Stefano and Liz Cheli, Owners of Cheli & Peacock comment:“We have always had multigenerational groups on safari – although family safaris are definitely on the increase. 20 years ago we had couples ‘escaping’ for a romantic holiday; nowadays - with our more frenetic lifestyles - we have a great many families that consider a safari to be a perfect way to spend some time together. Kenya is great for kids – Kenyans are warm and welcoming, especially when it comes to young families.”
