Children are more than welcome, and we often have young visitors! A safari is an excellent experience for all generations; we have had many groups of multiple generations travelling together, with great success for all participants. However, we do recommend Basecamp Maasai Mara as the most family friendly camp.
At Basecamp Explorer, we are dedicated to providing the ultimate safari experience to both adults and children. However, due to our broad product diversity, there are certain considerations to take into account when considering family safari holidays. We have therefore carefully developed some guidelines that will help families make the most of their safari in Kenya since we have something for everyone regardless of age.
Children of all ages are welcome to stay with us at Basecamp Masai Mara, Leopard Hill and Wilderness Camp.
At Eagle View due to the camp’s wild and rustic nature, the recommended age for children staying is 7 years (underage children can be accommodated on special request). All children staying at Eagle View Camp must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
The recommended age for walking safaris is 12 years, this age also applies to accommodations at Dorobo Mobile Camp.
The Maasai people are very fond of children and they are happy to cater for the youngsters if the parents want a safari on their own, but arrangements to get a Child Minder should be requested prior to arrival date. We also have a Young Explorers Club for young travelers.
