1-Safari

It may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see endangered species like rhinoceros in the wild. A really eye-opening and educational experience as well as a whole lot of fun. Pack clothes that will camouflage you in the forest and desert surroundings and don’t forget the sun cream. Some of the best destinations are listed below:

  • Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve
  • Botswana’s Okavango Delta
  • South Africa’s Kruger National Park

2-Winter Breaks

Introducing your kids to the snow slopes at an early age gets them up and active and learning a skill that they can build on. Kids are often taught to ski from as young as age 5, so if you’re kids are this age, they can easily get involved in your skiing trip. Save baggage space by shopping around for ski gear by hiring it out at the resort. Some of the best rated ski resorts for families:

  • Ylläs, Finland
    The arctic landscape is great for those new to skiing, and a great place to see huskies, reindeer and go sledging.
  • Cervinia, Italy
    A small, sunny resort, the nursery slopes are great for first-timers.
  • Alpe d’Huez, France
    With lots of green runs and more intermediate level for those feeling confident.
