Elephants in Tanzania - by Gabriel Millard, aged 13

Their names are Colossus, Charlie and Jan. Despite their names these are not human beings. They are in fact, giant African elephants; and they live in Sadaani National Park in Tanzania.

Cutest animals in Africa - by Honey Millard, aged 10

Before we went to Tanzania, we visited Longleat Safari Park in the UK. I loved feeding the red deer from our jeep and it was fantastic when the monkeys climbed all over our car. The animals are a bit wilder in Africa, but in Longleat you are always guaranteed to see them as they don’t hide in the bush. Anyway, here is my list of the cutest animals we saw in Africa.

1. One of the cutest animals we saw in Africa, I think THE cutest was a tiny baby elephant. We spotted a tiny teeny one, just taller than some long grass. It was so sweet. We all took millions of photos of it.

Rosie Millard on the Longleat Family African Safari

After five days on the Longleat African Safari, my four children can tell the difference between a leopard’s pawprint and a hyena’s. They know what a Carmine Bee-eater looks like. They have found out what sort of animals visit a waterhole at night, thanks to an infra-red camera trap. They also understand that when Charlie the big bull elephant is pawing the ground, flapping his ears and trotting towards us trumpeting, it’s not really very dangerous. Really?

Tigers & the Taj Mahal by Honey - aged 10

As we heaved out of the plane, I think all of us were nervous about meeting the other families - each of us thinking about what the families would be like, the kids wondering whether the other children would get along with us and my mum and dad probably hoping we would be normal and polite!

As the first day went by we got to know the other families a bit better, there were 2 other kids involved in this mad adventure and they were quite quiet at first and then their friendly personalities came out.

Honey, aged 9. Blog on the Around The Bay of Naples

The things I liked about Italy were these.

Firstly, going up Vesvius. This was quite scary because you felt like you could just topple off the edge (but nobody did). It was also quite cold, with lots of clouds around, so I would advise you to bring a jumper or fleece! Pompeii was another Awesome adventure. I never knew the Romans cooked fast food out on the streets in stone pots, for example. It was sad to see people who had died in the volcano, lying down looking just like us.

Jordan is family-friendly as well as fascinating

Most people may assume that the intriguing historical sights of Jordan are best explored alone or as a couple - well I can categorically say they are wrong.

Make no bones about it, the country is fantastic if you are on your own, but to the surprise of many, the Jordan offers family-friendly holiday that is welcoming and fascinating. Throughout the entire duration of the trip the kids were able to play football and other games with the very hospitable local youngsters, which really did make the holiday extra special.
