Hands Up Holidays

Hands Up Holidays says

Do you want your children to appreciate how fortunate they are? Would you like to bond more closely as a family while on holiday?

  • bond with your kids
  • great for all ages
  • luxury accommodation
  • make a difference

Travel with us and you can visit some of the world’s most exciting destinations, and spend part of your trip helping those less fortunate or taking part in projects to conserve endangered wildlife.

And you won’t need to compromise on luxury because we will ensure you have the very best accommodation and facilities.

For children aged five and over, wildlife conservation is a fantastic way to make a difference and learn about the environment. We offer luxury holidays with conservation work in Costa Rica, Thailand, Namibia, India, Australia and New Zealand.

For teenagers, building projects are truly transformative, helping to instil great values in them as well as a sense of achievement. You can help provide a decent place to live or learn in Morocco, Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, Bali, Vietnam, Cambodia, India, Belize, Brazil and New Orleans.

You will return home with lifelong memories and a desire in your children to keep making a difference.

Wherever you go, we will arrange luxury hotel accommodation in fabulous family-friendly resorts with a tailor-made itinerary that suits your available time, budget and interests.
