And if you are looking for ultimate family holiday to see in the Festive Season, one that will offer up extraordinary adventures off the beaten track, and a chance to enjoy the great outdoors and connect with nature, Kenya’s award-winning tented safari camp, Sanctuary Olonana, may be just the ticket.
Situated on a private stretch of the Mara River in the heart of Kenya’s most famous game reserve, the Masai Mara, this small and exclusive camp is only a short 45 minute flight from Nairobi and offers a broad spectrum of activities including game drives, cultural visits, bush dinners, sun-downers, balloon flights and scenic flights, making it a wonderful and unforgettable African safari for guests of every age.
Plus there’s a broad range of dedicated children’s activities on offer. The Camp’s friendly and expert guides will take kids out on special game drives and accompany them to the nearby Masai village where they can learn how to make and shoot a traditional bow and arrow, make a fire, build a hut and herd cattle. They can also mingle with local children over a game of football and learn Masai songs and traditional dances. Other activities sure to keep them engaged include nature walks where they’ll learn to identify animal footprints, bush treasure hunts and even planting their own tree.
And of course, staff at Sanctuary Olonana have had years of experience making guests feel at home. So expect them to treat you and your family, well…like family from the moment you step into Camp, whether that means treating you to a Christmas dinner your grandmother would be proud of, or leaving thoughtful gifts for you in the morning.
Special family tented rooms feature two double beds – making it perfect for those with younger children. And for parents wanting a bit of ‘me time’ baby-sitting facilities are available and the Camp also offers a delicious range of children-friendly menus.
