Kenya Family Adventure
Giraffe Manor | Lewa Conservancy | Masai Mara | Diani Beach
Your safari starts and ends in Nairobi.
Our Kenya family adventure has the best of both worlds for the whole family to enjoy. A bit of bush and a bit of beach. If its time for you to introduce your children to the wonders of nature or you would like to return for another family safari in Africa then this itinerary will tick all the boxes for you.
Starting with the bustle of Nairobi and having incredible interactions with Giraffe and baby Elephants the children will be absolutely enthralled with the information and opportunity to see these incredible animals so close. Imparting a love for wildlife and conservation early on is an great gift to impart.
Spending time in the Lewa and Masai Mara on game drives, nature walks and cultural experiences will open your eyes to the vast differences we experience and how much we take for granted each day. Big Five game viewing in both these areas is fantastic and encounters are plentiful. Elephant, Buffalo and many different antelope species will amaze you. Predators like Lion, Cheetah, Wild Dogs and Hyena are frequent.
After the adrenaline of the bush the Swahili coast is the time to sit back and relax. get in a round of golf, take the whole family snorkeling or just lie back at the pool while the kids swim and soak up the sun. A Kenya family adventure will keep everyone happy and entertained.
