Family Trips

While nearly all of our trips are suitable for all ages and skill levels, some are a particularly great fit for families with animal-crazy kids. If your kid lives for Animal Planet, then their eyes will light up when you bring them to visit the same world famous Sloth Sanctuary they saw on the Discovery channel, where baby sloths are being fed with an eye-dropper at their breakfast table. They'll go crazy for our hands-on wildlife rescue center in Costa Rica, our treehouses, ziplines, tiger sanctuary and floating aqua-lodge in Thailand, the penguins and mating and courtship rituals of the wildlife in the Galapagos, and the cowboy adventure activities in Brazil's Pantanal, culminating with record sightings of jaguars. The mix of wildlife and cultural experiences in India is particularly suited to parents who want to ignite their family's passion to make a difference in the world. It will instill a genuine sense of gratitude and appreciation for life, for the opportunities we have, and for the things we take for granted. We customize all family departures with a minimum of 4 travelers, and we often put families with similar age kids together on the same trip which means new friends for the kids, (and an occasional welcome respite for the parents.) Below are some of our most popular family-friendly trips.
