10. Safari in Tswalu Kalahari
Children encounter elephants, meerkats (pictured) and other exotic beasts all the time - in books, on TV, even at the local zoo. But to see these creatures up close in their natural habitat is an extraordinary experience, and few places deliver it better than Tswalu Kalahari, South Africa's largest private game reserve. It's also a rare example of a safari operation that caters to kids, with family suites and a Junior Ranger program that includes archery lessons, animal-tracking clinics and guided treks through the African bush. All-inclusive prices aren't cheap — only 30 guests are allowed in the park at any one time — starting at around $1,000 a night for adults and $250 for kids aged 12 and over. Children under 12, however, attend free of charge.

More Before the advent of agriculture 10,000 years ago, humans got their food by hunting, gathering, and fishing. Scientists are turning to these ancient methods of subsistence for insights into how we can feed our growing global population in years to come—without overwhelming the planet. In its September 2014 issue, National Geographic magazine explores the evolution of the human diet across a wide spectrum of cultures: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/foodfeatures/evolution-of-diet/ By 2050 we'll need to feed two billion more people.
