Things to do and Places to Visit while on a Family Safari in Kenya

Masai Mara

The Masai Mara National Reserve stands as a premier wildlife destination, nestled in the southwest of Kenya along the Tanzanian border. Central to its allure is the Mara River, coursing from north to south through the reserve, teeming with crocodiles and hippos. This river poses a daunting obstacle for the wildebeests and zebras during their Annual Migration.

Home to a diverse array of wildlife, the Masai Mara boasts inhabitants ranging from jackals, elephants, and buffaloes to impalas, gazelles, and hyenas. Among its most iconic residents are the big cats – lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Bird enthusiasts will also be enthralled by the variety of avian species that call this reserve home.

For families seeking an unforgettable safari experience, the Masai Mara offers a wealth of activities. From exhilarating game drives amidst the sweeping plains to witnessing the awe-inspiring spectacle of the Annual Wildebeest Migration, there’s no shortage of adventure. Guided bush walks led by armed ranger guides provide an up-close encounter with nature, while scenic hot air balloon safaris offer a unique perspective from above.

Immersing yourselves in the local Maasai culture adds another layer of richness to your journey. Visit Maasai homesteads to witness their way of life, interact with their children, and support the community by purchasing handmade crafts and beads.

For families planning a wildlife adventure, the Masai Mara should undoubtedly top the list. Here, amidst extraordinary natural beauty, children and adults alike are guaranteed to create lasting memories and experience the wonders of the wild.

Southern Lift Valley

As part of the Kenyan Great Rift Valley, this region encompasses vibrant cities and towns like Nairobi, Nakuru – home to the picturesque Lake Nakuru, a paradise for birdwatchers with its stunning flamingos, and Naivasha, boasting the serene Lake Naivasha and a plethora of exquisite resorts and hotels, making it an ideal family getaway destination.

Within this region lie renowned national parks such as Amboseli NP, Aberdare NP, and Lake Nakuru NP, offering rich wildlife experiences and breathtaking landscapes for families to explore.

Connecting to the southern Rift Valley is made convenient, especially for family safaris, due to shorter distances, diverse scenery, well-maintained roads, and child-friendly national parks. With Kenlink Tours, your family can embark on an unforgettable journey through this region, discovering its natural wonders and creating cherished memories together.

Lamu Island and Diani Beach

Exploring Kenya’s coastline offers countless opportunities for family enjoyment, but there’s something truly special about Lamu Island and the serene shores of Diani Beach.

Lamu Island, known as the “land of dhows,” offers a rich cultural experience. Sail along its tranquil waters to witness breathtaking sunsets or partake in thrilling water sports such as swimming and snorkeling alongside dolphins, creating unforgettable memories for your family.

Diani Beach stands as one of Africa’s premier destinations, and for good reason. Located approximately 30km south of Mombasa, its pristine white sands and turquoise waters are simply mesmerizing. With a variety of accommodations available, including hostels, honeymoon treehouses, beach resorts, and hotels, there’s something to suit every family’s preferences. Take in the refreshing sea breeze and bask in the beauty of Diani Beach, ensuring an idyllic retreat for your entire family.

Accommodations in Kenya

Family-friendly accommodation options abound in all the sought-after destinations across Kenya, whether it’s the Masai Mara, Mombasa, Amboseli National Park, or the beautiful beaches and islands. These accommodations cater to various preferences and include tented camps, luxury hotels, lodges, and private villas, among others.

While some upscale lodges, particularly those geared towards honeymooners or couples, may enforce strict policies regarding children, such as minimum age limits, there are plenty of other lodges that warmly welcome guests of all ages. These family-oriented accommodations offer a range of activities tailored to children, ensuring that your little ones are entertained and engaged throughout your stay.

Transport In Kenya


The most family-friendly mode of transportation in Kenya is undoubtedly safari vehicles, offering comfort and convenience, particularly for children. Unlike public transport commonly used in urban areas, safari vehicles provide a safer and more comfortable travel experience for families exploring the country’s diverse landscapes and wildlife.

For those planning to hire a car, it’s advisable to ensure the availability of child seat belts for added safety during the journey. In instances where attractions are situated far from each other, flying becomes a viable option for covering long distances efficiently. Opting for air travel to such destinations not only saves time but also minimizes the hassle of long drives, especially for families with young children. Whether navigating through bustling cities or embarking on adventurous safaris, prioritizing comfort and safety ensures a smooth and enjoyable travel experience for the whole family.

What To Pack On Kenya Safari

When traveling to Kenya with your family, it’s essential to pack wisely, considering that some items may not be readily available or could be pricey compared to what you’re accustomed to back home. Be sure to pack essentials for your child, such as canned baby foods, powdered milk, disposable nappies, and child-friendly insect repellents. If you’re hiring a vehicle, don’t forget to bring along a child seat belt and seat for added safety.

While you can find some items in local supermarkets, they may not be the same brands you’re used to, and prices might vary. Therefore, it’s best to come prepared with the essentials your child needs.

With Kenlink Tours as your trusted handler, you can rest assured that your family’s needs will be taken care of throughout your Kenyan adventure. Expect comfort, fresh air, abundant sunshine, and countless memorable experiences. Your children are bound to enjoy every moment of the safari, creating cherished memories they’ll eagerly share as they grow older. Kenya truly offers the perfect destination for an unforgettable family getaway.
