Kenya is all about savannah sunsets and ochre earth, snow-capped mountains and a lush palm-fringed coastline. This is a place where elephants wander and lions roam. Multitudes of wildebeest and zebras pepper the plains, while hippos bask in their waterholes. Kenya family holidays are pure magic. Eyes will glitter with excitement and widen in awe seeing safari giants, as the superstars of the savannah reveal themselves in their natural habitat. Stay in charming lodges located deep in national parks and spend your days watching for animals and listening to the squeals of delight when the little ones (and you) see any kind of movement.
Children can learn to make bows and arrows, to fish with Masai warriors, and how to identify animal tracks. There is also riding and camel trekking for those more inclined to adventure. Explore at your own pace or head to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean for more adventures of the beach variety on the tranquil Kenyan coast. Navigate mangrove creeks by kayak, and try windsurfing and waterskiing. Make sure you don’t miss the stunning wildlife of the Rift Valley lakes and Lake Turkana where fossils of the earliest humans have been found. Family safari holiday in Kenya? Hakuna matata.

What you can find on Kenya family holidays that you won't find anywhere else?
A family holiday in Kenya offers a range of activities from game drives (by day and night) featuring the cast from The Lion King to bush breakfasts and visits to local villages that will open children's eyes to a different way of life where tribal people still lead simple, traditional lives without a PlayStation.
Depending on the accommodation, children can enjoy special activities with Samburu and Maasai guides, learning about the uses of plants, how to identify animal tracks and so on.
A family safari to Kenya is easily combinable with a family beach holiday on Kenya's Indian Ocean coast, and you should make time at the beginning or end of the trip for a visit to see the baby elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi.
