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 venue is one of the best I have visited. The hosts soon became like friends to us all. The hospitality was probably the best I have encountered! The trips into the forest and bear hide were made very interesting and exciting. Actually being able to watch these fine creatures in their environment was thrilling! I cannot praise the quality of this trip higher ... it is at the top as far as I am concerned. The food was better than I would expect at a top restaurant. Thank you for a great life experience!
Really loved the nights in the hide. Really lived up to expectation since we saw many Bears and mothers with cubs.
Brilliant trip that will stay with me for a long while. Will definitely look to book another in the future.
The whole trip was amazing from start to finish. The itinerary and trips ran like clockwork and was very well organised. The information from our guide was excellent and he was entertaining too. Our whole group was made to feel very welcome and the lodgings were homely and comfortable. Food was excellent too.
We all said we didn't just spot the bears but watched them interact which was such a bonus.
