Families will wake up to views of snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro and discover who lives on the slopes of Tanzania’s mighty mountain. Children get the chance to experience the life of Maasai warriors: dining under the stars, feeling the beat in a drum circle, making beaded jewellery, and learning how to speak Swahili or throw a spear. In search of Africa’s Big Five, you may see lions resting under baobab trees, wildebeest making their way past herds of gazelles and elephants up close. Families travel in open-top safari vehicles where everyone has a great view of Tanzania’s wildlife during morning and afternoon game drives, and there is a chance to float over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon. A selection of tented camps and safari lodges in the best locations means your family becomes part of the unbelievable wilderness pageant that comes alive right outside your door.

Very few places on Earth offer as much breathtaking beauty – and outdoor adventure – as the Alps. Tauck Bridges’ week- long Switzerland family holiday is a trip that takes you from Zurich to Munich. You’ll take a cruise on Lake Lucerne, ascend Mount Pilatus in Switzerland and travel across the mountains aboard the Glacier Express to St Moritz, then into the Austrian Alps and Innsbruck, and on to the Bavarian magic of Munich. Along the way familes will get the chance to go whitewater rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing and glacier hiking. Together you’ll ride cable cars and the world’s steepest cog railway. They’ll also be a ski-jump demonstration and a chance to experience some traditional Tyrolean fun and games.
