KILIMANJARO KIDS

Five Star Kids - - FSK PROMOTION - To book Tauck Bridges www.tauck.com.au

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.

On-tour film vi­gnettes cus­tom-made for Tauck by BBC Earth nat­u­ral his­tory ex­perts; drift above the Serengeti in a hot air bal­loon; visit to a lo­cal vil­lage school.

ALPINE AD­VEN­TURE

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.

Pri­vate visit to King Lud­wig of Bavaria’s op­u­lent Lin­der­hof Palace, in­spired by Ver­sailles; spe­cial meet­ing with a ski jumper in Inns­bruck; hik­ing the Morter­atsch Glacier.
