Top Kenya safaris with DumaSafaris? Africa is a fabulous place if you are searching for raw nature feeling. Some lodges don’t allow children under six on game drives, others have a “no children under 12” policy. But there are plenty of family-friendly safari operators, many lodges have swimming pools and babysitting services, and going on safari as a family is one of the most rewarding experiences for children and their parents, an educational adventure that can instil in travellers of all ages a deeper respect for the natural world and our place in it. There’s a reason it’s called “wildlife”. The animals you’ll see on safari, even in reserves and national parks, are wild and many of them are dangerous predators. That said, safari operators take every precaution to keep you safe by giving you a few rules for game drives (such as: don’t stand up in the vehicle) and providing guards who patrol camps and lodges and can even escort you back to your room after dark in case of an unexpected close encounter with a leopard or baboon. Self-drive safaris occasionally make the news, but are safe if you obey a few simple but essential guidelines such as: keep the windows up and the doors locked, never leave your vehicle and don’t harass the animals.
Kenya – part of the Black Continent, is perhaps the last piece of land in that true, unknown, wild Africa, with lost traditions in the dark of time. There are also animal savannahs, nomadic tribes with simple and happy people. Kenya lies in the eastern part of the continent, just 140 km from the Equator, with 536 km of coast open directly to the Indian Ocean. The capital of Kenya – Nairobi – is located on a mountain plateau at about 1700 m altitude, so the temperature is relatively constant throughout the year, without disturbance of excessive heat, unbearable.

It is best to visit Kenya during June-September or January-February, during their dry seasons. How to get to Kenya: Kenya has two international airports, served by many major airlines (such as KLM, Air France, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines etc.) – Mombassa (on the coast) and Nairobi (the capital). Mombassa is a better option, as there are numerous charter flights from Western Europe. As expected, we do not have direct flights, but there are many variants from Milan, Rome, Istanbul and London (and until then you get a low cost flight).
