The Swords Travel Diaries: 5 Bucket-List Worthy Family Adventures

2020 travel adventures, suitable for the whole family, whether young or young at heart, for memories that last a lifetime

Meet Rescued Elephants in Thailand

Spending time at an ethical elephant sanctuary in Thailand is an incredibly rewarding experience. Amanpuri offers a tour to the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, where you will have the opportunity to meet rescued elephants who have suffered from working long hours in the logging and tourism industries. Get up-close to these gentle giants by feeding them their favourite treats and observing them roam, socialise, play in the mud and bathe in one of the expansive freshwater lagoons.

Spot Simba on an African Safari

Witness the real landscapes that inspired the Lion King during a safari on the captivating Kenyan plains. Base yourselves at Mahali Mzuri and embark on twice-daily safaris (permitted for children aged six-years-old and over), witnessing everything from herds of wildebeest, elephants and zebra, to leopards, cheetah and of course the lion, arguably the most magnificent animal on Earth and one of the Big Five.

Go Wild in the Seychelles

At Fregate Island Private, wildlife enthusiasts can become ecologists for the day by joining the island’s ecology team, undertaking research and conservation projects. Activities include tagging rare Magpie Robins, patrolling the beach where Hawksbill Turtles nest from October to January and observing thousands of Giant Aldabra Tortoises which roam freely across the wilds of the island. Make sure your little ones visit the nursery for the young tortoises, who are cared for up to three years in a bid to protect them against predators.

Meet Mickey Mouse in Florida

Base yourself in Orlando if theme parks are high up on your family’s agenda. Walt Disney World can take up a whole week alone, with five mega-parks packed with thrilling rides and the king of it all – Mickey Mouse. Just minutes away is Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort, a magical resort offering complimentary transportation to the parks, Character Breakfasts and nightly firework displays over the Magic Kingdom.

Visit the Fascinating Frozen Continent of Antarctica

Embrace your inner explorer on a once-in-alifetime cruise to Antarctica. Glide through ice-choked waterways and see some of the world’s greatest concentration of wildlife, including curious penguins, majestic whales and vast colonies of seals lazing on ice floes. Silver Explorer offers Zodiac rides (motor-powered
dinghies) and shore landings, to get closer to nature than ever before. For further inspiration and suggestions on your next luxury holiday, please contact us..
