Sundowner Family Holidays

There's an art and a bit more of a challenge to designing the perfect family holiday. And we love a holiday challenge! We design each holiday from scratch so our starting point will be the make-up of your family, what you each enjoy, the age of your children and any hobbies or current fascinations. We also love hearing about where you have enjoyed visiting together on past holidays. Using this information we will pull together a trip perfectly tailored to your family with each detail thought through ... leaving you to just focus on the packing! Call us on 01273 923100 to start planning your Family Holiday today.

As well as experience of planning family holidays for our clients, some of the team have extremely well-travelled children who have helped steer the way that we design family holidays! We think the best family holidays are about getting the right mix of activities, sights and relaxation, keeping a close eye on journey times between areas and getting the order spot-on. Unless you have children with a super-keen interest in international culture and history, we also tend to find that mixing-in alternative ideas with being guided around a temple or museum works a treat – for example, cycling tours rather than walking, getting dressed-up in the local attire, a short cookery course in a local house. There’s often so much you want to see in a destination but we’d say that travelling with children, more than 5 stops in 2 weeks turns an amazing holiday into a bit of a whinge fest! We tend to suggest saving the relaxing part of a family holiday to the end of the trip and make this the longest stay so that the whole family can just kick-back and relax together and ponder all their new experiences before heading home.

We design every holiday from scratch to perfectly suit each family. Let us know what you’re looking for, a bit about your family and your budget. Let's get started before the other families take the best hotels!

Children On Safari

0-6 years – Please contact us on 01273 923100 to talk through the options for this age group. There are safaris we can recommend in non-malarial areas. Generally these lodges have children-specific safaris or the option for a private guide and vehicle so that you can ensure the safari is suited to your child.

7-12 years – Children of this age tend to love safaris especially when they get to track animals. Some lodges offer special “bush school” programmes for children. Guides are experienced in working with kids, and will show them how to recognise the spoor – tracks and droppings – as well as plants and small creatures. The only consideration for this age group is how long your children will be happy to sit in a vehicle before they get restless.

> 13 years – Teenagers tend to love safaris and are interested in what the guides have to say as well as learning about the local culture and meeting the locals. This is the age that we would highly recommend mobile safaris, where you go on safari by day and camp in a different spot each night experiencing the raw sounds, smells and noises of the bush with nothing else around.
