‘You need to make time for your family no matter what happens in your life’

Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook

Barrier Reef

Whether you find Nemo or not, all ages will adore this breath-taking phenomenon. If it’s your first time snorkelling or scuba diving, you can all learn together – accept that your 8-year-old may learn annoyingly fast! The opportunities for gaining knowledge, awareness and understanding make this a fabulous trip of enrichment as well as a seriously fabulous holiday.

Safari South Africa

If travelling in a family group with children of any age you will love the shortlist we’ve drawn up for you. We’ve ignored the camps or lodges that just say they’ll ‘accept’ you children and chosen those which value their presence, create engaging activities for them, seeing them as future wildlife ambassadors. Witnessing the wonder in your child’s eyes as it sees its first elephant in the wild is priceless but the lifelong interest that may follow is truly rewarding.

Texas Family fly drive

You may already have a horse-crazy teen in your family in which case, booking a tour that indulges him or her at somewhere like the Dixie-Dude Ranch will elevate you to super-cool status. If not, then do consider this as a non-rider too; on an authentic working ranch you’ll get to ride cowboy-style as well as hike, fish, swim and lots more. Yet another great way to join in activities altogether – ‘yee-haw!’
