Safari Overview

Suppose you’ve always wanted to take the whole family on an Africa safari holiday. In that case, this Kenya Family Safari package for ten days is a perfect choice for everyone, including children between the age of 4-10 years. We have selected the best family-friendly properties to cater to the children’s activities on the savannah and at the beach in Mombasa.

The trip starts in the unique Nairobi National Park that presents a great introduction to Kenya’s savannah wilderness. On the Mara Plains, where the family will spend the first half of the holiday trip, the great wildebeest migration will highlight morning and afternoon game drives. Bush picnics, sundowners, and Maasai cultural experiences are all part of this exploration. A balloon safari flight over the bush plains will reveal spectacular views of animals and landscapes to fill your memories with Africa’s wilderness.

The second half of the trip will fly the family to Mombasa, check-in at the Whitesands Beach Resort and Spa, and spend the next four nights doing next to nothing. With swimming pools, a kids’ play club, gym, spa, fine dining, and dazzling white sand beach, the whole family will be rewarded on this fine holiday trip.
