Discover the wonderful animals and people of Kenya on this family safari holiday.
Swap the hubbub of Kenya's capital for the calls of flamingos, zebras and rhinos as you journey from Nairobi to Masai Mara. The impressive Great Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha make an unforgettable backdrop as you camp out under the stars. Trek across the plains in search of Africa's largest residents, including lions, cheetahs and elephants. Spend time with the Masaai people and experience their fascinating tribal culture. Witness conservation projects that help protect animals from harm and extinction.
Venture into the incredible Masai Mara National Reserve for a full-day game drive
Make friends with warriors of the Maasai tribe around the camp fire; they'll be on guard for lions while you camp overnight
Get a taste of Nairobi, an exciting, cosmopolitan city of sterling restaurants, cafes and museums
Keep your eyes peeled for black and white rhinos on an adventure through Lake Nakuru National Park
Encounter colourful birds and herds of zebra on a walk around Crater Lake
You'll be in excellent hands for the duration of your trip, travelling with a crew of three experienced locals – a leader, driver and cook
This is a participatory camping trip and everyone will embrace the team spirit by helping with camp setup, food preparation and cleaning. You will be putting up and taking down your tent as you move from place to place.
In Loita Hills (Day 5) you will stay in a bush camp with no shower facilities. The rewards of experiencing the Maasai culture, however, should more than make up for the lack of creature comforts.
Our purpose-built overland vehicles allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. They have no air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot at times.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land! Some days have driving times of 5-6 hours.

The Kenyan Family Tour was incredible, it was everything we hoped it would be & more. Travelling with children can sometimes be tricky but this adventure was perfect for all of us & meeting similar families to experience Kenya with, was fantastic. The Staff were local so made you feel comfortable straight away & we knew we were in good hands. Our Chef was wonderful & to his credit we all remained in good health through his high standards. The wildlife was clearly a highlight & gave us memories to treasure together forever. Experiencing local cultures gave us an opportunity to show our children how others live & having them interact with other families on tour has been invaluable. Thanks Intrepid, we can't wait to do another holiday with you soon.

This trip was a great introduction for the Family to Kenya. The trip was full of adventure, animals and new experiences with a good balance of culture and wildlife. Our girls were shattered by the end of it but described it as the "best holiday ever".
