Wildlife/Nature

It's often said we don't truly appreciate something until we lose it. As the fragility of our natural world becomes more evident, we find ourselves increasingly drawn to places where we can reconnect with the earth, no longer just spectators, but a part of the planet. With little control over the experience, contact with untamed wildlife is a gift, a blessing, and a humbling reminder of how removed from nature our lives have become.

Thailand Family Adventure (ATFF)

Asia Thailand

Why do some families go all the way to Thailand just to lie on the beach? We don’t know either. Our family adventure mixes a whole lot of bona fide Thai experiences – everything from a longboat tour of Bangkok, a meeting with a hill tribe community, a cooking class in Chiang Mai and a somber visit to the infamous bridge over the River Kwai – with a little bit of sand and surf, too. Hey, even the Buddha reclined and relaxed once in a while, right?

Highlights: Get caught up in the bustle of Bangkok, take in the scenery at ancient Ayutthaya, wander through colourful Chiang Mai, relax on the beach in Koh Chang.

Tanzania Family Adventure (DTFA)

Africa Tanzania

Taking the kids to the zoo will occupy them for a day. Taking them to Africa itself will stick with them for the rest of their lives. There’s a whole lot of amazingness crammed into this ten-day adventure through Tanzania – game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park, personal encounters with villagers in remote communities, plate upon plate of flavourful deliciousness on Zanzibar, and plenty more – but don’t worry; you’ll get to do it all (and then some).

Highlights: Spot the Big Five in the Serengeti, chill on the beach in Zanzibar, meet locals in the village of Mto wa Mbu, watch the sun set in the Ngorongoro Crater

Costa Rica Family Experience (CRFA)

Central America Costa Rica

Nothing brings learning to life like real-world experience. This week-long trip’s engaging lesson plan gives your kids an education in biology and ecology they’ll never get in a textbook.

Elsewhere, you’ll get in touch with the land by rappelling, rafting, swimming, horseback-riding, and even surfing all over it. Science + gym? You do the math.

Highlights: Kick back on Costa Rica's pristine beaches, visit a local family to learn to make tortillas, spot nature in dense cloud forest, enjoy the natural beauty of Manuel Antonio National Park, splash around kayaking and paddle-boarding in La Fortuna.
