The Best Family Safaris in Asia

A safari is always a popular choice for a family holiday. Besides Africa, Asia also offers a wealth of wildlife opportunities for animal lovers and children. Lightfoot Travel shares four family friendly safari holidays in Asia to expose children to nature and to ensure an interactive wildlife experience for everyone.

Spy Orangutans in Borneo

Take your jungle VIPs to the Borneo Rainforest Lodge in Sabah. This award-winning lodge is set in the middle of the Danum Valley, which is home to orangutans, pygmy elephants, sun bears and hornbills. Not only can your children go on an animal-spotting drive and enjoy eco-walks with a guide, but they can also get a bird’s eye view of the rainforest if they take a stroll along the Tree Top Canopy Walkway. The perfect jungle adventure for family travel.

Track Snow Leopards in India

If you’re looking for an adventure, Chamba Camp in Thiksey, Ladakh is hard to beat. This gorgeous glamping resort, which is high in the Himalayas, provides the perfect base for potential leopard spotting. Families will be able to join an expert tracker for a trek through the valleys and learn how to look out for paw prints and listen out for its unique calls en route. And while looking out for leopard prints, they might be able to track those sure-footed ibex, Himalayan wolves and Tibetan sand foxes.

See Elephants in Sri Lanka

Expect to see smiles a mile wide, when you take your children on safari in Sri Lanka. On a 4WD adventure through Yala National Park, they will have the chance to see elephants, monkeys and even an elusive leopard. Book into the Wild Coast Tented Lodge. You will be certain to love the Family Cocoon Suite, which comes with an adjoining urchin tent for kids.
