Educational Trips

Once your children are above a certain age, they may need more than just a beach and a bucket and spade to keep them amused. This is the time to get more adventurous with the holiday planning, and even take the chance to make it educational. We could harp on forever about our belief that holidays can, and should, be as informative as they are fun - even if that’s just absorbing a different culture – but there are some stand-out destinations where you can delight in seeing the children learn as they go.

Whether that be at the Danai Beach Resort in Halkidiki, where they can learn all things Greek, from dancing to cooking to the language itself. Or in the Pench National Park in India, where they can get the real-life Jungle Book experience and join the 'Junior Rangers' in search of leopards. Or a trip to the birthplace of Darwin's theory of evolution, the Galapagos Islands, where their little minds will marvel at the incredible diversity in wildlife these islands have to offer. In Yala National Park in Sri Lanka, they can learn to identify local animal tracks such as deer and leopard, identify edible plants and even learn to navigate using the stars.

As we're sure your budding David Attenborough's will have a million and one questions on everything they see, we make sure there's an English-speaking guide on hand who'll have all the answers.

Now don't panic, just because a holiday is educational for the children, it doesn't mean it should be any less luxurious. A stay at somewhere such as the Galapagos Safari Camp provides the best of both worlds - you can stay in comfort while remaining close to nature, with giant tortoises walking right past your breakfast table.
