Kenya and Seychelles Family Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach family holiday to Seychelles and Kenya

The perfect combination of safari and beach, this family holiday includes a stay at 2 of Kenya's most renowned wildlife parks with a beach holiday in the Seychelles. The hassle-free, fly-in safari has you staying at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in the Laikipia region and the famous Maasai Mara, both of which offer outstanding opportunities for wildlife viewing with child-friendly safari guides. Lewa House and Cottar's 1920's Camp have been specifically chosen for offering family rooms, childcare if necessary, flexible meal times and exciting nature-based activities including a 'Maasai Warrior School'. This involves tracking footprints, learning dances and songs in Mara, and practising skills such as spear-throwing, bow-shooting and fire-making. There is also the possibility of doing some walks, coarse fishing for catfish and barbel and river swimming and rock-climbing and jumping.

An easy flight will then take you on to the island of Mahé in the Seychelles where you will stay at the 5-star Four Seasons Resort offering a superb kids club as well as excellent water sports & activities. Spend your days gazing out at the ocean from your infinity pool and truly unwinding in paradise.
