Take your family on the greatest adventure imaginable: an Asilia Family Safari in the vast and unspoiled wilderness of East Africa. With a highly skilled, family-oriented guide at your side, you will discover untamed Africa the way few others ever do.
Families are warmly welcomed at all of our camps and lodges. However, due to location and available facilities, some may be more suited to families than others. We have a few camps that are the most suited to families – These camps offer excellent family safaris. Personal attention, guiding, accommodation and service are focused on creating a superb safari experience for adults and children alike.
