Family adventures

When was the last time you took a real adventure? A heart-thumping, eye-widening escapade that left you astounded and inspired (with a mile-wide smile to match)? If you thought that having a family meant hanging up your boots, think again. Whatever your dream, we'll tell you everything you need to know about family-friendly places and properties that welcome youngsters with open arms. Whether you want to see your child's face light up when they encounter their first elephant in Sri Lanka or make like Indiana Jones on a visit to Tutankhamen's tomb, we're brimming with ideas guaranteed to inspire you.

What does family adventure mean to you? A riding safari in Kenya? Spotting kangaroo in the Outback? Whatever it may be, we always find that children rise to the challenge. Let's face it, getting dirty is their modus operandi so they won't bat an eyelid at a little dust on a mobile safari! Great appreciators of the little things that grown ups often miss, children soak up new cultures and environments, and the passions of those they meet along the way.

Safety first It's natural to have some questions before striking out for the first time with your young explorers. That's why we take time to listen to what you want, share your various child-friendly options and reassure you that all of our experiences are completely appropriate for your family. Whether you're following in Darwin's footsteps in the Galapagos Islands or taking samurai lessons in Japan, we want you venture forth to far-flung places confident in the knowledge that your family is safe and sound.

Here are a few of our favorite ideas to whet your appetite. When you're ready, our family adventure experts will customize something totally unique just for you.
