Family holidays in Kenya | Kenya Group Safari | Affordable Budget Family Tours

Africa has a lot to offer families, but it's important to visit places that actively welcome children, rather than simply accept them. Africa isn't ideal for babies or very small children, who should avoid areas with malaria. However for interested children, who are old enough to understand what they see, Africa can be an amazing and inspiring place. Private houses and villas can be ideal for families. In recent years, we've seen more families travelling together, and a rise in small groups of like-minded friends sharing a trip. Both work best when they have their own space and flexibility in their meals and activities. Often a private villa can be an ideal solution, and many of these come with their own private chef and even a private safari guide.

The 1989 movie "Born Free", a true-life story of George and Joy Adamson was shot in the Game Reserve and some of the scenes were shot at the lodge- making it a true African lion safari. An open-air restaurant over looking the river, swimming pool, curio shop, bars, and it's location at an oasis make it a perfect base from which to explore the Shaba Reserve, as well as its sister reserve - Buffalo Springs to the west. It is renowned for its unique assortment of other species of animals, such as Somali Ostrich, Reticulated Giraffe, Beisa Oryx, Grevy Zebra, Cheetah, and Lions.
