Family safaris in Kenya

Kenya is a great destination for first time safari goers, with excellent game viewing and a huge diversity of scenery and activities that makes it a wonderful place for families.

Direct flights from the UK and only a couple of hours time difference help to make Kenya accessible for children from around six years old and up.

There are a number of camps and lodges on safari that welcome children and have guides who will spend time showing them the 'Little Five' (buffalo weaver, elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, ant lion and rhino beetle), teaching them about Maasai culture and how to track animals.

The Kenyan coast and surrounding islands also have a number of hotels good for children from which they can explore local ruins, try out their bargaining skills at the markets or have a go at some water sports.
