I loved going on family holidays when I was younger, and the special memories stay with you forever. Spotting animals on Safari, snorkelling or zip lining through the jungle will entertain even the adults.

Why we love Family holidays

The latest insight from our time spent exploring Family Destinations.

Unforgettable Holidays

True Luxury Travel’s specialists have a wealth of experience in organising holidays for families with children of all ages. Whether on one end of the scale you are looking for a truly epic family adventure covering multiple countries, or even continents, over an extended period of time, or perhaps eyeing up a beautiful European villa for a week’s Summer holiday, it’s important to receive informed and accurate advice.

Family Safari Ideas

As safari guides ourselves, helping to bring the bush to life for children is one of our favourite things. Witnessing something as spectacular as a mountain gorilla up close or walking through the Kalahari with the San Bushmen. These are just three of an unfathomable number of jaw-dropping experiences available in Africa. These types of experiences are central to our thought process when we begin planning your family holiday. It’s not just about the lodge and the location – it’s about the people who will be sharing with you their expertise based on a lifetime of knowledge.

Children on Safari

If you have never visited Africa and are thinking of a first visit with your family then you’ll have questions galore – is it safe, what’s the food like, are there family rooms, babysitting and child car, safari ‘kids clubs’? Ask away, we’ve answers to all the questions. It’s no surprise that somewhere like South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve has become synonymous with family safari. This malarial free reserve covers a whopping 750 km2, is home to a dazzling array of wildlife and is the setting for fantastic family focused lodges like Madikwe Safari Lodge.

Family Highlights

Ranthambore

Ranthambore

Ranthambore is a five hour drive from Agra and is the National Park which is perfectly placed to include in your itinerary, especially if tiger sightings are high on your bucket list. Ranthambore is exceptionally beautiful, with a historic fortress standing within the park. Tiger numbers have increased slowly since 1973 when it became a National Park, and some tigers are now being moved to other parks such as Sariska, in the hope these parks will once again breed a new tiger population. Just outside the park, Ranthambore is also home to some of India’s most luxurious safari lodges.

Queensland

Queensland

Queensland is an Australian state covering the continent’s northeast, with a coastline stretching nearly 7,000km.

Sossusvlei and NamibRand

Sossusvlei and NamibRand

Possibly the best known area of Namibia, famous for the enormous dunes of Sossusvlei, a great variety of activities and the wide open spaces and dramatic mountains of the NamibRand, possibly the country’s most beautiful area and with low volumes of tourists – even for Namibia.

Madikwe Game Reserve

Madikwe Game Reserve

Madikwe Game Reserve is an increasingly popular malaria free safari destination in South Africa. With it's huge variety of top class accommodation and large numbers of Big Five game, this Reserve has grown in popularity in the past five years with domestic and international travellers alike.

Laikipia and Samburu

Laikipia and Samburu

The high plains of Laikipia sit under a majestic snow-capped Mount Kenya, and are made up of a patchwork of private reserves with superb family run safari lodges. This is regarded as one of Kenya's best safari regions with plentiful game and few visitors, an example of sustainable tourism at its best, and the location of some truly beautiful lodges. True Luxury Travel’s specialists often find ourselves drawn back to this area and if you were to ask about our favourite areas in Africa, Laikipia would be close to the top. Heading further north takes you into the Samburu and the heat of the desert, a land of winding sand-rivers and doom palms, flanked by the majestic Matthews Range and the Samburu’s spiritual mountain Ololokwe. Stumble upon huge bull elephants and big breeding herds heading for water and be astounded in the volume of life in such an arid part of the world, this is an excellent area for wild dog and leopard sightings.

Mauritius

Mauritius

The busiest area of Mauritius, the North Coast still retains a strong sense of identity through the hidden gems that remain untouched by development in the area. Situated here is Grand Baie, which has evolved from a sleepy fishing village into a thriving destination with a small town feel. Boasting some of the island’s best nightlife and restaurants, you can feel the bustling energy running throughout. For a little less hustle and bustle look no further than the discreet Rivière du Rempart region, home to isolated coves, luxurious spas and only a handful of high end resorts. It’s fairly easy to see why it’s become an increasingly popular choice for honeymooners and couples. The North Coast possesses many understated gems awaiting visitors who are willing to explore. Heading inland are swathes of sugar-cane fields known as Pamplemousses sloping gently towards the sea. Particular highlights here are the fantastic Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens and the enduringly popular L’Aventure du Sucre – a museum dedicated to Mauritius’ traditional colonial export. In a nutshell the North Coast has a little bit of everything that one looks for during their stay.
