Vacation type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re traveling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Traveling our way is a bit like traveling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Responsible tourism

Kenya and Tanzania family safari, small group

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Whilst wildlife viewing is a big part of many of our itineraries, we strive only to view animals in their natural habitats and do so with the greatest level of consideration. This trip offers travelers the chance to do exactly that – from roaming the mighty Serengeti to venturing into the Ngorongoro Crater.
Water is a really precious commodity in this part of the world. Our trained tour leaders are well versed in advising travelers on initiatives laid out to help manage water consumption and actively encourage them to treat this scarce resource with the utmost respect.

Unfortunately, on the vast majority of this itinerary, using public transport is not reliable or feasible and so we use private, locally-owned transport instead. However, we do ensure that our vehicles are well-maintained, fuel efficient and appropriately sized for the passenger numbers we have traveling with us.

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a ‘take in, take back out’ waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.

Community

This trip is run by our own East African operator who shares our commitment to responsible travel, from waste and water management to ensuring we leave as minimal a footprint as possible. Crucially, our local team are all trained in our global responsible travel policies and practises.

We encourage our suppliers to adopt more sustainable practises too and often select suppliers who already have green practises in place. We also shop in local markets and eat in local restaurants to support the local economy. All aspects of this trip on the ground are operated by Eastern Africans, most of whom live locally, including all our tour leaders, vehicle drivers, local sight guides and accommodation providers.

This family trip has a maximum group size of 16 to minimise our impact on the places we visit. Over tourism is an issue we are very conscious of and we are taking measures to ensure that we don’t disrupt the communities we visit or their surrounding environments.

Our company strives to create employment opportunities in the countries we travel to and our staff is made up of many different people from all over the world. We offer local people good working conditions, a fair wage, and empower them through training opportunities. We also work to maximise the benefits generated by tourism for local economies and communities. We source local activities that we believe are sustainable to the economy in that they allow the flow of income from visitors to be distributed to a greater audience, instead of remaining concentrated with a handful of tourism providers.
