Family fun in a full circle

05 February 2015

KENYA, THE SAFARI COLLECTION: Safari is quite the family affair in Kenya. Families have explored their natural heritage for generations and the Carr-Hartleys, 4th generation Kenyans, are no exception. No question then that their four lodges are the epitome of a family friendly safari!

WHY FAMILY FRIENDLY
  • TAILORED: The Carr-Hartley kids have had their say in designing the family rooms and kiddie activities!! 
  • ACCOMMODATING: All 4 lodges have family suites with a separate kiddies bedroom.
  • SAFARIS: Relaxed, flexible family safaris designed around the children's ages and interests.
  • FOOD: Imaginative chefs that have special menus able to please even the pickiest of palates.
  • GUIDING: Guides are skillful teachers, feeding children's hunger for knowledge.
  • LOCATIONS: Ideally located lodges - Giraffe Manor is in a 140 acre forest in the leafy suburb of Langata, Nairobi; Solio Lodge in a private game reserve; Sasaab in the culturally rich Samburuland; and Sala's Camp located "off the beaten track" in the southern part of the Maasai Mara.
  • ACCESS: Kenya is ideal for families to charter flights at affordable prices between the lodges using their own private airstrips at Solio Lodge and Sasaab. Sala’s uses Keekorok in the Maasai Mara.
FAMILY HIGHLIGHTS AT EACH PROPERTY
  • GIRAFFE MANOR: Sticking your fingers in a giraffe's mouth has no equal! 
  • SOLIO LODGE: Lot's to do and see on the shorter game drives! Easy game viewing atop (yes, on the roof!) the game vehicles. To get rid of energy, families can go horse riding or cycling, and of course there's Murray-Anne, the resident bush baby!
  • SASAAB: Kids love learning about the tips and tricks of the bush from their expert Samburu teachers, ticking off the Samburu Special 5 as they spot them. Don't forget about fly-camping for the more adventurous!
  • SALA'S CAMP: Whether it's volleyball on the Sand River, learning from the Maasai or watching the incredible wildlife in the Mara, there's a highlight for all!
   
Happy Selling!

Kiri Camp

Kiri is located on the western side of a 100,000-acre private concession (also home to Machaba’s Gomoti Plains), 20 kilometres southwest of Chiefs Island. The 10 tents are right on the Kiri River under a canopy of Jackalberry trees. A seasonal inundation of water every year creates vast floodplains of shallow water around the camp, perfect for tranquil mokoro rides. When it recedes, the islands left behind are ideal for walking safaris and game drives amongst the iconic wildlife of the Okavango Delta...
