If any travel company knows how to inspire on the subject of luxury family holidays, it’s Abercrombie & Kent. They’ve been doing just that for almost 60 years now and, if the suggestions for 2020 are anything to go by, their ideas are as a fresh and original as ever.

Note the word ‘suggestions’, because it’s kind of important to remember that A&K specialise in tailor-made luxury holidays designed by families themselves – with a lot of expert A&K help and advice, of course. And the only element that comes as standard is making sure every minute of your precious time is packed with unforgettable experiences – the ones that end up as family stories which begin, ‘remember the time …’.

In fact, A&K are now so expert at helping families plan luxury holidays worldwide they even manage to fit the most extravagant adventures into the tiniest half-term breaks. If you find that hard to believe, try China at Easter on for size or Christmas in Argentina or a South African safari for February’s petit school break, then have a look at all the other bright and beautiful luxury holiday ideas A&K have for 2020.

1/6 February half-term is made for sun, safari and classic road trips

February half-term might not be the year’s longest holiday, but it’s the one most families really deserve after January and probably need to keep them going until spring finally arrives. For February 2020 A&K are thinking sunshine and adventure, child-friendly safaris and activity-packed experiences tailor-made for teens.

  • Choose Dubai for February beach holidays with younger kids. The weather’s sunny but not too hot and direct flights from the UK take less than seven hours.
  • A&K think Kwandwe Ecca Lodge is a marvellous introduction to safari for kids from age five. It’s part of Kwandwe Private Game Reserve on South Africa’s Eastern Cape, so you could fit in a bit of the Garden Route here too.
  • Older kids might be more up for the challenge of Lewa Wilderness Camp at the foot of Mount Kenyawhere everything from walking and horseback safaris to game drives are designed from a child-friendly perspective.
  • February is also a good month for eco-aware teens to discover The Maldives’ longstanding commitment to conservation. And more active older kids could definitely be persuaded to endure a little long-haul if journey’s end is New Zealand and a classic road trip round Lord of the Rings’ country.
