Meaningful luxury vacation with hands up holidays

Eco-Luxury Family Safaris

These days, safaris are family-friendly, with most camps and lodges welcoming children of all ages.

We generally recommend having our own private vehicle and guide – that way, if one of your kids gets a bit noisy or wants to go back to the lodge, you can do so without disturbing other guests.

And safari goes beyond Africa – you can experience fantastic eco-luxury wildlife safari encounters in South America, Alaska, Australia, and New Zealand. 

For eco-luxury lodges, discover our recommendations below.

Best Trips with Young Kids

If your kids are aged 5-10, we recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, where there are fantastic kids clubs, and you can all get involved in helping at a wildlife conservation project, and learn an enormous amount about the animals, such as elephants and monkeys.

Best Trips with Tweens

For kids aged 10-12, we still recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, plus India and Sri Lanka for wildlife conservation, as well as building eco-friendly stoves in Belize, Peru and India. These stoves can be completed in just a few days, and are fantastic for family bonding.

Best Trips with Teens

Animal loving teens can still help on a wildlife conservation project, perhaps turtle conservation in Costa Rica, Greece, and Turkey. Families with teens can also get immersed in the local culture and make a lasting difference on a building project, such as houses in Guatemala, Zambia and Cambodia.
