Ker & Downey’s Kenya Family Safari is the ideal family getaway in the African bush. It’s an all-ages luxury adventure through some of the country’s most memorable landscapes and game-rich areas.
The Kenya Family Safari begins with one night at the unforgettable Giraffe Manor, just outside of Nairobi. It’s world-renown for its resident herd of Rothschild giraffe who can often be found poking their long necks through the windows in search of a treat. Your children will delight at the interaction with the unabashed animals.
Then you and your family are off off to Ol Pejeta Bush Camp in the vast Laikipia region. The Laikipia plateau has one of the most diverse mammal populations in Kenya, including a number of endangered species, so it’s a great introduction to the African bush. It’s also home to roughly half of Kenya’s 600 black rhinos and more than 2,000 elephants that migrate between it and the Mount Kenya and Samburu regions. You host at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is Alex Hunter, a dynamic personality that is eager to share his knowledge and open the safari world to young explorers.
Your Kenya Family Safari continues in the private wildlife conservancy of Saruni Samburu at the top of the Kalama Mountains. The pristine wilderness sets the stage for an exciting safari through the Samburu National Reserve, Buffalo Springs National Park, West Gate Conservancy, and the Kalama area. Round out your safari here with a visit to a traditional village and the local caves that feature paintings and rock art.
Conclude your Kenya family safari in the famed Masai Mara and your private accommodations at the Mara House, a private bush home that allows for a fully catered and customized itinerary. The Mara House is well-known for their multigenerational safari experience. Your guide’s intimate knowledge of the area and passion shines through on each safari as you seek out the rich variety of wildlife found in the Masai Mara. And young children are captivated by bush-wise facts, traditional games, local folklore tales, and the incredible stories of life in the bush.
Create memories in Kenya your children will talk about for a lifetime.
