How to maximise your £££s this summer

As much as we’ll hope for an ‘Indian summer’ or May-day heatwave, we might be setting ourselves up for disappointment this year, as the British weather probably isn’t going to surprise us! Luckily for us, there’s a spectacular world out there, and if you’ve paid in Pounds there are some beautiful places where your family’s Pound, will go a long, long way.

1. South Africa

It’s not all about he who roars the loudest!

Much like half of the population (we imagine), we’ve been eagerly awaiting the 2016 remake of The Jungle Book. The animals, the cast and the big screen action make this version of Kipling’s iconic novel, pure magic. But, we feel a little bad…

Shere Khan has been getting some serious publicity these days. What about the Hathis, the Kaas, the Bagheeras and of course the Baloos. We’ve narrowed it down and created our own top 5 animals we love to spot in India (sorry Shere Khan, you didn’t make the cut today!).

6 family travel myths debunked

Family travel often gets a bad rap. People think it’s all chasing your naked toddler through a hotel lobby while he/she screams for chocolate, or being stuck in a campervan or dreary chalet watching Finding Nemo so many times that you develop an urge to exterminate all marine life. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

7 top tips for kids on how to take a great adventure travel picture

1.  You don’t need all the ‘gear’.

Here at The Family Adventure Company, taking the ‘perfect’ shot for us is all about the right subject and the right atmosphere ie our families. And we found that we don’t need the latest digital camera and high tech tripod to take it on. A good old iPhone will do the trick just as well and most importantly, if you capture the spirit of the scene, then that’s enough for us! 

2.  It doesn’t have to be what everyone else is staring at.

Adventurous accommodation

Here at The Family Adventure Company, we like to mix it up a bit and give your family unique adventures and experiences that provide memories to last a lifetime: memories that will be enjoyed around the dinner table for years to come.

One of the areas that The Family Adventure Company is most vocal about is animal welfare. We don’t believe that animals should ever have to suffer for tourism.
