I will be taking my first trip to Kenya in July 2014 with my two children aged 8 and 9, we are having 5 nights at the Papillon reef hotel on Diani Beach, followed by a 3 night safari and then a further 5 nights at the Turtle bay beach resort in Watamu. We are really very excited! My question though is what essentials do we need to take with us? Never having been on safari before, what do we really need to take?
Also, if anyone has been to any of these places can you recommend/advise on trips to do/not do. We want to have some fun, some relaxation, and some culture...my 7 year old son in particular is very very keen on the cultural side!
Thank you in advance :)
