Families will receive special Annabel Karmel recipes as part of their pre-trip welcome pack
On two point four tours, knowledgeable local guides immerse guests in wildlife, local culture and cuisine.

“Kids are a lot more likely to eat and like the food you give them if you cook it with them first. Making Annabel Karmel’s unique recipes at home with kids will get them excited about where they are going and give them a taste of the delicious food they will be trying while on holiday” says two point four founder Richard Liddle. A passionate traveller, he left the successful adventure company he founded in Oman to head off on a round-the-world family adventure to 18 countries across five continents when his son was just two years old. This was the start of family adventure specialists two point four.

two point four welcomes children of all ages but is the only operator that specifically arranges adventure holidays for two to five-years-olds, with professional, accredited childcare staff on hand throughout.
Richard continues “I am firm believer that adults’ sense of adventure doesn’t disappear when they have kids, but until now,no companies have catered to this. Many parents are nervous about taking kids on adventurous holidays, but for my wife, son and me it is such an enriching family experience that I wanted to share my knowledge, and that of other family experts like Annabel Karmel and our wonderful professional childcare staff hosting the trips, to help other families do it too.”
The family adventure specialists; two point four’s small group, escorted tours focus on sustainable and responsible travel and are fully centred around families. The first tours are a 10-day trip to Costa Rica, that includes a visit a Cloud Forest similar to one recently featured in Sir David Attenborough’s ‘Seven Worlds One Planet’, and a 12-day adventure to Bali. Annabel Karmel’s recipes for guests booking these tours include a delicious and easy to cook Bali inspired chicken noodle basket and a colourful Costa Rican exotic fruit salad lolly recipe.
