The first 50 families to book will also receive a free GoPro to capture special family moments.

New and exciting destinations for families to choose from this year include Namibia, Mexico and Oman. Whether spotting wildlife in Etosha National Park, cruising through the mangrove forests in Mexico or camping out in Wahiba Sands, discover a unique experience on all of Explore’s family trips.

Explore’s newFamily Oman Adventure spends seven days exploring this unique country. Families will take a camel ride across Wahiba Sands, following in the footsteps of the nomadic Bedouin and meet the local people of Qahid before spending the night in a desert camp on the edge of the Great Sand Sea.

Venture into the Yucatan Peninsula on Explore’s Mexico Adventure trip. Visit the archaeological site of Calakmul, cruise through mangrove forest watching flamingos, cool off by taking a dip in sinkholes and kayak on the crystal clear Bacalar Lagoon.

For wildlife lovers, the new Namibian Adventure is a 15 day trip exploring the dramatic scenery and biodiversity in Namibia. Spot elephant, black rhino, lion and giraffe gathered at waterholes in Etosha National Park and kayak along the coastline of the German colony town of Swakopmund.

Explore has also designed trips specifically aimed at families with younger children in mind. With a more relaxed pace, children aged four and up can enjoy tailored activities such as snorkelling, kayaking and learning to make pizza, with time at the end of the day to swim in the pool and relax in the handpicked family run hotels.

Explore’s eight day Young Family Sicily Adventure is based in the family run hotel in Letojanni. Travel by cable car and 4x4 up Mount Etna, learn to cook pizza at an organic farm and take a speed boat to the Blue Cave with time to snorkel in Giardini-Naxos Bay.

The new Young Family Tuscany Adventure spends eight days in the heart of the Garfagnana Valley. Families will kayak on Lake Vaglito, re-enact a medieval battle at Verrucole Castle and explore the cobbled streets and Renaissance walls of Lucca.

Ashley Toft, Managing Director of Explore commented, “We’re really excited about our new family trips and we’re confident that there is something for every family. There’s now more variety, tailored itineraries for those with young children and unusual destinations and experiences to entertain families with older teenagers who may be leaving school or heading off to university. There are also lots of fun activities thrown in for good measure - from biking around Bagan temples in Burma to climbing to the top of the world’s highest sand dune in Namibia. These trips have been designed with both parents and children in mind to ensure a truly memorable family holiday.”
