Beginning with a night on the edge of Nairobi National Park, this safari has been created with the needs of families with teenagers in mind. It features comfortable en suite lodge accommodation all the way and uses charter flights to travel between destinations, avoiding long journeys by road. All the lodges have essential facilities such as swimming pools and the all-important complimentary Wi-Fi, and there is a long list of activities at each lodge, from game drives and guided walks to cultural tours and horse riding.
An easy first night at Ololo Lodge in Nairobi gives you the opportunity to relax and settle into Africa after what may have been a long journey. Then it is off to one of Kenya’s most rewarding private game reserves where you have exclusive access to an area teeming with wildlife. Your accommodation is Ol Donyo, famous for both its conservation and local community efforts and a homely base from which to explore the Chyulu Hills, wedged between Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks. It comes complete with views of distant Mount Kilimanjaro – the tallest peak in Africa and the world’s highest free-standing mountain - and a suite with a bed that allows you to sleep outdoors under the stars.
A short flight takes you then to the Masai Mara, home to the famous Wildebeest Migration in season and a rewarding wildlife destination at any time of year. Your accommodation here is a 3-bedroom safari house with a chef, guide and house manager on hand to ensure an exceptionally comfortable grand finale. You sit back on day and night game drives, visit Maasai villages and enjoy home-cooked meals beginning with freshly baked bread and ground coffee for breakfast and ending with old-school board games after your candle-lit supper.
This itinerary takes you back to Nairobi at the end, from where it is a short flight to a fun-filled coastal destination such as popular and lively Diani Beach.
