Meg Nolan is a veteran travel writer, editor and consultant who knows a thing or two about bucket-list trips when it comes to families. She is a mom of two rambunctious young boys who keep her on her toes. Adamant about passing along the wonder of travel, Nolan has taken her sons on trips up and down the East Coast, all over the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.
Seeing the migration crossing in Africa is one of the more magnificent spectacles the animal kingdom puts on. If you want to plan a trip this summer to witness it, I suggest heading to Nairobi and Mt. Kenya, iconic spots once called home by plenty of swashbuckling historic and celebrity figures. The romantic stories of these characters, combined with the incredible wildlife, will easily entertain all ages. Base your family at Kenya's trifecta of luxury properties, starting with The Norfolk in Nairobi, then onto the Mt. Kenya Safari Club, with scenic views of Mount Kenya, and the Fairmont Mara Safari Club, which is surrounded on three sides by the Mara River.
