Exploring the world as a family
As the world has become more accessible this has meant remote places that were once unlikely to welcome families as their clients are now at the top of the list. There is a whole new world out there for families to explore and right here we hope to open your eyes to some of the great new family opportunities…
It’s an oldie but a goodie. We used to not be huge fans of Kenya as we felt it was too mainstream for us. Over the last 4 or 5 years however we have to say we have been convinced otherwise; if you know where to go then you can avoid the crowds, enjoy some spectacular wildlife sightings and access some of the most pristine wilderness areas left on the African continent.
The key to Kenya is accessing some of the private concessions and conservancies. These regions only permit a limited number of properties to be built and have strict regulations on number of vehicles allowed on wildlife sightings at any one time. This automatically increases the quality of your family adventure and ensures you are not sitting in a queue waiting for your glimpse of a lion in long grass. With only a few lodges in each private conservancy, you are guaranteed a quality experience and with these conservancies now bedded in more than ever, the resident game often beats that in the Masai Mara itself.
2. Galapagos Islands
Where better to get up close and personal to wildlife than the Galapagos Islands! With some of the most at ease wildlife on our planet, the Galapagos Islands offer that perfect educative experience for families with children. The boats in the Galapagos Islands all run on a set departure basis and with some of these being dedicated to purely family bookings, this is a great way to meet other families both for the parents and the children alike. If this is not your style, then we also cater to individual family requirements on private departures making for the perfect Galapagos adventure. Whilst the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands is the main draw, there are also plenty of other activities to keep everyone happy with snorkelling, diving and kayaking offering you alternative means to explore.
Great value for money, great fun and a huge amount to see! Borneo is an ideal family holiday destination with a variety of wildlife from swinging orang-utans, colourful birdlife, howling gibbons, lumbering elephants and lazy beaches. Aside from the wildlife we offer exclusive access to Miki’s Survival Camp where you spend the night as a family learning local survival techniques such as how to use a blowpipe, making bamboo chairs and camping out in the jungle! From jungle lodges to some of the best snorkelling and diving in the world, Borneo is a must for any family adventure.
