    A family safari in the heart of the Masai Mara is an experience with activities for the entire family, memories made together that will last a lifetime, and opportunities to learn and grow together. Our family safari itineraries are tailor-made to suit each family for the duration of their stay, taking into consideration the age of the children and any special interests or requests.

Since its establishment over 5 years ago, it has become a haven for various wildlife species.
