East Africa Family Travel Itinerary

Take your family on their greatest wildlife adventure – an Asilia family safari in the vast wilderness of the Maasai Mara and then to the white sands of tropical Zanzibar Island. 

Spend time at the Mara Bush Houses, all fully catered and with private game-viewing vehicles so you can come and go as you please. Expert guides Fred, Saalash and Dickson are all family men themselves and have an infinite knowledge of the plains. Let them teach your children the magic of the African bush with our specially adapted Asilia Kids programme and fascinate them with bushwise facts, traditional games, local folklore and stories of life in the wild. On Zanzibar Island, stay at Matemwe Beach House and discover the marine life of the Indian Ocean. With snorkelling, kayaking and boating excursions only a stone’s throw away, even the most energetic of children will be kept entertained.
