A family holiday to Kenya can create memories never to be forgotten. Forget Disneyland and imagine your children seeing a wild lion or an elephant for the first time. The photographic opportunities will be priceless and the children will not only have the time of their lives but also gain a valuable educational experience.
Our family holidays, however, avoid the massive beach resorts and throngs of jeeps. Tucked away in hidden private reserves and beach locations we have carefully selected small and friendly camps and lodges perfect providing personal attention for families.
Our dedicated family specialists understand family holidays. A lot of time and money will be invested getting this year's family holiday just right and parents want to place their trust in someone who will ensure the holiday is seamless from start to finish. Your family's personal specialist will have visited most, if not all of the camps, lodges and hotels included in your itinerary and will have carefully assessed their suitability for your family. In addition to this, wherever possible plans will be made to include any special trips or cultural experiences that will create those lasting memories for this once-in-a-life-time family holiday.
Wildlife-rich game reserves, white sand beaches, Maasai warriors, once-in-a-lifetime activities and all the atmosphere of big game Africa - how could you not bring the kids on safari in Kenya? Our selection of family-friendly accommodation and tours includes private villas, intimate tented camps and luxury lodges in prime locations from the Masai Mara and Amboseli National Park
