A family safari holiday is unforgettable and Kenya is the original and still as wonderful as ever.
Apart from being the land of the Masai Mara, Tsavo and Taita Hills, Kenya’s recognised for a longstanding commitment to conservation. The penalties for poaching here are harsher than anywhere else in Africa. Game parks are well managed and private reserves closely monitored for safety and sustainability. It’s also the country for the Great Rift Valley, stunning views of Kilimanjaro, Mombasa on the Indian Ocean and ancient living cultures of people like the Samburu, Maasai, Turkana, Swahili and Kikuyu.
Flights all year round from London to Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu.
A world-class destination for all-inclusive family safaris.
One of Africa’s leading big-5 countries and the continent’s leader in game conservation and protection.
Popular game reserves like Masai Mara and Tsavo are balanced by Laikipia’s smaller, less crowded conservancies and several national parks and reserves.
Amboseli Elephant Park is in Kenya.
The country sits on the equator and has fantastic beach resorts in and around Mombasa on the south east coast.
Southern and central Kenya are safe to visit with kids and safari accommodation is superb ranging from camps to beautiful, traditional lodges.
All-inclusive family holidays are the best and easiest way to safari in Kenya. If you’re driving remember, it’s a wild and rugged country, subject to extremes of weather and mostly sparsely populated. Avoid the northern regions and in particular the Somalian border. If you’re visiting one of the major cities, don’t drive if you can avoid it, use taxis or have your hotel organise transport.
