Family Safaris

We took the photos home in our cameras, but we took the people home in our hearts.”

Lynne Leakey, a Silver Badge Naturalist Guide with the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (KPSGA) is accustomed to hearing sentiments like these from visitors during the 30 years she has been escorting safaris throughout Africa.

“I do a lot of multi-generational tours,” Leakey says. “Just to see grandparents having time with their children and grandchildren without distractions, those things that keep families from interacting like IPods and cell phones, is very rewarding.

“I see families on these safaris when everything is put aside and time is given to evolve with each other and with the amazing animals as a background and just enjoy the fun of a safari.”
