If you’ve got a team of tiny explorers, look no further than Kenya. With generations of experience raising their own bush babies, these Kenyans certainly know how to create an unbeatable family adventure. Meet the animals up close at Nairobi’s Giraffe Manor, then head out to the bush for game drives, camel rides and visits to the Laikipia Maasai. At the end of your trip, hide away on a deserted beach on Kenya’s remote coastline.

NAIROBI - 1 night

After flying into Nairobi, meet your driver and head to Giraffe Manor. Visit the nearby elephant orphanage and return in time for tea on the lawn. Look out for the friendly warthogs, and make sure to ask for Jock’s or Betty’s rooms- you might see a friendly giraffe or two peeping through the curtains in the morning!

INDIAN OCEAN COAST - 5 nights

Robinson Crusoesque beach lodges are a Kenyan specialit and Kinondo Kwetu is perfect for kids. Leave the bush and take a light aircraft flight to the coast for a few days of tumbling in the Indian Ocean waves. Teach your tiddlers how to fish, or learn to kite surf. Run races along the beach, and count hundreds of fish under the water.

At the end of your stay, fly back to Nairobi. If you can, take time for dinner at the Carnivore, where crocodile meat is served on a sword, and diners wave a white flag when they’re finally defeated. Then, head on to the airport for your flight home.
