What activities are possible on a Kenya family safari?

 
Forget thoughts of bumping around in crowded minibuses! An Africa Exclusive safari takes you into the wilds to enjoy the real Africa in many different ways. On private conservancies you are set free to walk, ride horseback, quad-bike, even sleep beneath the stars. Drift silently in a balloon at dawn above plains filled with wildlife. The key to unlocking these worlds of adventure is your guide. Hybrids of Bear Grylls and David Attenborough, they will keep you safe, keep you fascinated and show you Africa as you dreamed it could be.

There’s a saying that if a drive is like watching the film, a walk takes you behind the scenes. Your guide walks ahead, rifle in hand, then gathers you around a column of Matabele ants, marching to raid a termite mound. You watch fascinated as the ants invade and your guide takes you into the enchanting world of mini beasts. Later you’ll look at elephant tracks, discover how plants are used as cures and maybe creep up on a journey of giraffe. Your children will buzz with excitement.

Riding enthusiasts will never forget the joy of cantering alongside giraffe, maybe against the backdrop of Kilimanjaro. On horseback you are not seen as a threat, so it’s possible to approach close to zebra, rhinoceros and plains game. While we encourage you to be active, it’s undeniable that a vehicle is the best way to encounter the most animals. On the private conservancies we use, the 4x4 safari jeeps are open and permitted to go off track. We usually arrange for a family to have their own private vehicle and guide to give you greatest freedom.

The exclusive camps and lodges where you will stay are in remote and beautiful landscapes. But you can go a step further and sleep out in the wilds. We can arrange a night in “Starbeds” — raised wooden platforms with beds, a bathroom and views across the rolling savannah. You arrive on foot late afternoon and after a delicious meal share stories with your guides beneath a sky studded with countless stars. Drift off to sleep to the sounds of the wild as the heavens slowly turn. Wake and a glimmer of dawn heralds the start of another adventure-filled day.

Quad Biking, mountain biking, swimming in a river, flying in a biplane, fishing, walking with camels. There are so many ways to discover the epic scenery and wildlife of Kenya. Each activity reveals the landscape and wildlife from a different perspective. One of our favourites is to set off on foot with a group of Maasai and their camels. You travel through timeless landscapes to the rhythmic plod of the camels, discovering a slower way of life so different from our own. And if you finish your trip at the coast, you can enjoy diving, sailing and watersports around the reefs and islands of the Indian Ocean.
