Family Holidays with a twist – Les Petits Caravanniers, and their Family Adventure Trek
It’s that time of year when we all start thinking longingly of holidays – so we thought we’d help you out a bit with our ‘family friendly holidays with a twist’ series: we’ve found some of the freshest and best ideas to help you think of something beyond the ordinary. Let’s all make our 2014 trips something extraordinary, whether here in the UK or heading to wider horizons.
First up in the series is Les Petits Caravanniers – an 8 day family adventure trek on the edge of the Sahara in Morocco.
This super bi-lingual family trekking holiday starts out beyond the Atlas Mountains amongst the palm-fringed oases of the Draa Valley. Here, you meet the Berber crew and their team of camels, and set out on a 4-day trek on the edge of the great Sahara Desert. Travelling in the traditional way of the camel caravan, the route will take you across high sand dunes to isolated villages and rock ridge viewpoints.
Sleeping out in the desert, meeting Saharan dwellers and hunting for fossils, this is an enchanting experience for the whole family. This unique trip is run with a mix of English and French families – it’s a great way for youngsters to make international friends and develop or practice language skills. The trip also includes time for sightseeing in the wonderful city of Marrakech where the evening entertainment is still provided by jugglers, acrobats and story-tellers.
