Our favourite ways to get up close and personal with wildlife include interacting with orangutans in Borneo at the Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort, which combines the best of beach and wildlife. The resort’s own sanctuary has daily feedings, a great Kid’s Club and a private beach.

October also catches the tail end of Kenya’s Great Migration, one of the greatest spectacles on earth. We’ve put together a great 7-day itinerary that gets you close to the wildebeest action and lets you experience what luxury camping in the Masai Mara is all about.

Whale shark watching off the stunning Western Australia coast is also pretty spactacular and the luxury wilderness camp Sal Salis brings the concept of ‘wild bush luxury’ to this remote Australian coast. Experience the thrill of seeing the largest fish in the world up close.

Lightfoot Travel is a luxury tour operator, and we can help you plan your ideal October half-term family holiday. Whether it’s a week long African adventure or a long weekend Southeast Asian getaway.
