Family travel: Adventures for young and old!
When you think about your childhood, what are the things that stand out in your mind? Was it the cool video games you played, or the incredible family holiday that you all went on? Take that family holiday to the next level with one of our adventure-packed eco-getaways!
Instead of visiting your local zoo to check out the Big 5, pack your bags and take your family off to Namibia to help with elephant conservation. This unique family holiday will see you all working together for 9 nights in the Namib Desert on projects such as building elephant-proof walls around farming land, and tracking these gentle giants throughout the area to monitor their numbers and the success of current conservation projects.
On their break from their classroom at home, your kids will have the opportunity to become teachers! Through this project, your family will engage with local kids at the primary school to help promote tolerance towards elephants and improve environmental consciousness in the next generation.

If your kids have seen Finding Nemo, or even The Little Mermaid, then they are probably asking you a million questions about life under the sea. Instead of just telling them about turtles, whales and fish, give them the opportunity to get into the water and snorkel with these fascinating animals.
In this jam-packed family adventure, your family will swim with turtles, sunbath on Mexican beaches, and visit ancient Mayan sites! As a family you will challenge yourselves to become brace adventurous, encouraging your little ones to be brave and curious in the world around them. They might even be brave enough to try some spicy Mexican food while they are there!
