Taking the family on holiday to Africa is easier than you think. With family and multi-generational travel options increasing in popularity there are many options for families of any age to choose from. We recommend a safari in Kenya’s famous Masai Mara National Reserve combined with the island beach paradise of the Seychelles to bask in the sunshine along pristine beaches.
The Masai Mara is a nature lovers paradise and firm favourite of safari goers. Driving out into the great wide open wilderness to be rewarded with sightings of lion, wildebeest, elephant and other wildlife gives family a great opportunity to experience the rush and excitement of experiencing the same things for the first time. That giddy feeling of not knowing what waits around the next bend or silently observing all the strange and wonderful creatures. The local Masai Manyatta’s (villages) are also a highlight and give a fantastic insight into how different our lifestyles can be. Children and adults will be equally delighted by the open natural wilderness and being able to see open skies from horizon to horizon or by the dazzling starlit night sky. Play games identifying night time animal sounds or ticking off wildlife on your spotters list – there are many interactive ways to keep the whole family entertained. At camp the staff looks after your every need giving you well deserved relaxation time amidst breathtaking scenery.
Travelling from the wilds of Kenya a flight takes you across the warm Indian Ocean to the tropical Seychelles where the ocean and palm fringed beaches await. With a family villa to spread out in, your family’s every need is cared for while visiting the island. With a kids club taking care of activities for the youngsters, adults have plenty of time to explore the island and its adventures. Take a sailing boat out into the turquoise waters, cycle to the villages or dive the colourful reefs, there are watersports of every kind for the marine adventurer. Take a timeout at the luxurious spa with treatments that will make any tension simply melt away. Kids are entertained with treasure hunts, beach games, local crafts, culinary projects and trips of island exploration – guaranteed to keep even the most sprightly of children active and mentally stimulated. A variety of meal delights await with seafood enthusiasts more than adequately catered for. Whether choosing the buffet or ala carte options – there is taste sensation for every palate.
