Pre-departure Family Travel Tips

Pre-departure Family Travel Tips

Travelling abroad requires careful planning, and when you’re travelling with kids, it becomes even more important to make sure you’re well prepared. At PlanetWildlife, we regularly have families going on safaris with us. A few weeks before their departure date, we make sure to send them a pre-departure pack so they’ve taken care of all the essentials. Other than the usual advice of checking your passports, and buying insurance, here are a few travel tips to keep in mind when you’re preparing for your next family adventure:

Kenya’s Cultural Heritage

Kenya’s Cultural Heritage

With Africa’s most dramatic migration stealing the show for the next few months, it’s no surprise that we’re completely in love with Kenya! The continent’s most magnificent animals will be engaging in a saga which will see them traverse the historic Masai Mara, an event which has captured the imaginations of poets, artists, photographers, writers, and travellers for countless ages, and which has become part of the eternal song for the people who have inhabited this great land for centuries.

Argentina Escape

Perito Moreno Glacier

We had an absolutely wonderful and unforgettable experience travelling to Argentina on our honeymoon, due in no small part to you and PlanetWildlife Group of Companies.

Preventing and Treating Sunburn

In most of the Northern Hemisphere, summer is here and that means it is time to go outside. Whether you are planning a safari holiday to Kenya or just a local hike, you will need to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. While a sunburn may just seem like a temporary irritation, getting sunburnt can not only put a damper on your travel plans, but it can also cause long-lasting damage.

Celebrating World Heritage Day

In Washington, DC, everyday I walk past many sites and monuments commemorating the history of the U.S. In your respective hometowns you have probably passed many important sites that form part of national and collective history without thinking twice about them. Today is the day to call attention to these important sites, and for people and organizations around the world to celebrate these sites.

Land of The Lion King

Veda Reddy recaps her Tanzanian Adventure.

Tanzania can truly claim to be the home of the Classic Safari as, in my view, there's no better place to enjoy an enriching wildlife experience than here. When my family and I landed in Africa, I could tell I had just stepped into a whole new world! We arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport where we were greeted by our guide, John, and driven to Arusha for a quick lunch before heading out on our African adventure.

Lake Manyara National Park

Ranthambore – more than Tiger Country

Our travel expert, Parveez Islam's experience to one of India's foremost National Parks .

A cold and chilly morning greeted me at the Sawai Madhopur Railway Station, in Rajasthan. This station is the nearest railhead to Ranthambore National Park and after an overnight journey from Hyderabad, I arrived in Sawai Madhopur ready for adventure. The wee hours of the October morning lent the place an eerie look and a fog enveloped the area.
