Our selection of wildlife holidays for those travelling with children offer great deals during school holidays.

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.


Sweden's Bears

The hosts were exemplary. Perfectionists both, every attention to detail, to comfort, and care were lavished on us. We were welcomed as friends. Eva's cuisine was exquisite in every way. We have never had better food anywhere, and I'm 73! Everything was home-cooked including several types of bread, and every plate was cleared ... what more could you want? The hide in the forest was not the shed we expected, but a large well-designed building including comfortable beds and an en suite washroom. The weather was ideal. A great holiday. Four days was not long enough! And we had great views of a bear!

South Africa - Kruger

Warren and Martin made South Africa come alive for us... The knowledge and skill that they both exhibited was amazing, their efforts to provide the maximum opportunity to see everything possible at the time were unceasing and totally successful.
Vegetarian food was excellent, with care taken to put veggie sandwiches in the hide both nights.
