Why take a family wildlife holiday?
Experience – following the ethos ‘education by experience’, we have used decades of adventure travel knowledge to select innovative destinations to stimulate ALL ages (minimum age varies, starting from 5 years).
Itineraries – designed to avoid unnecessary lengthy travelling. Itineraries include as much as possible but try to spend at least two nights in each location to allow you to get the most out of the countries at a relaxed pace.
Accommodation – chosen for authenticity as well as location. From en suite thatched stilted huts on the beach to open bush camping where the experience far outweighs the basic facilities.
Tour Leaders – carefully selected to engage and stimulate young people (rather than act as babysitters!), only using local leaders because they have in-depth local knowledge about wildlife and culture.

Our family safari holidays take place in East and Southern Africa. They offer a great mix of African adventure, magnificent wildlife, unique accommodation, fascinating and fun cultural exchanges plus either the tropical spice island of Zanzibar or the coastal resort of Swakopmund to round off a perfect family adventure holiday to Africa.
With its dense rainforests, tropical beaches and mysterious jungle valleys, Borneo is the perfect place to spot exotic wildlife. On our family adventure holiday here we visit the famous Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre at Sepilok, which teaches survival skills to orphaned apes so they can be re-introduced into the wild. We also cruise down the Kinabatangan River in search of proboscis monkeys, macaques, hornbills, otters and elephants, to name just a few! .
India and Sri Lanka
Our well paced adventure holidays here are full of contrasts; historic cities, wonderful mountain retreats and an abundance of wildlife! In India we marvel at the unequalled beauty of the Taj Mahal in Agra, immerse ourselves in the bustling and colourful cities of Rajasthan and explore Ranthambore national park, going on a jeep safari in search of wild elephant and the elusive Bengal tiger.
Sri Lanka has something for everyone and never fails to enchant visitors. There are ruined cities and rock-top forts to explore, strangely colourful birds, encounters with elephants and other wildlife and some of the world’s best beaches. Visits to Minneriya and Uda Walawe national parks offer a real safari experience; kids will love the thrill of coming across a herd of wild elephants; it’s nothing like a zoo or safari park! .
Costa Rica offers an extraordinary variety of landscape, climate and ecosystems . National parks protect over twenty five per cent of the country – more than in any other in the world. Take excursions by boat and on foot and see the forest from the height of the canopy as you walk across hanging bridges suspended through the trees. Fall asleep to the unearthly cry of the howler monkey and wake in the morning to the screech of toucan!
