A dramatic morning flight from Nairobi skirts the glaciers of Mount Kenya and then plunges to land on Kenya's near desert Northern Frontier. The great Ewaso Nyiro River cuts through the desert in Samburu National Park, and the surrounding veld blooms, attracting large amounts of game. You and your children will be happy to spot Giraffe, Elephant, Lion or smaller antelopes and the Grevy's Zebra. Enjoy beautiful bird life. After so much excitement, sit down with your loved-ones and have a delicious meal at your family accommodation.
Leave the lowland veldt and drive up Mount Kenya, past colourful traditional villages. Arrive at your accommodation for lunch and go on an afternoon safari, including a visit to the Jane Goodell chimp sanctuary. This evening you can book an optional night safari.
Leave the highlands for a beautiful morning drive that crosses the Equatorial Line and arrives Lake Nakuru National Park for a mid-day game drive. The park is famous for its tens of thousands of Flamingos, Rhino and Rothschild Giraffe. In the afternoon, you travel to another gorgeous Rift Valley Lake in Kenya, Lake Naivasha. Here, you can relax and enjoy dinner with your family and overnight.
The drive into Kenya's best park, the Maasai Mara, is truly spectacular. Arrive with your family at your Masaai Mara accommodation for lunch. Then start 2 days of intense game viewing. The Mara has all the big game in abundance, including the Black-Maned Lion, Cheetah and Leopard, and plains full of Gazelle and antelope. There will be time to see a Maasai village and even book an optional game walk. Enjoy this Masaai Mara family safari to the fullest.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
