Family Holidays

All of us with children know that it’s not always easy to give our kids all the attention we would like to. Life gets in the way doesn’t it? A family holiday can give us the time we need to re-engage in a positive way, and to enjoy each other’s company. It also gives us a chance to get the kids away from the X-Box or computer games; encourage them to see the big wide world in real life; and allow them to try new or possibly life-changing experiences.

Family holidays planned by people with children

Amanda and Guy Marks are the founders of Tribes, but more importantly parents of two boys. They have travelled with their boys from a young age, so are very aware of the kind of things that a family needs to consider when travelling with children of different ages. They and all the Tribes consultants are very happy to share their knowledge and experience of family travel.

Tailor Made Family Holidays

As with most of our services, the family holidays that we organise are tailor made. Working closely with you, we really can come up with a fantastic trip that the whole family will enjoy ”“ whatever the ages and whatever the interests. Our itinerary suggestions would generally be classed as a luxury family holiday, though we feel that they are good value for money.

Family Safaris

Family safari holidays get you and the family out into the wilds of Africa for a real adventure, and, of course, to see some magnificent wildlife.

Tribes directors Amanda & Guy know how much children love going on safari if they are at all interested in wild animals - and which children aren't?  Getting them (and you) out into the middle of the African bush, with no 'virtual' distractions (!), is a fabulous way to spend time on holiday as a family.

If you have a young family you will probably want a shorter and more gentle experience than if you have older children or teenagers. Not a problem, we can tailor the right experience to what is right for your tribe. This might even mean sticking to places where there is no malaria. Yes, this cuts down your choices somewhat, but there are still some exciting places to go.

There are some itinerary ideas below, but as always, talk to us if you would like us to plan something specifically for you.

Family Adventure Holidays

The right kind of family holiday enables you to discover another country, experience a different culture, or enjoy a new experience. There are so many possibilities out there, though of course it depends on the age of your children as to what family adventure we’d probably recommend. 

By all means talk to Amanda & Guy about their various travels with their boys, from wildlife and beach holidays in South Africa, to adventures in Nepal, and wildlife holidays in Brazil.  If it is useful to you to have someone to talk to who understands what it is like travelling to such places with young children, we are happy to advise.

Family Beach Holidays

Sometimes you just need time on the beach to relax and let the kids play. However it is also nice to know that there are other options close by if you decide to be a bit more active, or if you want to show the children something of a different culture and environment. So if you want to go a bit further afield than Europe to get your bucket and spade out or to enjoy relaxation and water sports, let us help you find a family beach holiday that will tick all your boxes.

Below are a few ideas of holidays you may want to consider for your family, but the very best thing you can do is call and chat to us about what might be your perfect trip.
