Kenya Family Safari and Beach Trip

Inspirational safari & beach family holiday to Kenya

A dream family vacation, this trip takes your family from the vast savannah plains of Kenya's Maasai Mara to a remote beach on the Kenyan coast. The adventure of a lifetime, see Africa's most famous wildlife on thrilling game drives and from a hot air balloon and then kick back and relax together on a white sand beach. Get a bird's eye view of Kenya's sweeping landscapes as you fly by light aircraft into the Maasai Mara Reserve, staying at Sand River Maasai Mara Camp. The area is best known for its large concentrations of big cats, such as leopard, cheetah and, of course, lion. Even the dramatic arrival of the Annual Wildebeest Migration (July - October) merely adds to an already abundant resident wildlife that awaits discovery.

Stay together in a family tent and share exciting game drives and bush meals. From here to the beach. Kinondo Kwetu is an all-inclusive luxury boutique hotel set among baobabs and palm trees. It's on the near-private Galu beach overlooking the Indian Ocean. When you aren't just chilling, there's an abundance of activities for the family to enjoy together, from snorkeling, kayaking, sailing and tennis to kite surfing, horse-riding and excursions.
