Kent is off to Kenya this week, so while we await stories of his exciting adventures, a deeper look at one of our Kenya trips is in order.
On our Kenya Deluxe Family Safari, you can enjoy a first-class adventure with your family. You will visit two fantastic wilderness areas in Kenya; the world-renowned Masai Mara, as well as the lesser-known, more exclusive Lewa Conservancy. There are exceptional wildlife viewing opportunities on this trip, as well as cultural activities. Additionally, you can partake in walking and horseback adventures. The focus isn’t only on the activities, however. The accommodations and the food will keep you happy, too!
Your first stop after Nairobi will be in the Lewa Conservancy where you will be met by your private guide at the airport and taken to your lodge. Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya‘s oldest private safari experiences. The family home accommodates up to 18 guests in comfortable thatched cottages with ensuite bathrooms and verandas. The food is wholesome, ranch style and organically grown. For forty years guests have been visiting this remarkable region to be part of an adventure like no other.
Lewa sits in the shadow of Africa’s second highest mountain resulting in a perfect climate, with warm days and cool nights. The plains and valleys are full of unique and endangered animals, and the people at Lewa Wilderness are delighted to play a part in their survival. They have a unique partnership with local communities and there is a wide range of activities and adventures to discover in both comfort and style. When you aren’t enjoying game drives, horseback riding, walking safaris or a visit to the furniture workshop, you can spend time by the pool or playing tennis on the clay courts.
After your stay at Lewa, you will fly to the Masai Mara. Imagine your own house in the bush, right in the very heart of one of Africa’s most famous and game-rich areas…a bush home that is ideal for a couple, family or group, where the wildlife comes right to the waterhole outside of your front door and you decide how you would like to pass your day.
Acacia House fits the bill and offers flexibility, exclusivity and, even better – the freedom to personally design your own day-to-day safari itinerary in the Masai Mara while enjoying the seclusion of your very own private lodgings. Your unique adventure is complemented by the detailed personal service and unequalled wildlife expertise. Acacia House is fully catered and guided by some of the most talented guides in Africa.
This adventure will allow you to have a unique safari experience in Kenya, whether with your family, a small group or as a couple. We can customize this or any other itinerary to suit your needs. Call us if you’d like to plan your own family adventure!
