Hands up if you want to swim with turtles! Kids staying at Amanpulo in the Philippines can join the scuba team for a snorkelling trip around the house reef where they can feed the fish then swim with the resident sea turtles. The resort has its own turtle hatchery. More than 1,900 turtle eggs were laid on the beach in 2018. You can ask the team to call you when the eggs hatch so you can watch the baby turtles rush to the ocean.
Your kids might not be able to hike to the top of Everest, but if they head to Nepal they can enjoy dinner with a real-life Sherpa who has. He or she will be able to entertain them with exciting stories about their climbs and maybe inspire your tot to live a life of adventure when they are older.
For a jungle trek with a difference, go for a stroll with a herd of elephants. Take a short boat ride to the elephants’ home, then get ready to feed them bananas and give them a bath in the river. You can then join them on a walk through the forest and even take a trip to a waterfall.
