The first time we took our young children on safari, we weren't sure how their attention spans would cope with the game drives and early mornings. It was a resounding success and an incredible experience for the whole family. We've used this experience and understanding to create our Kenya family safari itineraries, which are designed specifically for adventurous, active and culturally interested families. These are not children's holidays, but adult holidays that children will enjoy. Carefully selected safari camps and well-paced itineraries are essential on a family safari to ensure that you can have an indulgently rich, wilderness experience, without having to be too self-conscious of noise and disturbing others. We understand every family has different needs and will be delighted to discuss the best options for yours.
