Luxury Kenya safari holidays
There are many ways to make a family safari luxurious, and it doesn’t have to mean blowing the budget. Kenya luxury safari resorts come in all shapes and sizes, and by planning the itinerary carefully, at the right time of year, it’s easy to create a five star African safari that will dazzle the whole family.
What is ‘luxury’?
The word ‘luxury’ is often over-used and its meaning not always agreed upon. For some, luxury can mean treasured time spent with family in a memorable location. For others, it can be travelling across continents to witness spectacular natural phenomena. Or, it can simply mean being spoiled in marvellous lodgings, whilst dining on the most sumptuous food.
Whatever your definition of luxury, we’re confident a Kenya family safari will exceed even the highest of expectations.
Focus on the detail to make luxury Kenya safari holidays extra special
Beyond the wildlife and the accommodation, it’s worth planning the finer details to really deliver on luxury Kenya safari holidays. Often, the best way to make a family safari extra special is to think beyond the obvious.
If you’re travelling with children, ensuring you have a private safari vehicle is the perfect way to make everyone feel relaxed. You’ll deliver the flexibility that can be so important on a family safari holiday.
If you’re not bound by school holidays, find out what times of year offer the best value, whilst still delivering a phenomenal experience. Avoiding the crowds and having the wilderness to yourselves is a taste of real luxury.
Look for unique experiences not found elsewhere. What can be more luxurious than experiencing something unique? Walk with rhinos in Kenya’s remote north, soar high above the savannah in a vintage biplane, or take a safari on the back of a camel. Kenya has so many wonderfully special adventures to deliver a 5 star African safari holiday.
Choose the right lap of luxury for you
When it comes to planning a luxury Kenya safari holiday, the most common questions we’re asked are often about the accommodation:
- Will it be suitable for the children?
- What are the sleeping arrangements?
- How are the bathrooms?
- How hot/cold will it get?
- Will a lion come into my tent/room at night? (spoiler: thankfully, no, it won’t.)
