Several of Kenya’s best lodges are extremely family-friendly and offer fantastic game viewing, a wide range of activities and special family accommodation where you won’t disturb the honeymooning couples or scare all the wildlife away.

A family safari 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 Kenya family safari holiday is easily combinable with a 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.
