Guests stay at unique, comfortable lodgings and immerse themselves in the local culture.
“Whether you want to horseback ride through an active geothermal area or see how the earth is ever so slowly pulling apart along the North-America and Eurasian tectonic plates or learn more about the day in a life of a Namibian farmer, these Greenloons exclusive family focused adventures will not disappoint,” says Irene Lane, founder of Greenloons.
