Rainier – Safari Enthusiast & Kid Expert

Kili and Rainier in South Africa

Kili and Rainier in South Africa

Rainie was born here in the San Francisco Bay Area and, like her mom, she’s named for a dramatic and beautiful volcano too! Mount Rainier, in the Pacific Northwest, has a huge presence in family lore as her grandfather ran its guide service for a decade and summited 84 times!

Rainie, also in keeping with family tradition, went on her first safari when she was just a year old. Among her favorite toys are hand-carved Kenyan animals and she’s keen to check out the best destinations for families!

Here are our favorite kid-friendly safaris whether you are traveling with a toddler or a teen:

  • South Africa offers a great array of malaria-free, kid-friendly attractions that suits a multi-generation trip perfectly
  • Botswana‘s  Okavango Delta has several camps that tailor to children age 6+
  • Kenya’s Masai Mara and Walking Safaris on private land in the northern district
