Adventurous Holidays for Adventurous Families

Discover the world with Stubborn Mule and see places that others only dream about.

What we do

Using our experience and knowledge we will help you create your perfect family adventures, designed with the interests of you and your children in mind. You can choose how, when and where you want to travel, and the whole itinerary is tailored to your particular requirements. From toddlers to teenagers, we understand the needs of all age groups. Budding archaeologist in the family? No problem, we’ll arrange a visit to an out of the way Burmese tomb that will fire their imagination. Budding naturalist? We’ll arrange for you to track lions on safari in Tanzania or visit a remote cave at sunset in Cambodia when more than a million bats fly out for an evening drink. Find out more about how we can plan the perfect family holiday for you.

We’ve travelled the world on family adventures with our children and we know what works; we know that children will be persuaded to leave the pool to enjoy exploring the Sri Lankan countryside if they are riding on the back of a bullock cart. We know that the rainforest of Costa Rica will look all the more appealing when flying through it on a zip-wire. We know this because we’ve done it with our children.
