Our Deeper Africa Safari was simply amazing. We fell in love with the country of Tanzania, it's natural richness, and it's beautiful people. Our guide Ammy was a big part of what made our safari special. We were able to be with Ammy for the entire safari and we enjoyed his perspective on everything from animal behavior to his culture and country. Ammy, who is also a dad, was so sweet and patient with our talkative 10 year old son. He even put up with our many questions with patience and kindness. It's wonderful to know that there are still places in the world like Tanzania where the animals can live in peace. It was mind-blowing to see the migration on the Serengeti and my heart broke with happiness to watch so many elephants roaming about in beautiful Taringire National Park. Karen and Will planned a perfect family safari for us. We stayed in amazing camps where the employees were so welcoming and charming. I would highly recommend Deeper Africa for anyone who wants to see and experience East Africa. We are already planning our next trip back and because of our wonderful experience, my son wants to move and work there some day.

It's hard to put into words how incredible our trip to Tanzania and Kenya was thanks to Deeper Africa. Karen had covered every imaginable detail and our 14 day adventure took place with an incredible guide, remarkable wildlife viewing, wonderful and welcoming camps. We knew this would be the trip of a lifetime, but now know we must return and not only do we highly recommend Deeper Africa, we would not consider another company for our travels. The willingness to work with clients to customize a trip, careful attention to detail and true love for Africa sets this company apart.

Absolutely exceptional travel company!! We had the trip of a lifetime and everything exceeded our expectations. I can't say enough good things about how our trip was planned, conducted, and enjoyed. We felt that we were safe at all times, taken great care of, and all of our needs and wants were anticipated and satisfied. It was just a lovely, exciting, wonderful trip, and I thank Deeper Africa for it!

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

    About The Family Adventure Company

    Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

    Who Travels With Them?

    A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

    How Does it Work?

    No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

    Why Travel With Them?

    The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
