Kenya is one of the best places to head out on safari. If you have been searching for a unique family vacation, I recommend considering a safari in Kenya. You get to spend time in the great outdoors while making memories with your family. Add in the thrilling experiences that include seeing wildlife and the opportunity to see different areas of the region, and you will have an amazing vacation. Today, I am going to share what an itinerary can look like for a Kenya safari. You can easily choose to do something similar for your next family vacation. Or you can have me personalize an itinerary that matches your interests while on a Kenya safari.
The first day of your Kenya safari family vacation will have you arriving at the airport and being transported to your hotel in Nairobi. It is recommended that you relax and utilize the amenities at the hotel for the remainder of the day. Although, you can head out to explore the city on your own if you wish.
After a filling breakfast, you will be swept away into the heart of Nairobi for a city tour. This is an excellent way to see the major attractions in the city and learn about each one from your guide.
Next on your list of things to do will stop at animal sanctuaries. David Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage will have you learning about orphaned baby elephants. The staff will share how they care for the baby elephants, so they can be returned to the wild.
At the Giraffe Center, you will have the opportunity to meet endangered Rothschild giraffes. If you are lucky, you will be invited to go up to the feeding area to offer the giraffes’ food pellets. The giraffes will reward you with a kiss after taking the food.
It is finally time to head out on your Kenya safari adventure. Today will begin with a drive to Amboseli National Park. Once you are checked into your accommodations, you will all be taken out on a game drive. This is one of the best places to see the Big Five, as well as other wildlife.
If the weather is nice, make sure you capture some photos of Mount Kilimanjaro in the background.
Yes, you get an entire day to spend exploring Amboseli National Park during your Kenya safari. You will head out on a game drive almost before the sun comes up. This is an ideal time to see the animals because they are quite active. Don’t worry; you can enjoy a hearty breakfast together while reliving your memories of the morning when you return to your accommodations.
A little relaxation will be in order afterward, so you will be ready to head out on a game drive later in the day.

You will get some great views of Mount Kilimanjaro early in the morning before you leave to head over to Lake Naivasha. Your drive to the lake will take you through the breathtaking Great Rift Valley. After a stop at your hotel, you will head out to the lake for a boat cruise.
The boat will take you to Crescent Island Private Sanctuary. You can wander around the island as you see the native wildlife. Some of the wildlife you will see includes giraffes, zebras, impalas, hippos, and wildebeests.
Your entire day will be spent driving around Lake Nakuru National Park. There are thousands of animals living within the savannah, acacia woodland, and swamps. This is also where you will spot the infamous white rhino. Well, you will if you are lucky!
Early in the morning, you will head out to the Masai Mara National Reserve. You will stop at Narok town for a few refreshments before reaching your final destination. Later in the day, you will go on an evening game drive.
Prior to your evening game drive, you will have the option to either visit a Masai Village or take a hot air balloon safari.
Yes, you get one more full day at the Masai Mara National Reserve. This is excellent news because your family will want to see more of the wildlife before returning home. Your entire day will be spent out in the reserve. You will even eat lunch in a scenic spot. This will allow you to hear the animals howling nearby. Don’t worry; your guide will ensure your safety at all times.
Early in the morning, you will ride back to Nairobi for your departure back home. Your nine days in Kenya on safari will have gone by way too fast. But the memories you made with your family will last forever!
There are so many other options that can be included within an itinerary on a Kenya safari. If you have been dreaming of taking a family vacation and doing a Kenya safari, now is the time to make it happen. You won’t regret one moment of being out in the middle of nowhere, as your entire family leaves all their responsibilities behind.
