Every Dulabab commission, be it a family weekend vacation to a hidden corner of the Mediterranean, a one off special event on board a super yacht in Indonesia, or a multi-week South American helicopter expedition, draws upon the combined skills and experience, and capability of the Dulabab team outlined below.
Beginning with a substantial narrative with established objectives, we create both the logistical and practical elements, before finessing and layering on the comfort and luxury demanded by each individual. This approach ensures the optimal client experience.
HIGH END TRAVEL DESIGN AND FACILITATION

Working with some of the worlds highest profile individuals and families from Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America, unusual demands of comfort or experience have been matched by our ability to meet and surpass them.
Beginning with a thorough understanding of a particular clients distinct demands, concepts are discussed, finessed, and created with total transparency during this planning process including budgeting. For unique projects, this build process includes advance reconnaissance, an essential component where environments haven't been accessed before in such a way as being proposed. This collaborative and strategic approach with a client and often their extended family office team to building unique and pioneering trips, assures clients that their investments of both time and resources are most wisely spent.
We know from years of experience travelling with client families, as well as our own, there is often an oversight in accommodating the distinct needs and wishes of both children and parents ensuring the vacation time is enjoyed equally by all. Children can be more engaged, and inspired with a custom programme designed just for them.
On our extended team are experienced tutors of the highest calibre, (who may also be senior staff at the finest schools), who privately tutor and travel with parents and children while on vacation. An extraordinary holiday can include distinct daily time for the children to learn more deeply about a particular destination, it's natural history or enjoy mini-adventures of their own - or simply to keep up to date on important academic work. This gives both the children and adults opportunities to enjoy the journey in their own ways, while still enjoying a very special time together.
NON PROFIT AND SCIENTIFIC ENGAGEMENT
