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 whole experience was better than anticipated - due in no small measure to the professionalism, dedication, knowledge and experience of our guides. The mammals, the scenery and countryside, particularly the riverside growth and the koppies were all that I wanted from South Africa. I shall go again!
Thank you so much for the most fantastic holiday. Our hosts were incredible - working very hard to make our stay most enjoyable. Eva's cooking was outstanding and I don't think you could get better food in the UK. They way they live their lives had an impact on all of us. It was thrilling to see the bear and Sweden is a beautiful country. I can't wait to go back.
Eleven bears the first night and thirteen the second! The only problem was when to go to sleep! We saw close views of Ural and Great Grey Owls, Red Squirrels on the bird table, and Musk Rat at the lake, and 80+ birds. A great way to spend five days.
