Detailed Itinerary: 9 Days Kenya Family Safari
Day 1 – 2: Culture in Nairobi | 1 Night
When you arrive at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the family adventure starts. A private 6-seater 4×4 car will bring you to the House of Waine, which is located in Nairobi’s lush Karen area after you are personally welcomed. After a long travel, this 11-bedroom boutique hotel’s cozy suites and peaceful garden are ideal for recharging.
You can take high tea on the lawns in the afternoon and possibly go swimming in the heated pool. You can stop by neighboring sites like the Giraffe Centre, the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary, or the Karen Blixen Museum if you have some extra time and energy before your departure the next day for the Masai Mara.
Day 2 – 5: Family Safari in the Masai Mara | 3 Nights
For your scheduled flight to the Masai Mara, you will ride in a private 4×4 car to the airport. When you land in this well-known African setting, a guide from Mara Bush House, your special safari lodging for the next three nights, will be there to welcome you.
You and your family will experience a sense of exclusivity at Mara Bush House. Your personal chef and safari guide will work with you to determine your tastes and interests, and you can enjoy safari activities and meals on your own timetable. Children can learn about spoor, animal tracking, beetles, bugs, and birds from knowledgeable guides, and when they’re not enjoying the African bush, you can find your little ones having fun in the kitchen baking and cooking.
The home features three roomy bedrooms that are connected by a sizable veranda and have their own bathrooms. Enjoy family time and home-cooked meals in the relaxing living and dining space, or go outside for enjoyable picnics and star-studded feasts.
Day 5 – 9: Explore Kenya’s undiscovered north | 4 Nights
You will fly from the Masai Mara to Nanyuki Airstrip in Kenya’s Laikipia district, and then take transport to the 40 000-acre private Ol Lentille conservation area, located in the Ol Olokwe Mountain foothills. In this unspoiled and breathtaking wilderness, you will spend four nights at Chief’s House, which provides stunning mountain vistas and a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. You will get a private cook, safari guide, and exclusive use of a 4×4 vehicle, just like in the Masai Mara, so you can take your time and enjoy the experience.
The day after you arrive, you’ll fly in a picturesque helicopter to Mount Kenya for a trout-fishing adventure. This thrilling excursion puts a unique twist on the typical safari; in addition to being exposed to breathtaking views, you can interact with your family while fishing.
The main lodge features a sizable pool with a view, a library, a viewing deck, and a health spa in addition to your very own private safari house. A variety of activities are available, including quad biking, camel and horseback safaris, walking, bird watching, and more.
On your last day of 9 Days Kenya Family Safari, a flight will take you from Wilson Airport in Nairobi back to Nanyuki Airstrip. For a few hours prior to your flight, you will have access to a private 4×4 vehicle with a driver, allowing you to see some final sights or finish up some last-minute shopping in Kenya’s capital.
