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.

South Africa Teenage Safari , July 2017
We had a great time and have seen 4 of the big 5. It will keep it always in good memory. I was supported by our excellent tour guide Colin, the safe driver Alan and by the group constellation. The basic camping was great fun for the teens. It is important to be prepared to have no electricity on the camp sites.

Egypt Family Holiday , April 2018
Egypt Family Adventure was excellent fun. Although the kids were different in character, they all connected over this shared experience. The itinerary was fast paced and fun with lots of different experiences. Pools at the hotel for 'down time' was a hit! The Tour Leader was excellent, making the whole experience stress free and fun.
