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
South Africa Family Safari with teenagers, January 2018
This was a wonderful introduction to Africa and its extraordinary wildlife. It is a basics trip so if you are not happy with camping and basic accommodation - consider upgrading to other options. Also there is a lot of time driving to destinations but in the end it was a chance to snooze and look out the window. The game parks were incredible and we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this trip.

Egypt Family Holiday , December 2017
We had a fabulous time on the Egypt Family Holiday! It was an excellent itinerary with a great balance of varied activities and "down time", with some well-priced optional extras. Our Tour Leader ensured that we were well informed about all aspects of the trip, and he made sure that everything ran smoothly. We felt safe and secure touring around Egypt with Intrepid!

Egypt Family Holiday , December 2017
On this trip we could not have done more, seen more, felt more safe or been better led. It was fantastic, fun and memorable. Everything we saw was as great as we hoped it would be, and our guide Hani was knowledgable, enthusiastic and really on top of things.I have to congratulate Intrepid for including so many wonderful experiences in the cost.
