Discover Kenya Family Activity Safari

Explore Kenya on foot, by bike, and by 4x4 on this adventurous safari taking in Mt Kenya, the Aberdares, Lewa Downs, and the Masai Mara

Discover Kenya Family Activity Safari

‘Discover Kenya’ is an adventurous alternative to a traditional driven safari, offering families a chance to escape the beaten path and explore on foot, by bike and by 4x4 the best that Kenya has to offer. Designed for holiday fun and not as a challenge, the 7-day itinerary is suitable for active families with children aged 10 and over, and can also be adapted to suit small groups and couples.

Outline Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Mount Kenya foothills

    You will be met on arrival in Nairobi and transferred to Mountain Rock Lodge, on the western slopes of Mt. Kenya, for one night.

  2. Day 2: Ngare Ndare Forest (35km)

    After an early breakfast at Mountain Rock Lodge, transfer by vehicle past the Equator line to Kisima (1 hour drive), the starting point for today’s ride.

  3. Day 3: Lewa Down Wildlife Conservancy to Nkubu (25km)

    This morning will see you cycle through forest and open savannah, as you continue along the Ngare Ndare forest trail before turning off onto an off-road trail that takes you through the Lewa Down Wildlife Conservancy. At the end of a gripping 25km ride, you emerge into the farms around Meru.

  4. Day 4: Aberdares National Park
