Family Egypt and Kenya Vacation

Inspirational family vacation to Egypt & Kenya

A truly enriching family vacation, both educational and adventurous. Make history come alive as the family explores Egypt’s ancient treasures in Cairo and the Nile Valley, and then encounter Africa’s incredible wildlife on a Kenyan safari, right out of the storybooks.

Your time in Egypt combines time in the capital Cairo and Luxor, on the Nile Valley. Both the Marriott Mena House Hotel and the Hilton Luxor are family-friendly and allow easy access to the sites, to keep the kids’ interest. With swimming pools in both, the kids are bound to jump straight in following a busy day sightseeing. Take a selfie with the kids in front of the Sphinx and the pyramids and find mummies at the Egyptian Museum. At Luxor play hide and seek amongst epic temples, tombs, and monuments, from Karnak Temple and the Avenue of the Sphinxes to the Valley of the Kings. Fly then to Kenya and embark on child-friendly safari at Hemingways Ol Seki in the world-renowned Maasai Mara Reserve, home to lions, elephants, zebras, cheetahs, and other incredible wildlife. Aside from thrilling game drives, the camp offers fun and educational children’s activities including bush survival classes, guided walks, lessons on how to identify animals through their footprints, as well as learning about the Maasai and their culture.
