each of us thinking about what the families would be like, the kids wondering whether the other children would get along with us and my mum and dad probably hoping we would be normal and polite!

As the first day went by we got to know the other families a bit better, there were 2 other kids involved in this mad adventure and they were quite quiet at first and then their friendly personalities came out.
