Taking the Wildlings on Safari

An Africa Born mobile camp is the ideal wilderness adventure for kids. Pitched in some of our favourite national parks and conservancies, these magical camps are always a hit with young wildlings.

Our mobile camp team loves to entertain visiting totos. We all have families of our own so we know the ropes when it comes to entertaining kids. In Kenyan culture it really does take a village to raise a child, with extended families, neighbours and friends all playing a role in raising little ones. Family is everything in Kenya so we love to chip in and help give your kids the time of their lives.

Every day in the bush sparks an adventure. Here’s a few ideas for the young (and young at heart):

  • Maasai Olympics: perfect for game-loving families, better still for those that are fiercely competitive! Spear throwing, running, hurling rungus (Maasai wooden clubs) at nice juicy watermelons 
  • Football or volleyball with the camp crew
  • Poo dunnit: the ultimate (stinky) way to track wildlife by their poo
  • Hunting for the little five: head out on foot to spot leopard tortoise, rhino beetle, elephant shrew, antlion and buffalo weaver
  • Foraging for medicinal plants and herbs: having grown up in the bush, our guides and spotters know all the best finds from the toothbrush tree to natural deodorant! 
  • Visiting Ngararambuni Primary School in Amboseli: such a great experience for visiting kids and a brilliant way to see first hand some of the community projects close to our heart
  • Cooking with Tones and her team in the bush kitchen - build your own delicious  pizza!
  • Building campfires, toasting marshmallows and telling tales late into the night
  • Splashing around in the Sand River (during a stay at our mobile Camp) free from hippos and crocs, the Sand River is a giant sandpit with a delightful trickle of water - the perfect spot to cool off during the heat of the day. 
  • Night drives: head into the bush after dark in search of rare nocturnal creature

And if this doesn’t quite cut it, quad biking, hot air ballooning, heli expeditions,  fishing, camel trekking, horse riding and fly camping can all be weaved into your stay during an Africa Born Safari. From tots to teenagers, we’ve got it covered.
