Customized National Geographic resources for kids and adults provide inspiration to see the world with new eyes, make real-world connections, and craft compelling travel tales during the trip.
Wildlife and Conservation
National Geographic is committed to conservation and strives toward a planet in balance. On many Family Journeys, on-trip wildlife and conservation experiences will provide information and inspiration for travelers to remain engaged in wildlife conservation efforts long after returning home. One example is a thrilling safari ride in Kruger National Park.
History & Culture
National Geographic celebrates the history and diversity of human life on Earth. Family Journeys reveal the richness of local cultures in its many forms, whether through language and music, art and architecture, cuisine, clothing, and more. Young travellers can try their hand at inventing a machine using tips from Leonardo da Vinci, or discover Roman gladiatorial history and authentic artifacts including shields, swords, and armour.
National Geographic has a legendary legacy of exploration. Family Journeys seek to cultivate tomorrow’s explorers—people who are infinitely curious about our planet, committed to understanding it, and passionate about helping make it better. Each Family Journeys itinerary features activities and experiences that inspire hands-on discovery, and a fun and interactive day-long exploration-themed challenge for the whole family!
