Luxury Family Holidays in July
School’s out and summer is well and truly underway - lets get the family holiday started. The long break makes a trip further afield far more relaxing so why not go as far as you can. The Top End of Australia is at its weather best and with 2016 marking the 40th Anniversary of Crocodile Dundee, there could be no better time to be time to bring out the quintessential Australian Outback.
Kenya is a wonderful destination for a luxury family holiday that gets less than its fair share of recognition, and with the dry season running from July to October this is a great place to go on safari. In the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro, Ol Donyo Lodge with its two bedroom family suite is one of our top recommendations not least of all for its Young Explorers programme featuring animal tracking, bush survival and ‘sleep outs’. Another great adventure destination that rarely makes it on to the consideration list is Mozambique –Africa’s undiscovered jewel. Imagine sailing around Northern Mozambique on a traditional Dhow. The weather is at its driest May through to October, and this memorable family holiday includes sea kayaking, sleeping in eco camps on tropical islands and camping in the bush.
Summer is a great time to go the Seychelles – why not make the most of the long break and take the family island hopping from Praslin to La Digue. If you are looking for more of a fly and flop family holiday after the trials and tribulations of exams, the Caribbean is an unbeatable luxury summer holiday with minimal hassle and low season rates. For a happy compromise to appease those with the spirit for adventure, embark on a ‘swallows and amazons’ style swashbuckling sailing holiday through the BVIs or enjoy the lush rainforest and beaches of St Lucia.
