Family WIldlife Holidays
Our programme of family wildlife tours is aimed at those of you wishing to travel with a child (or children). Enjoying the world’s top wildlife spectacles with your children is a perfect way to spend a half term or holiday and we offer tours focusing on a range of wildlife from Tigers to Brown Bears, often with a little culture thrown in.
Our family wildlife tour specialist recommends …
We offer a good choice of short-haul holidays for families such as Bear watching and whale and dolphin trips. However, if you fancy something further afield, I’d recommend our ‘Nepal – Kathmandu & the Wildlife of Koshi Tappu & Chitwan National Park’ tour. The combination of culture, wildlife and adventure is a perfect one – the rafting, rhinos and elephant-back safaris are amongst the highlights! - David Mills
Naturetrek family wildlife tours
It can be hard for families to find a good holiday deal during school holidays. For this reason Naturetrek has put together a special selection of wildlife tours for people travelling with children at these times. Many of these offer significant discounts for children. These holidays offer the added opportunity of being able to travel with other like-minded families with similar wildlife interests.
Here’s a selection of our family wildlife tours:
- South Africa – a big game safari in Kruger National Park
- Visit the Taj Mahal & look for Tigers in northern India
- Kerala offers a heady mix of spices & elephants in southern India
We also operate family-oriented short breaks. Here are a few:
- Watch Brown Bears in Sweden from a purpose-built cabin
- Evening cruises & day trips to look for dolphins & seabirds off the Dorset coast
- Enjoy Madeira’s special whales & dolphins
- The Isle of Man combines excellent marine life with a friendly family atmosphere
Can I take children on other Naturetrek tours?
Yes. As well as offering special family holidays, including those described above, any Naturetrek holiday can be operated for your family – or a group of families – on request.
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Family HOLIDAYS
The bears exceeded expectations, with sightings of 15 bears and cubs, and it was good that a second night in the hide was offered. Food and drink had also been provided for our overnight stay. Even though we were only in Finland for a short time, the holiday really did introduce you to the vastness of Finland's forests, and the small population. The staff at the centre were so helpful, all in all a most remarkable and enjoyable trip. As well as the bears, the Siberian Jay was a delight to see, and I hadn't expected to see so many Red Squirrels! I would highly recommend this trip, such a privilege to see the bears in their habitat.
The trip leaders and local agents were totally fantastic. Im already booking for next years Naturetrek holiday!
It was a wonderful experience and a privilege to be so close to the bears. The guide called Jarno who took us on the bird watching trip was excellent he was passionate enthusiastic and knowledgeable. A really great tour. Thank you.
