Inspirational Family Vacation Destinations to Visit This Spring

Glittering beach days in the Côte d'Azur, luxury cruising across Maldivian seas and wildlife adventures by Victoria Falls – family holidays can take many forms, but they should always be fun. From exciting activities and tantalising meals to moments spent together in a backdrop of spectacular natural beauty, here are several inspirational family escapes with heartfelt Anantara hospitality and luxury.

Victoria Falls – Zambia

Perhaps the ultimate iconic location and one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the might and majesty of Victoria Falls must be seen to be believed. Witness it together from the banks of the Zambezi or take it in from the air on a microlight excursion. The Falls alone would make this a wonderful place to visit. Add in safari outings and nature excursions in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park for the quintessential African adventure that has something for everyone.  

Le Chaland – Mauritius 

Beach and crystal clear water of Mauritius

Often associated with white sands, sapphire seas and lazy beach holidays, Mauritius has all of that, but also offers an abundance of things to see and do for adventurous families. Sure, the beaches and reefs will keep many young explorers happy for a week or two, but those who venture further will uncover an island brimming with things to see and do. Explore the jungle in search of spectacular waterfalls and perhaps catch a glimpse of the native flying fox. Delve into the island nation’s rich history in Port Louis or witness natural wonders such as the seven-coloured earths of Chamarel.  

Koh Samui – Thailand
