Many private reserves are a pioneering co-operation between local tribes and wildlife conservation. Your family will have opportunities to see this in action and to meet the Samburu and Maasai people in their local communities.
Your children will be spellbound at the sight of elephants, leopard and rhinoceros roaming the plains and valleys of Kenya. We can book you a private open vehicle with your own guide who will get to know the interests of each member of the family. Drives are the best way to see the most animals but we can also arrange wonderful activities specially designed for children. At Saruni Samburu, Samburu warriors in traditional dress will teach them bush craft skills, taking them tracking antelope and giraffe. They will introduce them to ancient tribal “wisdom” and bush survival skills and they will visit a Maasai village meeting local children.
On safari your guide is your protector, interpreter and friend. Africa Exclusive goes to great lengths to only book camps and lodges with outstandingly good guides. The best guides seem to be endowed with “bionic” eyesight! He can be driving your vehicle and notice a chameleon sitting on a twig in a bush, or a leopard lounging on a branch of a sausage tree. He will get you into position for that perfect photograph and use every ounce of experience to track down that elusive cheetah or family of wild dog. For a family safari we will usually arrange for you to have your own private guide so you can have his undivided attention and be completely flexible in your choice of activities.
