Kenya Family Safaris

Wondering if it’s a good idea to take your kids on safari in Africa? Kenya has long been delivering safe and rewarding family safaris in world-renowned Big 5 game reserves as well as beach holidays on the country’s dazzling coastline and Indian Ocean islands. And let’s not forget that this East African country is also home to the greatest wildlife spectacle of them all – the Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration.

Spend an unforgettable family safari in Kenya tracking big cats on game drives on a Masai Mara safari; drifting over vast plains on a scenic hot air balloon flight; going on guided bush walks led by red-robed Maasai warriors and hand feeding giraffe at the well-known Giraffe Manor. And when they’re not with you, your kids can join in junior ranger programmes packed with unforgettable experiences such as learning to shoot a bow and arrow, making fire with sticks or casting animal tracks in plaster.

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 in Kenya includes private villas, intimate tented camps and luxury lodges in prime locations from the Masai Mara and Amboseli National Park to the beach-fringed island of Lamu. And if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, contact one of our well-travelled Africa Safari Experts and they will tailor-make a Kenya family safari guaranteed to thrill every member of your family.
