Kenya Family Safaris

Combine all of Kenya’s highlights on a fun, family-friendly holiday that includes both spectacular wildlife and lots of activities. Go mountain biking, try horse riding and dive off waterfalls in Laikipia, before learning Maasai bush skills and spotting big cats in the conservancies of the Masai Mara.

Kenya’s interior offers a mix of adventure and wildlife for all ages, whilst the coast is the perfect place to unwind and relax on beautiful white beaches.

Advice from Our Family Experts

“Upgrade to a private vehicle, so it is just you and your family. This gives greater flexibility and privacy. Also consider adding in extra days at each place, so that you don’t have to pack up quite as frequently.”
