Beginning with the embrace of curious giraffes and the original ‘Pride Rock’, this made-for-family adventure delivers the experience of the hugely popular movie, The Lion King. You will see hornbills and hyenas, lion prides and zebra herds plus warthogs and wildebeest and all in the safe hands of experienced guides and excellent safari accommodation. Flying between destinations removes the challenge of long and dusty drives with children, and our chosen lodges have plenty to keep everyone occupied – from massages and fine dining for the adults to horse riding, mountain biking and games for the younger ones.
This 8-day tour opens in Nairobi and a night at the Giraffe Manor where your family will meet some of Africa’s tallest house guests: giraffes wander the grounds freely and often poke their heads through the window to see what’s for breakfast – it’s quite a start to the safari!
Then you divide the next six nights between three of Kenya’s best wildlife destinations. In the Laikipia region you will stay on a private rhino sanctuary and visit the rock that reportedly inspired the filmmakers to create Pride Rock – in fact, you can sit and have a sundowner drink on it! Then it’s on to Samburu National Reserve where you’ll go on game drives and track lions with Samburu warriors before finishing off in style at a tented camp in the Masai Mara. Here you will enjoy a classic savannah safari experience with lion prides and hyena clans – and if in season, the spectacle of tens of thousands of migrating wildebeest.
