KWS02 – Family Safari

This is a 9 day safari including the day you arrive and the day you return home.

For years, children have been accompanying their parents to Africa to witness the world’s greatest creatures, marvel at it wildest landscapes, and partake of its oldest cultures – only to return home knowing very little about what they have actually seen.

Here is the ultimate children’s holiday, thanks to the uniquely educational and inspirational Kenya Adventure’s Club. Accompanied by highly trained naturalists and cultural specialists, children will be treated to an enlightening series of walks, talks, visits to neighbouring schools and villages, games and activities designed to help them better understand their wild surroundings.

For example a typical day out in the Mara with a Masai naturalist might include a visit to a “manyatta” village to watch a dance and help the local boys separating young and old sheep. Learn to shoot a bow and arrow, make fire with sticks, make jewellery, play animal hide-and-seek, learn tracking and identify animals, birds, insects and butterflies. All educational materials – from checklists and activity books to local arts and crafts – are provided without charge. All adventurers will have a chance to craft their own plaster cast of a local animal track – giving them a unique souvenir that takes absolutely nothing away!

The following itinerary combines game viewing and extra curricular activities geared towards young people. It is very participatory and will give the children a real African experience. It will be their holiday of a lifetime.
