Family-friendly Safari Lodges in Kenya
One of East Africa’s favourite safari destinations, Kenya is a beautiful diversity of landscapes, endowed with more than 40 national parks and nature reserves stretching between Lake Victoria and the Indian Ocean.
Though only a few hours from the country’s capital, Mbweha Camp’s idyllic location nestled against the southern border of Lake Nakuru National Park, makes it feel like you’re at the edge of the world. Eco-friendly and welcoming families with children of all ages in any one of the 10 rustic lava-stone cottages, the camp is the perfect base to enjoy activities within the National Park, and beyond. Supporting conservation, as well as the local community, Mbweha is committed to sustainability and responsible tourism.
The first property to ever be built in the Masai Mara Nature Reserve in 1962, Keekorok Lodge is ideally situated in the path of the annual migration and is unparalleled in its safari adventure offerings. Surrounded by endless miles of vast plains, the views are breathtaking. The perfect location for a responsible safari experience that the whole family can enjoy, the lodge has adopted a number of sustainable practices, and aims to serve and protect its spectacular surroundings.
