Itinerary Description:

Your Kenya family safari begins at Nairobi's unforgettable Giraffe Manor, where the children will delight in the daily visitors of giraffes as they pop their heads in the windows to greet you in the morning and join you at breakfast. After an evening delighting in the giraffes, you will transfer to the Laikipia equatorial region, one of the last refuges for the rare Black and White Rhinos. There is an enormous amount of wildlife and game throughout the Ewaso Nyiro River ecosystem, and you will get to experience it all from your interactive and eco-friendly accommodations at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp. This exclusive tented camp is owned and managed by the infectious Alex Hunter of Insiders Africa, who is especially passionate about opening up the safari world to young and inquiring minds. Spend two days setting out on game drives, bush walks, and behind-the-scenes tours with Alex and his experienced guides through the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a Big Five playground and sanctuary where endangered species like the Jackson's Hartebeest, Grevy's Zebra, cheetah, chimpanzee, and rhino are protected around the clock. Three of the world's remaining five Northern White Rhinos make their home here.

Continuing on to your next Kenya family safari destination, where your family cottage awaits at Saruni Samburu, a stylish and intimate safari lodge within a 240,000 acre private wildlife conservancy just north of Samburu National Reserve. From your eco-chic, open-air cottage at the top of the Kalama Mountains, you will have spectacular views of northern Kenya and the multiple wildlife magnet waterholes below. This is a quiet luxury safari experience off the beaten path, where game activities, village visits, and excursions to painted caves are all on the agenda.

The final stop on your Kenya family safari is within the famed Masai Mara, one of Africa's most famous and game rich areas. Mara House will act as your private bush home during your stay, allowing for a fully-catered, customizable, and relaxing schedules for soaking in the wildlife just outside the front door. Don't be surprised if breakfast is an entire family affair, with generations of zebra, elephant, giraffe, impala, baboons, and warthog congregating at the famous Ol Chorro waterhole nearby. Venturing beyond the house, day and night game drives are led by private guides whose contagious passion for the region is sure to rub off on any guest, young or old. Children's sense of wonder and imagination is sure to be ignited as they learn bush-wise facts, traditional games, local folklore tales, and incredible stories of life in the bush -- memories that will stay with them as they fall asleep to the sound of the Mara's animals walking by in the night.
