Family Safaris in Kenya.
Kenya is a safari for the family with school age children and above who love nature and wildlife.
For families with children slightly older who have an abundance of energy and excitement to expend we recommend Kenya whole heartedly. Thought of as the traditional safari location Kenya’s well established infrastructure lends itself well to families travelling, and the camps we select purposefully make a family safari unforgettable for the right reasons.
After an overnight flight into Nairobi your family will be met and transferred to the local airport where you’ll board a scheduled light aircraft into the Amboseli National Park for a three night stay at Tortilis Camp.
Amboseli is located at the foot of the towering Mount Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest and the tallest free standing mountain in the world. At just under 150 square miles, the park lies at the heart of a much larger eco-system which straddles the border with Tanzania.
Tortilis camp is perfect for a family safari with families with slightly older children which are active and interested in learning about nature up close. Activities during a stay at Tortilis include insightful game drives, bush walks and meals, sundowners, cultural visits, massages and a swimming pool.
Amboseli is famous for its large elephant population and this particular region seems to support extra- ordinarily large “tuskers” with huge spears of ivory almost scarping the ground as they walk. Predator sightings are common with lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and jackal all see regularly. Buffalo laze the days away in the deep swamps with wildebeest, zebra, antelope and giraffe found on the plains.
After a fantastic few days of superb game viewing and really getting acquainted with Africa you’ll game drive to the airstrip and board a scheduled flight to Loisaba in Kenya’s Laikipia region.
Loisaba is located in a vast rugged area in the northern Laikipia region where rolling hills and savannah seem to stretch to infinity... and beyond! The wildlife which roams through this breathtaking scenery is abundant with elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, giraffe and antelope a plenty.
Loisaba has a wide range of activities available for teenagers, day and night game drives, quad biking, horse riding, walking with your guide, rafting and even camel trekking. There are just as many opportunities to relax also as each room has its own private viewing deck, which looks out toward Mount Kenya. Facilities at the lodge include a swimming pool, tennis court and spa.
The emphasis at Loisaba is on a the wide range of activities available to guests with day and night game drives on the reserve providing fabulous opportunities to see the wildlife up close. For those with a more adventurous spirit there is quad biking, horse riding, walking with a guide, rafting and camel trekking. For a very special night out under the stars are the infamous elevated platforms aptly named the ‘star beds’. The family can share a platform
A unique experience at Loisaba is a night at the “Star-Beds” which are incredible tree-houses built far out in the wilderness where guests can experience complete isolation for a night under the stars. The “Star-Beds” are well equipped with proper beds, en-suite bathroom and a few comforts but the idea is to completely absorb yourself in Africa for the night.
After a few nights in Laikipia you’ll whizz of by light aircraft once again to the Masai Mara. Where we propose you spend a few game packed days at Kicheche a classic tented camp located on the Aitong Plains in the northern Masai Mara. The camp takes great pride in its friendly and relaxed atmosphere where guests become friends.
The majority of tents are in secluded positions overlooking the plains and nearby hills whilst others are closer together for families and friends. The spacious Nyati tent acts as the camp lounge with comfortable seating, a library, board games, cards and local crafts.
The camp cooks produce delicious and healthy meals each day and the menu features both African and international dishes so there are something for all the families’ tastes. Fresh produce is flown in regularly with bread and pastries baked daily in camp.
For game viewing you will be spoilt for choice the Mara and watching wildlife at close range but without encroaching on their space is endlessly fascinating and the guides' instincts and knowledge provide superb family wildlife experience. Whilst in the Masai Mara the family can enjoy a variety of activities in additional to game drives such as walking safaris with a highly qualified guides and armed rangers, and cultural visits to a local Maasai village. Experience Africa together and may breathtaking memories to share forever.
