Solo parent family holidays

Just you and the kids? Perfect.

We get that families come in all different shapes and sizes and that planning a family holiday can be stressful, especially when you’re tackling the organisation solo. That’s where we come in! Our trips cater for every sort of family, so sit back while we take care of all the logistics, from accommodation to activities. Meaning all you have to worry about is creating special family memories together, watching the kids make new friends with fellow young adventurers and enjoying some much-needed time to relax.

While we don't currently offer trips exclusively for solo parents and children, you may be interested in our family holidays.

A mother and daughter's story – Intrepid Family Travel

Why choose us

Just for families

The clue’s in the title. These trips are made for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip.

Travel with other families

Travelling the Intrepid way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well-earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Small group sizes

Intrepid’s family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

Action packed

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained, so we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Safety first

Our leaders are specially trained to run family adventures, so you’re well taken care of. You can also rest easy knowing we conduct safety assessments on all our activities to meet local standards as well as our own comprehensive safety policy. 

Responsible travel

The world’s an amazing place and we want to do our bit to keep it that way. That’s why we choose to travel responsibly, giving back to the communities we visit and helping to create a sustainable world for our children. For us, it’s also about educating the next generation of responsible travellers.

Nubian village, Aswan, Egypt

Jump on a felucca and sail across the Nile to a Nubian village, where you'll share dinner with a local family. This is a great way to immerse your family in a different culture and learn about another way of life



Egypt Family Holiday
Two tigers in the grass at Ranthambhore National Park, India
Ranthambhore National Park, India

It’s one of the premier national parks of India, a place where nature reigns supreme. A game drive in Ranthambhore just might reveal a Bengal tiger stalking among the ruined forts and temples; in this jungle they can be spotted even during the day.

Kirsten · Traveled June 2024
We had a great adventure in South Africa with our 16 year old daughter. It was a fun group of fellow travellers from across the globe and everyone had a great attitude to the trip. Our guide was enthusiastic and fab. Our driver was safe and good fun. Our cook did a great job keeping us fed and happy. I’m. It a camper but the tents were easy to assemble, the mattresses were comfortable and the camp sites were great. Kruger was busy but great facilities and just an incredible day out. A wonderful experience and our family loved it.
