Incredible company. We've used Travel Beyond for Africa excursions for many years. Always a great experience with great planning, great people and accommodations. We have made many family memories in places like Zambia, Kenya, Zanzibar, South Africa, Botswana. I've recommended Jeannie Fundora and Travel Beyond to all my friends, as I have full confidence that you will not only NOT be disappointed, but your expectations will be exceeded!

Our son and daughter-in-law had used Travel Beyond in the past as had friends on their recommendation and ALL had high praise! Now we have experienced why! There are so many details to planning such a trip and we quickly experienced how wonderful it was to have someone else in charge from meeting us at the airports, getting us through customs, etc. Just follow the guide. Our guide for Capetown area was Dave who was absolutely charming and full of knowledge and SO personable. We all fell in love with Dave and hated to part with him. We had some snafus in the plan and he handled each so smoothly with a plan B, both of which were delightful. Next to Ngala Safari Lodge. Our guide, Japie, won us all over very quickly with his wit, charm and incredible knowledge and skill. At Timbavati Private Game préserve you can go “off road” and we’ve decided we wouldn’t want to do it any other way. We were a little late arriving but they fed us a quick lunch and got us on our way. The lodgings were amazing...rustic elegance...as was the food. We had a welcoming note from our agents, Jeanie and Melanie, at each place and surprise events planned to celebrate our 4 special events! Jeanie arranged a quick tour of Victoria Falls and then on to Chobe Game Lodge which has an amazing setting on the Chobe River. It’s a park so there was no off road viewing. We were disappointed in our guide as she was more a driver than guide but we did get to see a lot of animals and some lion activity! We’re now trying to think what would we like Travel Beyond and Jeanie to plan for us next!!

Our vacation was amazing and absolutely perfect. Jenny and Rachel planned every detail of our safari adventure, and all my husband and I had to do was show up, ready to go. We had the most wonderful trip, staying at three different Kenyan lodges. Every one of them was slightly different, but we loved each place. I will definitely use them again, for the next time we travel to Africa, and will be tempted to do exactly the same itinerary! But I won't, since I know they have even more options in their portfolio that I will also love. If you use Travel Beyond, you will be cared for and everything you need will be arranged perfectly.

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, 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.
