Destinations you never knew were family-friendly
Best for: Unbeatable jungle experience.
Kids will feel like they’ve stepped into the pages of ‘The Jungle Book’ when they arrive on the beautiful island of Borneo. Best suited to the most intrepid of family travellers, once you’ve tackled the pretty epic journey (a minimum of two flights, of around 19 hours flying time), Borneo offers that real once-in-a-lifetime experience that will stay with you forever.
Lush rainforests and real desert-island style beaches of pure white sand make up this South East Asian paradise, along with plenty of child-friendly resorts to make your trip as relaxing as possible. However, it’s the amazing wildlife that will make you and your kids fall in love with Borneo. Take a trip to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre to watch these beautiful creatures play in their natural environment and learn all about the conservation efforts – the twice-daily feeding sessions and a visit to the baby orangutan nursery are both musts.
Mulu National Park is perfect for a real rainforest experience, spotting giant stick insects and neon-bright frogs, surrounded by the crazy sounds of nature, and make sure you check out the colourful marine life with a snorkel in the shallows.
