A family safari in the heart of the Masai Mara is an experience with activities for the entire family.  With plenty of opportunities to learn and grow together, memories made together last a lifetime. Our family safari itineraries are tailor-made to suit each family for the duration of their stay, taking into consideration the age of the children and any special interests or requests.

Day 1

You will be met on arrival at Olkiombo Airstrip in Masai Mara, by our skilled Maasai guide for a transfer to your camp with a short game drive en route. The park is famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest migration and is home to the big five among other wildlife. Arrive at Basecamp Masai Mara for lunch. After lunch, relax in your tent followed by an afternoon game drive to explore the Masai Mara National Reserve. Return to camp before sundown, for dinner and overnight stay.

Later, head back to camp where breakfast awaits you. The rest of the morning is at leisure. Your children can engage in other camp activities like having an interactive session with our guides who will teach them bush survival skills. Your afternoon game drive includes a stop for sundowners which is something your children will always remember.
