Family memories that last a lifetime

Experience your child's amazement as they see African wildlife for the first time

Kenya has long been regarded not just as one of the best wildlife destinations in the world, but renowned as one of the best spots for a family safari. The opportunity to witness your children's excitement, enthusiasm and energy at seeing animals in the wild is truly special, and with many unique experiences available from sunrise hot air balloons over the Masai Mara to camping out under the stars, we'll ensure your family safari is a holiday you never forget.

At Far and Wild, we have real experience taking our own families away on safari so we understand your concerns and priorities when planning a family safari. A key element of your trip is where you stay, and we've hand-picked our favourite properties in Kenya for a family adventure. Lodges which don't just tolerate children, they embrace their curiosity with 'poo safaris', expand their horizons with safe sleepouts complete with hot chocolate over a fire, have swimming pools for them to burn off extra energy in the afternoon and guides who know how to keep kids engaged when out in a vehicle. We'll advise you on which camps are suitable for younger children based on safety elements, activities and room layouts, and where it might be more appropriate for teenagers and we'll guide you on driving options where you have your own car and guide so can dictate how long your safari days are vs the benefits of a fly in safari where you might have other people on your game drive with you.

Game drives are always a highlight as you watch your children's faces light up as they see a lion lounging in the shade or an elephant playfully squirting water, but Kenya has many activities which take a family safari beyond game drives. Take a camel safari across the plains of Laikipia, watch swathes of pink flamingos on the rift valley lakes, spend time with Masai warriors and take part in their 'bush schools' or perhaps even share your breakfast with a giraffe,

Many of our clients choose to combine their safari with a few days of relaxation on the beach afterwards, heading either to the Kenyan coast or taking a short hop across the waters to Zanzibar. There is plenty to entertain children from playing in the sand to snorkelling and kite surfing. Whether you are looking to stay in a beachside hotel or to have your own villa, we can tailor it to your needs.
