family adventure holidays

Family fun in Kenya

An adventure in Kenya and Tanzania doesn’t always make it to the top of the list when you think of perfect destinations for a family, but our family holiday this summer took us on the ultimate adventure to Kenya.  With so many to choose from, one of the most inspirational experiences of our trip was a visit to a local Masai village, the Tepesua Cultural Camp, which was a truly memorable experience for our us and our three children.   

We stayed at the Cultural Camp for one night which gave us a unique snapshot into local life.

Great UK Day Trips this Summer

Family travel website Take the Family shares its top days out with the kids.

Life, alas, can't always be about big family holidays and exotic locations, and if you're looking forward to autumn and winter trips overseas, you'll need to keep the kids entertained in the meantime – and often when the weather isn't so great. 

Save your battery and avoid losing your electronic devices at the airport

In light of the recent security changes, mobile phones and electronic devices need to be switched on and be accessible through the security process at all major UK airports.  If you’ve spent too long checking out your next adventure’s itinerary or can’t put down your latest book, check out a few ways to help save on battery life so airport security can be as smooth as possible for your family.

Turn the WI-FI off on ebooks. You don’t need the internet on to access books you have already downloaded, plus it drains the battery super-fast.

Q1. What is your best memory of the holiday?

A1. The day with the elephants. I fed them watermelons and pumpkins. We gave them a bath as well in the river. It was the first time I met an elephant.

Planet Earth's biggest football competition is upon us and brings with it memories of tournaments past. Be it Gazza’s tears in Italy, Maradona’s Hand of God in Mexico, or Ronaldinho’s brilliant (or lucky) free kick sailing into David Seaman’s goal in Japan, all have a strong sense of place associated with them. Sadly, these three examples bring with them a reminder of England’s inevitable defeat in the competition.

Top 5 reasons to keep smiling about Thailand

For a country that has the reputation for being incredibly friendly and welcoming, the news about the military coup in Thailand is concerning. No one knows if the military leaders will look to re-establish a democratic political system in a few months … or how the country will settle.

However … what I do know is that I have just returned from the family holiday of a lifetime. With my wife and 3 kids we re-discovered our wanderlust. 

Here are my ‘Top 5 reasons to keep smiling about Thailand’:

The Family Adventure Company put their customers in greater focus …

We all know what it’s like to be a customer and over countless times we have all experienced varying levels of customer service from outstandingly excellent to “how can they get it so wrong”  poor  service.  If you pick up any business magazine or view most adverts you’ll read how many companies are these days claiming that ‘It’s all about the customer’…
