Not until we venture out do we truly become citizens of the world. And, our children are the best ambassadors.
Traveling with children opens doors that we never would expect. Our Precious Journeys collection makes exploring the world fun for children and the adults they bring along. These adventures allow our youngest travelers to explore a wondrous world of exciting places filled with incredible animals, fascinating people and fun things to do. In crafting these unique journeys, our focus is on children between the ages of five and 11. We have selected the best options in touring that put children first such as the number and length of flights on any specific day, the number of hours spent driving between destinations, the flexibility available in meal options, availability of specialized children’s programs, activities, guides, and more.
Our first two Precious Journeys adventures travel to Kenya and to Costa & Nicaragua. In Kenya – Kids, Cats & A Treehouse, families have opportunities to visit some of the young orphaned elephants that have been rescued at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and later go on a walk with wild elephants in Tsavo National Park. They meet Maasai warriors who serve as their guides and trackers, and our guests have the chance to visit the guide’s family in his home village. Go out on a limb high up in a lone Warburgia tree overlooking the Mara River and perch in “The Nest,” a tree house equipped with state-of-the-art, night vision cameras to capture all the action.
Our Costa Rica & Nicaragua: Tarzan Swings, Aero Bunks & Monkey Bridges is an exceptional adventure full of learning opportunities and nature activities for a wonderful family vacation, including a visit to Kids Saving the Rainforest, a nonprofit project begun in 1999 by two 9-year-old girls, who wanted to help save the rainforest that they saw disappearing around them. Learn how to surf, go whitewater rafting, swim in a waterfall and search for spotted dolphins and migrating humpback whales. Sleep in vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airplane that has been converted into a delightful hotel in the trees. Experience an exciting canopy tour via zip lines, a Tarzan Swing and more! Learn what it takes to be an organic farmer.
This collection is all about authenticity of experience for the entire family. These journeys are designed to inspire our children to meet the world… head on and firsthand…
