Kenya Bush and Beach Family Safari Itinerary (12 days)
Start your Kenyan family safari in Nairobi; the vibrant, exciting place and Africa’s fourth largest city. You and your family/friends will explore Nairobi's cafe culture, unbridled nightlife, National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum.
Visit the beautiful Lake Naivasha that is fringed by papyrus and acacia trees as well as supports a vast array of bird species such as pink flamingos.
The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park. Witness large prides of lion, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles as well as eland. However, aside from traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential and you can even do a horseback safari.
Enjoy the beaches of Mombasa; characterised by long stretches of white side, palm trees swaying in the breeze, coral reefs which break the power of the waves and provide a haven for snorkelling and scuba diving and beyond the deep blue sea teeming with game fish.
Costing tip: When comparing with other companies, remember most of them only show the low season rate. How pricing works >
