FAMILY BEACH HOLIDAY IN KENYA

Are You Planning A Kenya Family Beach Trip? Scroll Down For Details..

Between school, work, extracurricular activities and the lure of today’s technology, you may not have the maximal time to spend with your children. Family gatherings, though, are the heart and soul of your connection to each other. Even when you plan a vacation that centers around your children, the almost relentless schedule of travel and sightseeing seems to pull you further away from each other. At AfricanMecca Safaris, family life is central to our many diverse cultures, so we revel in the opportunity to give all of our guest families the time and space they need to reunite their interests in a stress-free manner.

There simply is no other affordable Indian Ocean destination that brings a family closer than the seasides of Kenya, and your AfricanMecca trip planner is the inside connection you need for a bonding family beach holiday in Africa! From snorkeling and diving amongst pristine coral reefs of Kisite Marine Park and Mombasa Marine Park to a fun-filled game of beach volleyball in Watamu at Turtle Bay Beach Club, the seashores of Kenya offer an array of activities for children of all ages. We ensure your complete satisfaction by choosing only the most child-friendly accommodations to suit any budget. We also take into careful consideration the availability of activities designed to meet the high energy and growing minds of youngsters like sailing, kitesurfing and fishing in the deep seas of Malindi and Mombasa. Additionally, some accommodations offer kid-only activities and programs.

We have provided some general guidance about some of the other considerations for a seaside family vacation in Kenya.

Family Health Concerns For Beach Travel In Kenya

One of the most significant concerns for parents who are considering an exciting African safari and beach holiday escapade in Kenya is the health and well-being of their children as well as themselves. We advise parents that there is always a risk, but taking certain precautions reduces the risk significantly. First, you and your family should visit your primary physician for a general health check and guidance on recommended vaccinations for Kenya. Please bring your immunization records with you to have them handy during your bush and beach tour of Kenya.

Also, you should be in good health prior to your AfricanMecca trip to ensure that your travel is free of illness and other medical issues. Beach accommodations offer protection against mosquitos and other insects by sanitizing its grounds and also having mosquito nets over your beds. Lastly, you should also carry insect repellent with you, and your physician can advise you about malaria prophylaxis and other preventive measures while in-country. You must also have travel insurance for your entire family for unforeseen circumstances like high in-country medical costs and evacuation.

Budget Choice For Family Beach Trips To Kenya

Family travel in Kenya can be tailored to your budget to ensure utmost value in seeking the best experiences for your money. AfricanMecca Safaris travels to numerous accommodations in Kenya on a regular basis to determine if the balance between quality and cost is acceptable for our guests. Our recommended household lodgings vary in size, from large beachside resorts to charming, small, intimate settings with individual guest cottages on remote islands. We also carefully evaluate the availability of larger suites and cottages that are designed to meet the specific needs of families who need extra space for their action-adventure beach tour in Kenya. Some of the family-specific accommodations have multiple or inter-connecting bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, sitting areas, kitchens and even private staff especially in private beachfront homes in Lamu and Kilifi. We can also provide information on “all inclusive” options for your convenience so you are not paying out for each snack, meal or drink for your children and yourselves. Babysitting, children’s menus and kid-friendly activities are also considered when we recommend accommodations to you and your family based on your preference.

Child-Friendly Beach Considerations For Kenya

While children are allowed in most seaside hotels and resorts in Kenya, we believe that younger guests benefit most from activities, food and accommodations that specifically cater to the needs of families. For example, some AfricanMecca recommended family accommodations offer Kids Clubs like Voyager Beach Resort in North Coast Mombasa or at Baobab Beach Resort in South Coast Mombasa with hands-on activities designed for younger spirits. Children are welcome to join parents on shore walks, tennis, archery, table tennis, billiards, role-plays, sand castle build-up, sailing, kayaking and other pastimes, but these customized activities for youngsters offer entertainment, learning and engagement much more than accompanying parents. In fact, many parents truly enjoy seeing the excitement in their children’s faces each day as a new experience unfolds. The familiarity helps ease the mind of parents, leaving them to relax and enjoy their own activities.

Family Beach Holiday Timings For Kenya

School schedules often dictate the timing of a beachfront trip to Kenya. Like you, though, parents around the world also plan their travel to Africa during the same breaks. Christmas, New Years and Easter are especially popular with family from Europe, and the months of your child’s summer break coincide with the best time to view wildlife. As a result, flights and accommodations may be difficult to find when planning late, so we advise our guests to plan well ahead of their travel time – at least 8 to 10 months. Even if you do plan a coastal holiday to Kenya during the busiest times, we can help you find an accommodation that has as many or as few other guests as you desire, from intimate seaside lodgings to larger resorts.

The wildlife, landscape, beaches, towns, peoples, historical treasures and much more of East Africa enchants and taps into your children’s growing and enlightening minds. As preventive health measures have improved to protect adults and children alike, traveling to the beaches and bush of Kenya intrigues and delights families around the world. Your child dreams of being amidst wildlife, strolling along seashores to discover odd marine treasures from the sea and plunge into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean to splash. With AfricanMecca Safaris, you give your child an unforgettable trip of a lifetime and memories of precious family time spent growing and bonding together.
