Kids under 12 stay free when sharing a room at Mara Serena Kenya

An amazing offer to introduce your children to the wonders of Kenya. Whether they’ve seen the African state through cartoons or TV documentaries they will have no greater experience than actually be there. Truly an experience of a lifetime!

For many, an African safari is high on their bucket list of “things-to-do- before- I-die” – and where better to experience the ultimate safari than in one the most famous wildlife parks of all – the Masai Mara in Kenya!

At a time when most holiday destinations are hiking up their prices for the school holidays, Serena Hotels and Lodges (repeatedly voted East Africa’s Most Respected Company) has taken the decision to make Kenya more accessible to and affordable for families – introducing a brand new special offer whereby two children under the age of 12 can stay free when sharing with their parents during the UK half term holidays in May and October 2014 .

This special “bush and beach” package twins the recently refurbished Mara Serena Safari Lodge , which boasts one of the best locations in the Mara, with Serena’s ever-popular Serena Beach Resort and Spa , idyllically located on Shanzu beach on Kenya’s Swahili coast. Families will enjoy an authentic taste of the local culture too as Mara Serena resembles a traditional Maasai Manyatta (cluster of domed huts encircled by a Boma of brushwood) whilst Serena Beach echoes a 13 th century Swahili town with its winding pathways and colourful markets. Both properties welcome children and Serena Beach particularly has a wide range of facilities and activities on offer to suit all ages. Youngsters are encouraged to learn about local culture and nature whilst they have fun, hopefully instilling a life-long love and appreciation for Africa.


For UK half term holidays in May and October , Serena Hotels and Lodges is offering 2 children under 12 stay free when sharing with their parents on a classic Mara safari and beach holiday. A one week safari and beach holiday for a family of 4 costs from £7,050 in May and October half terms, saving £1,340 per family, travelling with Rainbow Tours ( / 0207 666 1250) The price includes roundtrip flights from Heathrow to Nairobi and Mombasa, or from regional airports via Amsterdam, all prepaid taxes, road transfers, return flights in the Masai Mara, 3 nights at the newly refurbished Mara Serena Safari Lodge with all meals, twice daily game drives, National Park fees, airstrip transfers and a breakfast at the hippo pool, three nights on Shanzu beach at Serena Beach Resort and Spa with dinner and breakfast. Valid for 2 adults and 2 children under 12 years for half terms in May and October 2014.

Families can also visit in the AUGUST 2014 SCHOOL HOLIDAYS , taking advantage of the “2 children stay free when sharing” offer combining KILAGUNI SERENA SAFARI LODGE WITH SERENA BEACH RESORT and Spa instead of the Mara. Kilaguni was the first lodge ever built in a Kenyan National Park and is beautifully located at the foot of the famous Mount Kilimanjaro in Tsavo West National Park and offers big 5 game viewing in the “land of lions and lava”.
