Ben has three children and despite his profession, can never make up his mind where to go on his next family holiday!
Ben has trekked extensively throughout Africa, climbed most of the big African peaks, sailed the Atlantic and travelled extensively in SE Asia and Africa.
A true expert on the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and Simien Mountains of Ethiopia, Ben has developed most of our African trekking routes and has an exhaustive first hand knowledge of Morocco, Ethiopia, Southern and Eastern Africa, South East Asia, Sri Lanka and Costa Rica.

With three kids ranging in age from 8 to 15 and a passion for the outdoors, Jayne is well placed to look after our more adventurous families. When not in the office or looking after her family, Jayne throws much of her spare energies into rowing (very) competitively.
Anna is somewhat of an expert on family travel, appearing in the Guardian and on national radio in that capacity. Anna has travelled extensively through Africa and the Americas with the children in tow and our wonderful family adventures are the fruits of that labour.
Favourite Wildlife Experience: A tie up between a rather amusing experience with an aggresive warthog in a campsite in Etosha National Park and spotting sloth bears in Costa Rica.
Favourite Family Holiday: Rafting the Coloroda River and Slot Canyoning the Escalante Canyons in Utah, US with her 6 year old daughter.
We know how valuable it is to be able to speak to someone who has been before. That is why we put all our itineraries through a rigorous testing process. That way we know what to recommend and can answer your questions based on first hand experience.
We have stayed in the safari camps, tested the game drives, walked the different trek routes so we can be confident our recommendations are right for you. With our family portfolio, we stress test our itineraries with the most demanding audience - the kids. That way we can be sure that when we say family friendly, we mean family friendly.
…We had a great time and would not hesitate to recommend Tourdust to families who might not have considered that such a fun and adventurous holiday could be open to them with children....
