Winter Sun Family Holidays in Africa and the Middle East

North Africa and the Middle East can make an excellent winter sun destination with kids, with temperatures more bearable than at other times of year - important if travelling with younger children. Africa itself can be very hot, depending on where exactly you choose to go – if heading there with smaller kids, do check you’ll have air-conditioning, swimming pools to hand and perhaps a crèche or kids’ club where they can be entertained out of the heat.

We’ve hand-picked our favourite family-friendly accommodation and organised trips in the region, whether you’re looking for all-inclusive beach resorts in the likes of Morocco, Tunisia or the Red Sea in Egypt, perhaps with their own waterpark, or have your heart set on a swanky hotel in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Oman or Jordan, where luxury exists hand in hand with desert adventure and cultural treasures. Or how about an upmarket safari lodge in South Africa, perhaps combined with a five-star city break in Cape Town? Whatever your dream holiday in Africa in the Middle East, we can make it a reality for you.
