It's a wonderful world and there's no better way to experience its magic than by taking your family on an family adventure holiday. Travelling with children is incredibly rewarding as they see, hear and are in awe of the small things that us adults can sometimes take for granted. With over 30 years history of running adventure travel holidays, coupled with our experience of travelling with our families, we know exactly what it takes to make a family adventure. Each of our family adventures has been designed to ensure that both parents and children get the most out of their holiday.

We have adventures that focus on the world's breathtaking landscapes, from the national parks of the American west to the high Himalayan valleys of India and Nepal. You can visit Machu Picchu on a family adventure holiday in Peru, or hike in the high valleys below Mount Everest in Nepal family adventure. Choose from an action-packed itineraries to keep teenagers entertained or more laid-back holiday for all the family.

Wildlife can also be an important element of your holiday with KE, whether that's stroking an ostrich and meeting the meerkats on our Family Garden Route holiday in South Africa, visiting a young elephant rehabilitation sanctuary in our on Family holiday in Sri Lanka, lions on a Tanzania Family Wildlife Spectacular and Tigers in Rajasthan.

On any KE family adventure, you should also get a feeling for the culture of the country you're visiting and we try to include those little elements that make your experience more ‘real', such as pizza-making in Italy, ice-fishing in Sweden or creating your own ‘batik' in Sri Lanka .

Whether you are a regular KE client looking to share your pioneering spirit with the children, or you are dipping your toes in the waters of adventure travel for the first time, you should find your perfect holiday amongst our family adventures. Exotic cultures, breath-taking natural environments and amazing historical treasures have never been more accessible for the whole family to enjoy.

Group sizes are limited to a maximum of 16 to allow easier interaction with the local people and to leave fewer footprints in a world where it is important that we are environmentally aware. Choose one of our active family adventures and get ready for the greatest show on earth!

Although it was not the ideal time to go on safari as the was still plenty of greenery and water about, we saw plenty of animals and all the animals we were expecting to see, our favourite being the African wild dogs at a kill site which were were lucky enough to watch for an hour. Our guides (Andrew, Izzy and Mellow) were very professional, easy going and good cooks. I'd highly recommend this trip.

mobiling. We spent a whole day with our snow mobile guide Goran driving out into the wilds, seeing moose and snow mobiling on a frozen lake before going back to his house for refreshments. The accommodation is very warm and cosy and the meals were delicious. Finally we need to mention the spa which was an ideal way to relax after a day in the snow.

We loved Camp Ripan, and throughly enjoyed KE's programme of activities. The hotel provided sledges, and all around the outskirts are lit marked trails, so in any spare time we could still have fun in the snow.

The meals were excellent, and the staff were friendly and helpful, the cabins were comfortable. The guides were genuine and enthusiastic, and we particularly enjoyed the husky sled ride and the snow-shoeing. To conclude, a great way for a family to sample the delights of the frozen north!
