#1 Meet orangutans in the jungle of Borneo

Not in any rush to see the Big Five? That’s okay. On this family adventure to Malaysia, Borneo and Indonesia we’re taking you and the little ones inside the Jungle Book instead. From color and culture in the urban jungle of Kuala Lumpur to twilight elephant treks and special spa treatments in blissful Bali, the highlight of your adventure is this: boarding a private boat to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center to get up close to some of the region’s last remaining wild orangutans. Meeting these gentle, orange animals is high up on many travelers’ bucket lists, but to experience it with your nearest and dearest is something that will stay with you for years to come.

#2 Chocolate making in Cartagena

Nestled in the middle of the awe-inspiring Andes and bordered by the warm Caribbean Sea, Colombia is the perfect family destination. Whether it’s horse-riding through the fragrant coffee fields in Cafetero, snorkelling in the Rosario Islands, or chocolate making in Cartagena, this is a boisterous and crowd-pleasing family vacation in February. A visit to Bogota, Colombia’s capital, wouldn’t be complete without a stay at The Four Seasons Casa Medina; dripping in colonial charm, inviting open fires, and hand-carved doors, it’ll be hard to walk away. As night falls, a professional guide will take you on a ghost tour through La Candelaria, spilling you spooky stories about Bogota’s most famous cathedrals and monuments. Fret not, it’s suitable for all the children.

#3 Living the gourmet lifestyle on the beaches of Antigua

The idyllic beaches of the Caribbean are an ideal warm vacation spot in February, the days can be as relaxed or as action-packed as you and your little ones desire. And what better island to wind up on than the white powder beaches of Antigua? Besides the private plunge pools, countless Kids Club activities and multi-bedroomed villas dotted around its luxurious family-friendly resorts, there are mountains of exciting activities for you and the kids to embark on. Snorkel above colorful coral reefs, feast on picnics full of your favorite snacks on the uninhabited Green Island, and map out Antigua’s night skies from Jumby Bay. In the evenings, settle down with all the family for private-beach dinners and BBQs under the stars, with gourmet food whipped up by your own catering staff. What more could you want?

#4 Leopards, luxury and cocoons

Go where the wild things are with this adventurous family vacation – deep into the heart of Yala National Park, Sri Lanka’s most iconic nature reserve. Surrounded by wildlife in every direction, go in search of the elusive leopard, study breathtaking species of flora and fauna, and attend workshops to learn about the behaviour of native wild elephants – all with the help of naturalist guides. In the evenings, return to the jungle-fringed beaches of Yala with nights at the charming family-friendly Wild Coast Tented Lodge. Here you can enjoy beach croquet and family picnics before hunkering down in your contemporary ‘cocoon’ with an adjoining mini ‘urchin’, so you can keep the kids entertained but have space when needed. Copper bathtubs, private plunge pools and wild flora on your doorstep; this is glamping at its finest.
