Launch of National Geographic Family Journeys in Tanzania and Italy.

Two new National Geographic Family Journeys itineraries in Italy and Tanzania are now open for reservations, according to G Adventures. The trips are being introduced as family travel demand exceeds 2022, making this type of travel even more in demand to book than it was prior to the pandemic.

Families will travel to Tanzania to experience the wonders of a safari as well as the vibrant village of Mto wa Mbu, where they will visit a community tourism project, see how banana leaf art is made, and have the opportunity to make some of their own. A gladiator “training session” will be held in Rome, and they will learn how to make their own Venetian masks and prepare pasta while in Florence.

When compared to the same booking period in 2022 (January 1–June 30), bookings for the National Geographic Family Journeys travel style have more than doubled in 2023, according to the small group operator and community tourism pioneer.

The fact that bookings are up 106% year over year is compelling evidence that family travel is on the rise once more, according to Brian Young, managing director for EMEA.

Families are looking to travel further afield and cross off some of those long-awaited bucket list trips because we’re seeing strong interest in Asia, Central America, and South America in particular. People are eager to share experiences as families, as evidenced by the large number of multi-generational bookings, which include grandparents travelling with parents and kids, says Young.

Families looking for a meaningful way to travel the world together are the target audience for the National Geographic Family Journeys collection. The itineraries were developed for visitors seven years of age and older to explore a location’s rich and varied characteristics.

The 10 existing National Geographic Family Journeys journeys are joined by the two brand-new journeys to Italy and Tanzania, making a total of 12 journeys. Other places to go are France, Japan, Iceland, Morocco, and Peru.
