For something really different to the daily grind, go long haul this summer. Mexico is a fantastic destination offering variety and plenty of sunshine on tap. The beaches are simply breathtaking – think miles upon miles of powder white sands stretching along the coast, as warm waters lap the soft sands beneath your feet. The sea is warm and clear, perfect for a spot of snorkelling amongst the colourful reefs and tropical fish. Although Mexico is a beach lover’s paradise, there’s no better destination to soak up the Latin party spirit, especially in Cancun. Party the night away at one of the colourful carnivals or buzzing night clubs, then rest and recover on a stunning beach during the day.

The Good, Bad & Ugly Safari Parks

When it comes to safari parks abroad, there are obviously going to be instances of unsung heroes; but also, atrocious service is not uncommon. Forking out hundreds of pounds for a safari holiday abroad will have left a rather large dent in your finances. With this in mind, you’ll want to make sure that you’re getting the experience of a lifetime. Here are the good and the ugly sides of staying at a resort:

Kruger Park

 

The smaller camps are usually the best, as the emphasis is on customer service. At some of the resorts in Kruger Park, you’ll be able to request specific units. Camp managers will pop by your bungalow to come have a chat, so you don’t feel so alienated in this unfamiliar company and can start building relationships with the staff.

In most hotels, you’d have no idea who the manager was! This way, if you have any problems, you can talk them over with the highest authority. You’ll even get personal hints as to where you can find rare animals.

If you arrive early, the staff will try to fit you in as soon as possible instead of making you wait. You’ll get personal cards on special occasions, which is always a nice touch.

In the Letaba Camp, things start getting bad. Here you can often find disinterested staff members who rarely reply to emails. Also Lower Sabie has terrible service; which is a shame, seeing as it’s one of the best places for wildlife photography. Requesting units is a nightmare. They’ll often take your money, but won’t tell you where you’ll be staying.

The camp looks dilapidated and the tents are in need of some renovation. Although you never expect too much from safari park food, the restaurant is very dirty. Garbage is on the floors and flies and birds are able to get at the grub. Spillages don’t get cleaned up.

Kgalagadi

 

Clean and efficient, the dune cabins are well maintained and the staff will rush to your door if there have been leopard or lion sightings. The staff really care about great service at Kieliekrankie wilderness camp and will make sure that you get the most out of your experience.

Etosha

 

You can always request a unit and there’s never a problem. The staff here will respond in kind to tourists; if you’re rude, you’ll get surly service, but if you’re pleasant, the employees will generally be charming. Why wouldn’t you be anything but nice to the operatives at your safari park?

Pilanesberg

 

These resorts are mainly three star, but they’re also great when it comes to staff. If you arrive early, they’ll radio housekeeping and see if you can go directly to your unit. If your accommodation is still being prepared, they’ll ask you if you’d like to set-up in one of the other units instead.

This is fantastic when you’ve been travel weary and you just want to lie down and indulge yourself in creature comforts.

Returning to Greece as a Family

When I first married my husband, we celebrated our wedding with a luxurious honeymoon to the Greek Island of Crete. For years, the memory of that wonderful trip stayed with me as the one truly unforgettable holiday of a lifetime. Our days were spent relaxing in the sun, taking refreshing dips in the sea, indulgent dinners in upscale restaurants and late nights in bars around the island.

When we started a family, I thought that trip to Greece would be our first and only experience in Crete. After some research, however, I realized that Greece could also be a great place for a family holiday. Even young children could appreciate the culture, history, recreation, scenery and cuisine on the island of Crete. In 2012, my husband and I brought our two children to Crete for a week long holiday. While the trip was certainly different from our honeymoon, it was no less incredible. Here are a few of the comparisons and observations I made when returning to Greece as a family.

On our honeymoon, my husband and I enjoyed a small but luxurious villa near to the beaches of Chersonissos. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual, but the nightlife was vibrant. Each evening as the sun set over the water the city came alive with music and young people from around the world. On our family holiday, we enjoyed the same setting but had a different experience completely. The resort we stayed at was family friendly and offered a kid’s club for children to enjoy, but we also had some family trips to the beach. There were several other families staying at the same hotel, providing our children with companions and friends for the duration of our stay.

On our first trip to Crete, we spent hours sipping coffees at small cafes, lingering over long lunches and enjoying incredible fresh seafood for dinner. I was worried that our children would not appreciate the local cuisine, or that we would be forced to rush through our meals and not enjoy them as much as previously. Thankfully, the restaurants on Crete catered to young children with classic meals like pasta, pizzas and sandwiches. There were several restaurants with special children’s facilities and toys to occupy them, something I really appreciated as a parent. The children also loved Greek desserts, and we made a daily trip to a local ice cream shop to enjoy new flavors. It was a wonderful way to spend time as a family, and my husband and I go to linger over those coffees like we wanted!

Traveling to Greece with children is certainly different from a couples or singles holiday, but both are exciting and beautiful trips that you won’t soon forget.

Though most every location is set to cater to families likewise as single travelers, at that place are some family holiday destinations and vacation spots that are head and shoulders above the rest.

If you are able to give the admission prices, both Disneyland and Disneyworld promise to be amongst the best family holiday destinations available. You’ll never find a kid who did not delight the theme parks, and there are lot of rides and activities to engage adults. But if you’re already a kid at heart, you should have no problem delighting either one.
