Accommodation on Africa and Middle East trips
A taste of what's in store...
Each of Intrepid's family trips has been built with a smooth blend of action-packed activities and flexible family time, just the way we like it. Want to know the sort of adventures you can expect with us? We’ve picked out a few of our favourites.
Visit a Zulu village in South Africa
Zulu villages are still traditional affairs. Tribespeople live in thatched huts and make a living off the land. Girls help the women weave and cook while boys and men tend goats and cattle. Meet the villagers, learn about local life and explore the surrounding Hluhluwe–iMfolozi National Park.
Experience on South Africa Teenage safari
Embrace sand and safari in the Saadani National Park
The continent’s big parks are all well and good, but only one straddles the divide between sand and safari: Tanzania’s coastal Saadani National Park. Head out on a sunrise walking safari, swap a game drive for a swim in the Indian Ocean and go hippo-watching on a boat trip down the Wami River.
Experience on Tanzania Family safari
Camp among the dunes of the Sahara
Picture it: you and the kids wake up in a Bedouin tent among the dunes of the Sahara. No sound but the wind over the sands and the occasional braying of a camel. Welcome to our Moroccan desert safari at the foot of the mighty Atlas Mountains.
Experience on Morocco Family holiday
4x4 through the canyons of Wadi Rum
Wadi Rum is Jordan’s vast, empty, beautiful desert. It’s known as the Valley of the Moon, a huge sandy valley punctuated by soaring granite cliffs and sheer rock formations. We’ll load the family into a 4x4 for an action-packed drive through the dunes to your very own desert camp.
Experience on Jordan Family - Journey to the Lost City
Egypt Family Holiday , April 2018
Incredible week! So much beauty, so much variety, great group, first class group leader, much fun and still plenty of time by the pool. I cannot believe we did so much. It feels as if we were away for much longer than a week.

Egypt Family Holiday , April 2018
Great family trip suitable even for grandparents! Children and adults all got on well together like a family - Hany played with children at cards, pool and swimming and gave us plenty of information on all subjects and gave us great care too. Please consider Eygpt for your holiday.

Egypt Family Holiday , March 2018
The group size was just right and there was a good mix of ages for the children - about half were teenagers. Our guide, Ahmed, was simply amazing throughout the whole trip. We did lots of things that it would have been very difficult to do on our own. There was a great balance of activities from temples to donkey rides; the day and night on the felucca was a real highlight. A perfect balance of culture and fun!
