Jamhuri Day 2016 is just 40 days away. Plan a 3 days’ family holiday to explore the wonders of this beautiful country. Treat your children to an unforgettable safari so they can see most of the species they have read about or watched on television all this while. Let them find out whether Kenya has Angry Birds or the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean are excellent for Finding Dory.

Planning Tips for a Great Jamhuri Day Family Getaway

  • Find a hotel offering a variety of indoor and outdoor activities children love. Ask whether you can get board games, whether there is a kids pool on-site, etc. Game drives are awesome but children may get bored while you are exploring the plains, and probably fall asleep.

  • Find a family friendly hotel. This means the rooms have extra bed space if necessary, there is a child menu in the restaurant, and you can ask for a babysitter. Some hotels in Kenya with babysitting services are Serena Beach Resort and Spa, Reef Hotel Mombasa, Amber Hotel in Nairobi and Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort & Spa.
  • Find an all-inclusive package. Get a Jamhuri Day package that is inclusive of transport from Nairobi and full board accommodation. You can spend the Jamhuri Day weekend on the shores of Lake Naivasha, in Maasai Mara or in another enchanting destination.

Best Destinations for a Jamhuri Day Getaway

The coast of Kenya has so many places to explore with your family. It is perhaps one of the top destinations for families. Towns to consider for your trip include Diani Beach, Nyali, Watamu and Malindi. These towns have historical sites as well as a variety of watersports that your children will love.

If the coast is too far for you, visit Naivasha. Stay in a resort or camp on the shores of the lake so you can be within each of the many activities this region has for families, such as boat riding.

On the other hand, you can stay in Nairobi, and enjoy a city break in any the out of town hotels. Find a hotel near attractions or a hotel within on-site activities. Hotels in Karen are close to child-friendly attractions like the Giraffe Centre and Nairobi Safari Walk.
