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
Both leaders were excellent ‘spotters’ of wildlife and Dave Steyn was particularly popular with his story telling of life in Africa with our grandchildren. Alan organised our comings and goings with great care. We also liked his sensitivity to the environment. We would be very happy to travel with either of them again and recommend them for a family group.
Vegetarian food was excellent, with care taken to put veggie sandwiches in the hide both nights.
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!
