Summer Sun Family Holidays in Africa and the Middle East

For families who truly enjoy the heat and/or are travelling with older kids, Africa and the Middle East can be an interesting choice for the UK summer holidays. If you’re intent on heading there with younger kids, you will certainly want to choose a hotel or resort with a kids’ club or crèche where they can seek refuge from the intense daytime heat. In general, but not exclusively, this is a part of the world where five-star and/or all-inclusive hotels tend to dominate the family market.

Clearly, water is a good thing when it comes to holidays in this region – hence the popularity of properties with their own splash parks. Good beaches are also key, as are waters suitable for those keen to snorkel or scuba-dive – the Red Sea being a prime spot for family diving holidays.

Some destinations, including Dubai, offer very good packages and discounts for those travelling in their hottest months, when there are fewer visitors.
