Description

An ideal family safari and beach trip, combining two of our favorite family-friendly accommodations in Kenya. Fly straight into the heart of the Masai Mara, one of Africa's finest wildlife destinations, and stay at a private safari house with your own safari guide. Enjoy a safari here, seeking out big cats, large herds of elephants, hippos wallowing in the rivers and the iconic grassy savannah plains made famous in Out of Africa.

Acacia House is one of three Mara bush homes, designed to be a home away from home, offering you total flexibility on your safari and plenty of space to relax together as a family. Two of the houses share a swimming pool, giving children somewhere to let off steam and parents a place to relax between game drives.

Spend your days here enjoying morning and afternoon game-drives, guided bush walks (not suitable for young children), and visits to the nearby village and school where your children might play a game of football with the local kids. Each day will be different and planned by you alongside your guide, so if some of you want to stay behind and relax for an afternoon, or you don't want quite such an early start one morning, it's your call!

You then fly directly to Diani, on the southern Kenya coast for some well-earned rest and relaxation at the beautiful Kinondo Kwetu, a collection of cottages and suites on an unspoiled beach. There are endless things to do here, including snorkeling, diving, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, horse-riding on the beach and tennis. And if you need a bit of pampering, indulge in massage treatments or unwind in the wood-fired sauna.
