Create family memories that will last a lifetime

Watch the children's excitement as they see animals in the wild for the first time

Kenya has two main attractions that are ideal for building a once-in-a-lifetime family holiday. Firstly, the many safari lodges across the various national reserves such as Samburu, Masai Mara and Tsavo offer spectacular wildlife viewing as well as the chance to immerse yourself in ancient cultures. Secondly, the Kenyan coastline features white sand beaches and warm, Indian Ocean waters that make for an idyllic family beach holiday.

The safari lodges and camps are generally more suited to older children and many come with an age restriction against under 12’s. This is because some of the camps have potential risks to very young children such as no fencing, proximity to rivers, steep steps or high walkways. Very early starts, late finishes and long days in a very bumpy vehicle can be a challenge for young children. Older children will not think twice, inevitably distracted by all the exciting wildlife and scenery that’s on offer

The coastal resorts, particularly in Mombasa, do provide some very family-friendly destinations. While the parents relax with a massage, the kids can be kept fully entertained by games and activities provided by the hotel and their qualified staff. You can split your time between relaxing by the pool and going out to sea for snorkelling and scuba diving sessions. Dining at both the safari lodges and beach resorts often involves buffet food which caters to a variety of taste buds, keeping everyone fed and happy!

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
