adults – and South Africa is the perfect place to give youngsters their first taste of a safari, thanks to direct flights and minimal time difference.

For clients interested in taking in a few places, Intrepid Travel’s South Africa Family Safari with Teenagers trip combines safari drives with a visit to a traditional Zulu village, hiking at Blyde River Canyon and camping experiences in spectacular surroundings.

AUSTRALIA Australia might not be first on the family list due to sheer distance, but


for those willing to brave it, the rewards are ample – and it’s not just about kangaroos, koalas and kookaburras. “It’s super family- friendly,” says Tom Waite, senior product and category executive for Discover at Kuoni. “The roads are wide and safe, parking spaces accommodate family cars and all destinations have an abundance


of affordable, apartment-style accommodation.” Recommend the tiny


Whitsunday island of Hamilton for a family experience in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. For those into man-made thrills, suggest the Gold Coast, where the Australia Zoo, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Dreamworld and Warner Bros theme parks create a giant, child-friendly playground. Book it: Travel 2 offers a 10-day Gold Coast holiday from £1,129 on selected dates between August 12 and October 20. The price includes a seven-day family pass to Dreamworld and admission to several other attractions, as well as Heathrow flights and campervan hire. travel2.com
