If You Could Choose Anywhere, Where Would You Go?

* In collaboration with Lottoland.

I always find this a tough question, with 60 plus countries under my belt, I know there are still lots more to cover, and even then a lifetime wouldn’t be enough to see all the wonderful places in the world. However, there are still plenty of  places I would love to visit and maybe if I won the lottery I could go to all! What is on your travel wish list? Read on for some luxury family travel inspiration!

Giraffe manor, nairobi with kids, luxury family travel                Breakfast with wild giraffes!

Number one on my list is the Giraffe Manor hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. 

  • Imagine a stately 1930’s boutique manor hotel with only 12 rooms, where wild giraffes come to the window and frequently place their long, elegant necks through the window for breakfast and afternoon tea. An absolute once in a lifetime experience!  All rates include meals, local drinks, laundry and trips out in the jeep. Some of the rooms even have visits from the giraffes too!  I’ve been to Nairobi several times fo work, but we didn’t stray to far and often wondered down to the traditional market and picked up bunches of fresh scented flowers and local handmade artefacts, but this experience would be incredible! My friend Lucy went with her family and raved about it.

 

 

wild dolphin, luxury family travel

  • Tahiti or the Red Sea to swim with wild dolphins. Boats are only allowed in certain areas, so only the most curious dolphins will approach a boat. To experience swimming with dolphins, in their natural habitat where they are wild and free to come and go as they please, would be incredible.

 

 

gorilla, rwanda, luxury family travel

  • Third on my list would be back to the Congo but this time to see the wild gorillas.

Ever since I was about 12 years old and watched Gorilla’s In the Mist, I was saddened by these beautiful animals plight and inspired by the incredible work of Dian Fossey. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t politically safe for us to go at the time but another place to see them would be Rwanda. Karen, from Mini Travellers recently went and all I can say is WOW. Her videos and photos are incredible!  Childen under 15 understandably can’t go on this trip, so this one would have to wait a while but what a spectacular tick off the bucket list this would be.

northern lights, lapland, luxury family travel

 

Forth on my list would be a visit to see Santa in Lapland.

  • Although, I’ve seen the Northern lights from the flight deck a few times, I would love to see them from the ground too. Watching the kids faces meeting the real Santa would be pretty special too! Staying in a cabin surrounded by snow-capped trees and fairy lights, this would be the ultimate magical winter wonderland experience.
