Can Nairobi, the bustling, crowded capital city of Kenya, really be a kid-friendly destination? Certainly! While many travelers quickly pass through on their way to safaris, families in the know book a few nights of their Africa vacation in Nairobi. It’s perhaps best known as the location of the Giraffe Manor Hotel — children never forget the way the giraffes poke their heads through the windows of this charming and intimate estate. Other kid-friendly experiences in Nairobi include a visit to the Maasai Market, picnics in one of the many protected parks around the city, and visits to several of the animal sanctuaries.

–Tomeny Family Trip

"We have only good things to say about our entire trip and the planning process. You are a dream to work with! I especially appreciated how you narrowed down my options for each decision, so I wouldn't be overwhelmed. I haven't worked with a travel agent before, but you really surpassed my expectations. We will call you first the next time we travel!"

–Caldeira Family Trip

"The hotel you found and booked for us could be the nicest hotel we have ever stayed... and we have stayed at some really, really nice 5 star hotels."

–Wadsworth Family Trip

“I have been blown away with the services you provide. I first contacted Barbara last summer on a recommendation to Ciao Bambino from a friend. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had not used this type of service before. We were beyond impressed with everything Barbara set up for our family.”

–Detter Family Trip
