If you want a family holiday that gives an episode of CBBC's Deadly 60 a run for its money, look no further than the endless plains of East Africa. Iconic vistas, dotted with Acacia trees and teeming with wildlife, are the backdrop to a holiday in the Masai Mara. You and your kids can track wildlife by jeep, or on foot with a ranger, learn how to make fire and throw spears like a pro, all under the guidance of a Masai warrior.
Steppes Travel offers an eight-day family safari, from £2,680 per adult and £1,970 per child (based on a family of four), staying fully inclusive in a private house with your own vehicle, specialist guide and flights. 0845 073 0419,steppestravel.co.uk
