Excited to announce the launch of our new family collection, the full release is below ...

From camel trekking in the Sahara to safaris in Kenya, if you're looking for a family adventure then look no further than Tourdust, a specialist tour operator with a new collection of family adventure holidays.

Jun. 12, 2013 - From camel trekking in the Sahara to off the beaten track safaris in Kenya, if you are looking for a family adventure where you can explore and discover the world together as a family, then look no further than Tourdust <>, a specialist independent tour operator that has just launched a new collection of family adventure holidays <>.

Tourdust specialises in independent-minded holidays for people who want to get off the beaten track. Featuring characterful accommodation and thoughtfully designed adventures, these are the kind of holidays you won't find on the high street. The new Tourdust family collection includes family holidays in Morocco, Turkey, Croatia, Peru, Kenya and Sweden all created and tested by families for families. Prices start from £500 per person including flights. 

Anna Colclough, who co-founded Tourdust with her husband, Ben, says,   "Just because you have children, it doesn't mean you have to stop being adventurous. As experienced travellers ourselves and with a young family, we started with a blank piece of paper planning out dream adventures for our family. We've dragged our children to the deepest Sahara, through the tangled souks of Marrakech, explored wilderness game reserves in Southern Africa and rafted remote rivers in America. Our new range created and tested specifically for families is the ultimate wish list for adventurous parents and children."
