7 DAYS KIDS FRIENDLY FAMILY HOLIDAY KENYA

7 DAYS KIDS FRIENDLY FAMILY HOLIDAY KENYA

family safari

The 7 days kids friendly family holiday Kenya is a perfect opportunity to introduce children to nature and wildlife. Children tend to get bored on a regular safari hence the need to create an itinerary that takes care of their needs. This safari is a fun filled adventure tailor made for everybody in the family and intended to make everyone happy and interactive while enjoying every bit of the safari. It combines game drives with activities that will keep children entertained like close encounter with wildlife, swimming, bicycle riding and horse riding. The accommodation facilities are children friendly.

The safari starts in Nairobi where the family will visit the Nairobi animal orphanage. The Orphanage hosts  a variety of animals which include lions, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, serval cats, rare Sokoke cats, warthogs, leopards, various monkeys, baboons and buffalo. Various species of birds can also be viewed including parrots, guinea fowls, crowned cranes and ostriches. From Nairobi animal orphanage, the tour will proceed to David Sheldrick elephant orphanage. This is an orphanage for elephant calves orphaned by poachers. They are brought here from all over Kenya and taken care of until they are old enough to be re introduced back to the wild in Tsavo National Park. At the orphanage, you will watch the calves being bottle fed on their milk formula, and after having their fill, they will play and splash in mud bath like toddlers. You will also visit the giraffe center for close encounter with the Rothschild giraffes.  Giraffe center was set up as a breeding center for the endangered Rothschild giraffe, a subspecies of the giraffe. The conservation center now operates conservation/education programs for children.

From Nairobi the tour heads to Hells gate National park in Naivasha. At the park, a variety of wildlife can be found within the park such as lions, leopards and cheetahs which are seen quite minimally. Other animals more regularly seen include the hyraxes, hyenas, thompson’s gazelle, zebras, eland, hartebeest and the African buffalo.  It is home to the rare lammergeyer vultures that are only found within this ark. Besides the vultures, there are over 103 bird species that provide a bird watcher with an array of species to choose from. For instance the augur buzzard, swifts and verreaux’s eagles. In hells gate, you will engage in bike riding which is can be a delight to the children. There is also the lake Naivasha where you will have an option of boat rides while watching wildlife.

You will also be taken to lake Nakuru national park which has over 400 bird species making it a bird watchers paradise. In addition it is home to over 50 mammal species. When it comes to plant species, it has over 500. The park is famous for the flocks of the greater and lesser Flamingo that gather around the lake numbering around 2 million, which turns the lake pink. This has given the lake a nickname; the pink lake.  Other avifauna to be seen include variety of water birds (Yellow-billed Pelicans, Marabou Storks, Hammerkops, Fish Eagles, etc.)

The climax of the family holiday safari will be the Masai Mara. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant like in the Masai Mara National Reserve.
