Expedition Details..

A unique family adventure awaits you in Tanzania's fantastic national parks. On safari in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara, spot lions, rhinos, zebras, and elephants. Venture into a Maasai village, meet a local wildlife researcher, examine fossils of some of the earliest humans at Olduvai Gorge, and participate in hands-on activities specially designed for kids.

Discover stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife on a family expedition into the heart of Alaska’s untouched wilderness. Stay in cozy cabins in Denali National Park and in alpine luxury at a beautiful mountain resort. In Denali, head out on naturalist-led hikes to search for moose, caribou, wolves, grizzly bears, and Dall sheep, hit the trails on mountain bikes, and search for wildflowers and animals on a scavenger hunt. Meet Alaska’s wild residents up-close at a local conservation center, and scan the horizon for whales and other marine life on a wildlife cruise through Prince William Sound.

On the Galápagos Archipelago, sea lions loll and frolic, 100-year-old giant tortoises roam, blue-footed boobies strut their stuff, and pre-historic-looking iguanas pile themselves on lava rocks to soak up the sun. The magic of these islands is that their creatures are full of personality and unafraid—of people or each other. Travel aboard the National Geographic Endeavour or National Geographic Islander and join our team of local naturalists to learn about the unique wildlife and geology of the islands.

Voyage along Alaska's Inside Passage on an unforgettable family voyage on board the National Geographic Sea Bird. Exploring with our team of naturalists, discover hidden inlets by kayak and hike along sparkling salmon streams as you experience the pristine beauty of the Alaska wilderness. A special hands-on educational program is designed to encourage children's interest in topics as diverse as the feeding behavior of humpback whales and the identification of bear tracks in the wild.
Our approach during this voyage is one of discovery. We take time to stop and explore this beautiful and intriguing land up close, in the company of expert naturalists who have an intimate knowledge of the region. Our small ship has the flexibility to take us ashore to places that few others see. The long days of summer allow for wildlife viewing well into the evening hours. Throughout our voyage, kids' coordinators arrange scavenger hunts and special Zodiac cruises for young explorers.

Embark on an unforgettable family adventure amid the snowcapped peaks of the Canadian Rockies. In Banff, Yoho, and Jasper National Parks, explore a stunning wilderness of hanging glaciers, rushing rivers, and turquoise lakes. Choose from a variety of excursions for all ages, keeping your eyes peeled for elk, bighorn sheep, bears, and more. Learn about the abundant wildflowers and area wildlife while hiking through sweeping alpine meadows, and feel the thunderous spray of magnificent waterfalls. Journey along the famed Icefields Parkway, and encounter the largest ice cap in the Canadian Rockies. At night, luxuriate in elegant accommodations perfectly situated to embrace the area's natural beauty
