Kenya Family Safari
Tours made for you
Experience extraordinary wildlife on a family tour in Kenya
Kenya is the ultimate family-friendly safari destination. Stunning landscapes, warm people and iconic wildlife make for adventures and meaningful cultural connections. Seek out the Big 5 in the Maasai Mara, breakfast with giraffes, find huge elephant herds and horse ride in Lewa.
Our Kenyan family trips are all about extraordinary wildlife and true adventure in style and safety inside Africa’s unparalleled wild playground.
In fact this country manages all on its own when it comes to wowing you with its spectacular game, scenery and cultural treasures. However, it’s our practised expertise in planning family trips and our comprehensive knowledge of Kenya that will help you to create a holiday that suits you all, and one that is memorable, relaxing and first-class all the way.
We can help you decide on the right style of safari experiences for everyone involved. Perhaps you’d prefer a lodge that combines big game with secure borders so the younger ones can run around safely? Or for the more adventurous, tented camp safaris or trekking with the oldest tribe in the world (the Maasai), horse riding safaris, and lodges that offer special kid’s clubs and activities?
Kenya is also home to some extraordinarily diverse game reserves that each offer something unique, as well as thrilling landscapes and delightful cultural encounters with its people.

Kenya is one of my favourite family safari destinations - bright, vibrant and full of friendly characters and of course, incredible wildlife. It’s such an exciting destination for little children (and big ones), everyone always feels so looked after - the local guides make everyone feel special and have lots of tricks up their sleeves to keep everyone entertained.
