family adventure holidays

Is there anyone else booked on the Feluccas and Pharoahs leaving Sat 31st March?

Hi,

Interested in linking up with any other families doing the above trip. I'm a single mum with two children - 15year old daughter and a 9 year old son. This is our first Adventure Holiday trip but we have a number of friends who have done it and said how fantastic it is. They have offered us a number of tips and suggestions of things to take.

Please make contact if you are going. It would be great to chat.

Regards

Wendy

Going on a Family adventure? Read Rosie's advice

Travel, they say, does two things. It broadens the mind, and it provides memories. Particularly if you are a bit adventurous about it. My favourite moment in a holiday? Arriving. Stepping out of the plane, coach or boat; feeling the sun ( or rain) on my skin, hearing people talking in a different language. Being on another bit of the earth is just such a treat. “It’s magic!” I say to my children. Even hopping on the Eurostar amazes me. Sharing the magic with your children is of course one of the true delights in being a parent.

My Family Saharan Trip

What I really liked about Morocco were the local people. They were always really friendly to you, even when they were trying to sell you things. They always smiled at you and if you spoke the same language or even something close to it, you could have a really nice conversation with them!  We went to this amazing scarf gallery where all these scarves were hanging down and there were beautiful painted pots and tagines.

Our family adventure in Morocco

They are quite smelly. And their teeth look awfully menacing. When you are aboard one of them, and it stands up, there is a nasty moment,  as if you are on a fairground ride which is about to go terribly wrong. But believe me, riding through the Sahara on a camel is really one of those feelgood moments, even though – like me- you might be well out of your comfort zone while doing it.

My Experience of a Cuba Holiday

Ever wondered what a Cuba Holiday would be like? Read this blog from one of our travellers to see their curiosity and what they found exploring Cuba.

"I’d heard so much about this Caribbean Island and was intrigued to find out about the post-revolutionary social structure and couldn’t wait to see the architectural wonders of the pre-revolutionary period. I'd also heard great things about the walking, the waterfalls and the beaches.

Saadani Elephant Project – Report August 2011

By the beginning of August most of the early burning programme undertaken by rangers is usually finished, with some green shoots already sprouting from the remaining moisture in the ground and the early morning dew. This year the park remained green well into August, with much of the tall grass from last year too green to burn, and many waterholes, which are usually dry by early August, carrying water throughout the month. This had a significant effect on the behaviour of Charlie, our newly collared bull, and the herds with which he moved.

Saadani Elephant Project Update

21 September, 2011: Saadani has really come alive the last few months and we are really enjoying being based there.  We collared 3 more elephants and are seeing them pretty much each time we go out.  We have started to recognise each ele and have named them which makes it far more exciting when we are out in the field - the guests absolutely love the interraction with the Saadani elephants and I am absolutely certain that these huge herds

Eid without Mubarak spells the start of a new Egypt

The words tourism and Egypt are never found far apart, but the recent revolution has made even the gutsiest of travellers think twice about booking a trip to the exotic and cultured holiday destination.

As a leading trip provider in the region (and also huge fans of the country) we can completely understand. Although the revolution was peaceful, tensions ran high and the outcome was not always guaranteed to be a bloodless one.

Text messages home from India (Tiger Trails and Taj)

Each night, very probably at great expense, I sent a text home to my extended family to tell them about each day. This now has provided me with a short running commentry about this wonderful holiday and reminds me about how diverse and amazing the experience actually was. These entries are copies of the texts so they are not particularly detailed but were just snapshot postcards home but I hope, in some way, impart how special this holiday was - as this truly was, for me, a holiday of a lifetime.

 

Review of Feluccas & Pyramids family holiday from Phoebe aged 14

What  I really enjoyed was how much we were involved in the history. Ancient Egyptian history could seem quite boring, but our guide involved us in all of it – even making up little plays for us to act in, so we learnt a lot while having a lot of fun! At all the temples and tombs, our guide gave us little facts rather than vast amounts of information. This  was  easier to digest, especially for some of our group who were quite young!
