BE A JUNIOR RANGER IN BORNEO
Even the tiniest tots can enjoy a jungle adventure thanks to the Shangri-la Rasa Ria Resort & Spa in Kota Kinabalu. The resort comes with its own orangutan rescue centre hidden in the jungle.

Tasks for mini rangers include monitoring the flora and fauna and feeding the animals.
VISIT A SECRET CAVE IN THE JUNGLE
Head to Rio Secreto in Mexico for a family adventure in the Yucatan. Here you can explore an array of underground rivers and caverns that crisscross the Yucatan Peninsula.

Each cave is filled with dramatic stalactites and stalagmites and it’s been called of the great natural wonders of the world.
TRACK ELEPHANTS IN KERALA
