EXPLORERS FAMILY SAFARI

This safari allows families to discover and experience the wonders that Masai Mara has to offer. Witness the diverse and wildlife-rich natural landscapes of the Masai Mara Reserve and Mara Naboisho Conservancy renowned for their high density of wildlife as your children learn about the wonders of the bush in the comfort of the camp’s environment. There is always a watchful eye of an experienced Maasai guide available, to ensure the children are kept busy and safe, while the parents can relax and enjoy their stay.

Day 1

On arriving at Jomo Kenyatta International Kenya, a driver-guide will meet and transfer you to Wilson Airport for a short flight to Masai Mara. If you have a late-night flight or an early morning arrival, we can arrange for your accommodation in Nairobi to unwind and relax before your departure to Masai Mara at an extra cost (enquire upon booking). At the Masai Mara airstrip, one of our friendly Maasai guides will be waiting to take you on your very first game drive en-route to camp. Enjoy the exceptional wildlife in Masai Mara. Arrive at Basecamp Masai Mara in time for lunch. Whilst the parents are settling in the children can get acquainted with our Young Explorers Club where they will be informed about the fun activities on offer. For a start, the children will be engaged in animal puzzles and board games. Later as a family, head out for an afternoon game drive. As the sun sets, return to camp for dinner followed by story sharing around the fireplace.

After breakfast, the family will join their guide on a camp walk designed to introduce the young explorers to the camp’s surroundings.

End your day watching the sunset over Mara plains, with a Basecamp sundowner. After dinner, sit out with the children, look up into the star-studded sky.
