Are you planning a Kenya family safari ? Kenya is undeniably one of the most exciting places for a family vacation. Trust, most families prefer a Kenyan safari experience at least once a year. Some of the best settings for a family trip in Kenya range from 5-star hotels, national parks, beach resorts, cultural visits, road trips, museums and so much more.
Now, here is a quick guideline on how to have the moment of your life, the Kenyan way.
First and foremost, plan early. Yes, ensure that everything is in control before your travel dates. A family trip should not necessarily be a disaster waiting to happen. Take time to plan your trip. Set aside enough money that will see you through the trip. You also need to plan on how you will deal with medical emergencies in case they arise.
You also have to remember that traveling with kids means that you will have to pack a number of suitcases. Though it tends to be overwhelming but you will have to take your time and be keen not to leave anything important unpacked. Bring with you a first aid kit and emergency medication even if you think you don’t need them.
Secondly, you have to bring your wild-side with you. Be ready for an electrifying experience discovering the Kenyan wildlife. Several options await you so relax and choose from depending on your preferences. For example, to view the big five, you have to visit the renowned Maasai Mara National park.
Most people and especially children find wildlife sighting very intriguing. So believe you me, your kids will be forever grateful for the opportunity. To ensure that they keep the memories, encourage them to take as many photos as possible.
Thirdly, make your trip a bit interactive. Check with your family members and know what they want to do during the stay. Constantly keep in mind the fact that you’re visiting as a family and not as an individual. Watamu marine park, Giraffe centre, David Sheldrick elephant orphanage, Bomas of Kenya and the Nairobi animal orphanage are just but a few of the places that kids adore the most. If your children want to visit any of these places, see to it that they do.
You can also find out which destinations are family-friendly. You can do so by asking colleagues or friends who have already been there.You can directly contact the persons concerned through available websites as well.
Last but not least, ensure that you have a great time by visiting the most famous, most recommended and the most fun-filled destinations in Kenya. The country has so much to offer in terms of vacations, tours and travels. If you are not sure of where to go, ask from friends who have been to Kenya.
