Top reasons for booking your family safari to kenya
Rolling savannah, glowing sunsets and wildlife rich plains are what most of us picture when we think of Kenya; and you won’t be disappointed. Fitting the ‘Classic Africa’ image, Kenya is bound to give both you and your young ones the experience of your lifetime and watching the mixture of excitement and pure adrenaline on their first lion encounter is just priceless.
Between July and November, the Great Migration in the Masai Mara means some spectacular wildlife sightings for the entire family as millions of wildebeest and zebra swarm the plains, under the watchful eye of the big cats and crocodiles. But this is not the only time this incredible area is good for wildlife, in fact Kenya has a higher concentration of game than Tanzania throughout the year, and the parks are smaller. Smaller parks means shorter drive times – and less ‘are we there yet?’ from the kids in the back – although it is possible to get from lodge to lodge, and park to park, via light aircraft, eliminating hefty drives altogether. So your only drives will be out on safari as you watch the stories of the Africa savannah unfold before your eyes…
No matter how many times they’ve watched The Lion King, Kenya is ideal for that first family safari!
