National Geographic Family Journeys has cemented its partnership with G Adventures with an exciting new range of family adventure holidays. Those travelling with kids aged between seven and 17 can take part in nature research in Costa Rica, explore the Sahara, see the Big Five in South Africa and even have a bespoke shirt made by a tailor in Vietnam.
Perfect for the increasing number of families looking for a less traditional holiday but who want the convenience and security of everything being sorted out for them, the 12 trips across five continents embrace activities based on four National Geographic themes: wildlife and conservation; exploration; photography and storytelling; and history and culture. All activities have been carefully designed to appeal to 47-year-olds too as well as seven-year-olds. Food-themed activities are prevalent in many trips, since cooking and eating are things that families tend to enjoy together.
Pre-trip materials provided to families include an Explorer’s Journal, a Photography Guide and an iNaturalist app that lets them take pictures of flora and fauna and have them identified by other users.
Trips, which tend to book up six months in advance, include a maximum of 20 guests and are led by two chief experience officers (CEOs) to ensure a high level of care, safety and personal attention. Accommodation is three- to four-star, with pools where possible as well as family rooms, and trips have been carefully thought out with an eye for everything from the number of early-morning stays, to the length of drives and the timing of meals.
