Family Activities in Kenya

Why plan a family safari to Kenya

Where wilderness safaris originated, this unique destination boasts some of the greatest culture, adventure and wildlife experiences that Africa (and the world) has to offer. No safari in Kenya is complete without spending time with Maasai warriors and immersing oneself in other rich cultural experiences so it’s a wonderful country for children to learn about what else is out there. Home to the iconic Maasai Mara National Park, which has some of the best viewing options for the Great Migration, it is no wonder it’s a Bucket List must and Kenya’s most popular tourist destination. Kenya also has beautiful and somewhat untouched coastal destinations like Lamu and a wealth of other interesting and unique national parks like Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and Amboseli National Park, which is well known for it’s Mount Kilimanjaro backdrop.
