1. Explore the Magic of Generations in Casablanca

Casablanca is a contemporary business and industrial powerhouse, but also the gateway to the heart of Morocco. When visiting with a family, there is no better way to experience the joys and unique perspectives of the city than through the eyes of other families who have lived, grown, and shared generations in the bustling city.

While often overlooked or quickly left for the more famous cultural cities, Casablanca has a soul of its own, shared by the experiences of local guides and the stories passed down by their grandmothers.

Each new tale will accompany a landmark that impresses, whether inside Casablanca or when visiting nearby villages that showcase traditions and the connectivity that stories bring to strangers and friends alike. As a family you will find magic in an experience that unfurls a new and unexpected view of Morocco.

2. Share the Adventure of Chimpanzee Troops and Constellations

Chimpanzee in Uganda

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Uganda

The best family memories often emerge from a shared adventure and there are few greater excursions than those the outdoors can provide. With a mixture of walking safaris and unforgettable starlight, you can capture your family’s imagination with the unforgettable experience of sleeping beneath a ceiling of stars after a day searching for chimpanzees.

Elevate the traditional camping experience with the possibility of elephants grazing on nearby trees or lions roaring in the distance beneath the star-studded sky as you embrace the timeless joys of the outdoors together.

A trek for chimpanzees can be immersive, filled with the scents of the forest, the sounds of a distant troop, and the opportunity to find an active and curious youth roaming through the branches. Whether you discover chimpanzees or just take pleasure in the night sky, the experience will provide a lifetime of countless stories.

3. Capture the Excitement of Bollywood

Majestic Taj Mahal in Agra, India

A visit to the movies may not seem like a lifetime experience until you have an evening at the Raj Mandir Cinema in Jaipur for an authentic Bollywood showing. Since the theater opened in 1976, audiences have participated in the movies rather than sat passively.

As a family, you can embrace the lively and passionate experience from the moment the credits roll on screen, as the crowd roars or jeers, celebrates the action or sings and dances along with the actors on screen.

Enjoy the pure pleasure of the experience and of feeling as though your family was pulled into the movie itself for a sensational sample of contemporary culture shared through the music, stories, and lights of quintessential Bollywood.
