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, amazing landscapes 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.
We want to inspire kids to discover the world – both its awesomeness and its challenges. They meet other children as well as fascinating people working on real-world solutions; and experience the sustainability movement on a global basis. They explore a world of different ideas. They learn about the trials facing Africa’s wildlife by visiting an orphanage for elephants and rhinos and by actually walking with wild elephants in Kenya. They see what it takes to be an organic farmer in Costa Rica by helping pick coffee beans. They learn how to be a ranger in India’s tiger parks. These journeys, with more coming online soon, are meant to inspire our children to meet the world… head on…
