Family Holidays

Safaris and other hand-picked adventures in the wild

In a world dominated by social media, opportunities to spend time with your children, without the lure of a screen, are like gold dust.

We design our safaris to take you and your family out of your daily routines so you can relish time spent together.

And there’s nowhere better to do this than in some of the world’s most sensational wild places – from Africa to the Arctic.

For us, early days in Africa meant packing small children into a land-rover or a small bush plane and heading off to explore. The same basic urge to share the wild with our kids has never left us. These days our kids are bigger and we travel with our families from Morocco to Madagascar, Africa to the Arctic. This first-hand experience informs the trips we create for our clients today.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A GREAT FAMILY SAFARI

The cornerstones of a good a family safari are the quality of your guide and having flexibility to make the most of the game viewing. Our guides have the know-how to make everything run like clockwork, and the experience to fix it when it doesn’t. What’s more wildlife is anything but predictable, so if you’re lucky enough to find a lion hunting, you want to be able to watch the hunt unfold, not hurry home because lunch is getting cold.  Being able to guarantee both these things is key.

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE THRILL OF REMOTE LOCATIONS, WILDLIFE AND STAR-FILLED NIGHTS AND TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO UNPLUG AND REMEMBER WHAT THE WORDS “SHARE” AND “LIKE” REALLY MEAN.”

Why you can trust us with your family

At Natural High we all share an abiding love of wilderness and wildlife. As care-free youngsters we all headed off to remote corners of the world to live, work and explore the wild, from the Africa to Mongolia and the Arctic.

As we had our own children we wanted more than anything to share and pass on this passion to them. This meant letting them appreciate the extraordinary privilage of visiting these remarkable places, but above all it meant keeping them safe.

Travelling with our own children has given us extensive first-hand experience of what does and doesnt work with kids of all ages, but also of the importance of good back up and a safe pair of hands in very remote parts of the globe.

Another Perfect Trip

"Morocco was our fourth trip with Natural High and true to past trips, the itinerary was right on point for our interest and goals, all logistics went off without a hitch and the service throughout the trip was high end. Everyone we worked with were friendly and professional. We had a fantastic time...Thank you!"

Tom & Karen Holterhoff

Perfect holiday from start to finish.

"Absolutely excellent service. The itinerary was spot on and the whole holiday worked like clockwork. The pre holiday notes and briefing were most useful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natural High Safaris to others."

Angela R CR

Fabulous trip to Tanzania

"This is the second time we have used Natural High Safaris, and again they organised an outstanding holiday for us, this time in Tanzania, combining a safari and beach holiday that was top-notch. Highly recommend them, with huge range of experience and desire to really understand what it is their clients want - and then delivering! Thanks to Catherine Ronan."

An outstanding trip to the Himalayas superbly designed by Natural High.

"Natural High organised a 2 week family trip to Ladakh in August 2018. Andrea Hulme used her local knowledge to design an exciting trip that included a 5 day trek, white water rafting and numerous cultural visits and experiences. Their local partners Shakti were absolutely outstanding and we loved staying in the village houses as opposed to hotels. Their female Ladakhi guide Sonam was really one of the best we have every had on our travels."
