Traveling as a family during the summer

Hot weather, blue sea, and white sand beaches; summer is a fantastic time to get away with all the family for some downtime or an adventure. Say goodbye to school runs and making pack lunches and hello to early morning swims and brunching with giraffes. Whether the family members are 8, 18 or 80, we’ve got the perfect set of itineraries to get hearts racing, taste buds tingling and eyes wandering.

#1 Gelato and Gladiator School in Rome

This action-packed trip through Italy has everything and more to keep the whole family engaged and entertained. Step back in time and learn about all things Roman as you and the kids enrol in Gladiator School at none other than the famous Colosseum. After donning a centurion helmet and challenging each other to a duel with (a blunt) sword and shield, you’ll try your hand at gelato making at one of Rome’s best gelaterias. Pick your favorite flavors, fold in the ingredients and taste your creation,  before zipping down the narrow backstreets on a vintage Vespa.

#2 Watch Africa’s Great Migration from a hot air balloon in the Mara

Kenya in the summer cannot be beaten. The dry land creates excellent conditions for spotting the Big Five on safari-drives and all of the other loved creatures that reside there. If your kids are fans of the Lion King and you’ve timed it right (ask our Travel Experts) you’ll be lucky enough to catch the mighty spectacle that is the Great Migration. Take to the sky in a hot air balloon or jump in a jeep on the ground, and watch the huge herd of wildebeests cross the Mara River, dodging the crocodile-scattered water along the way. In our opinion, this is one of the most exciting and heart-racing safari drives to experience in Africa, and who better to share it with than all your nearest and dearest? Not to mention the luxurious safari lodges nearby.

#3 Receive a blessing on the floating village of Lake Titicaca

Peru during the dry season is arguably the best time to visit; sunny days and bright blue skies. This cultural adventure through the depths of Peru is great for all ages, but whilst Machu Picchu is fascinating for younger kids, the hikes here are challenging, so if you’re the adventurous family type, it’s better suited for older children. From long hikes and hot springs in the hills to culture and cuisine in the city, Peru has a little something for everyone. One of our favorite experiences to enjoy as a family is visiting the floating villages on Lake Titicaca to meet the locals and receive a blessing from the welcoming community. After a day on the water, you’ll make your way back to the homely glass Titilaka lodge for panoramic views over the water and to hunker down with a good book or pack of cards.

#4 Swim amongst manta-rays in Indonesia’s incredible coral reef

Underwater worlds, pink sand beaches, and Komodo dragons; this diverse country holds the key to all the jaw-dropping views and untouched marine environments possible. With fun activities for all ages of the family to enjoy, the dry weather goes hand in hand with dragons spotting in Komodo National Park. However, at the top of our Indonesian bucket list is diving deep into the sea to swim amongst the majestic manta-rays at Makassar Reef. Swim, snorkel, dive or kayak; make sure to pack an underwater camera on this truly once-in-a-lifetime vacation.
