Ashish Sanghrajka Director of Industry Relations Millennials in Travel

Spend just a few minutes with Ashish Sanghrajka, president of Big Five Tours & Expeditions, and you clearly see his is driven by passion. This native-born Kenyan began to learn about the family travel company at an early age. As a child, he saw firsthand the value of customer relationships when clients often dined with his family in their Nairobi home. In the mid-1980s, his family relocated to New York, and later Florida. Sanghrajka attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, graduating with a degree in political science, with a special focus on international economics. In Charles Schwab's Capital Markets Division, he worked as an economic analyst and trainer. But that passion for travel resurfaced, and he formally joined the family business, Big Five, in 2002. Six years later, he became president of the luxury travel his father founded in1973 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The final keynote speaker of the day, Ashish Sanghrajka, focused on the best time to expose kids to family travel. Sanghrajka, who is President of Big Five Tours & Expeditions, described the "sweet spot" as any time between the ages of 5 and 15.

"Kids are sponges between these ages," he said. "They hear everything, and even if we think they aren't listening, they're listening and they are curious and engaged because they want to make an impact."
Sanghrajka went on to outline the importance of providing kids with context for why travel is important, noting that in many cases, the "why" is the most important message parents can pass along to kids when families venture away from home.

"Whatever destination you're going to, you have to ask yourself a key question: 'How is my being there going to make a difference?'" he noted.

"Getting exposed to local culture is enriching and shows us a world beyond ourselves," said Ashish Sanghrajka, the president of Big Five Tours & Expeditions, a Stuart, Fla.-based travel company specializing in custom cultural immersion trips.

But he cautions that without thoughtful planning, a cultural getaway can be canned and touristy instead of authentic. Here, are his top tips for taking a vacation with a true cultural sensibility.
Also, in developing countries, village tours, although popular, can be inauthentic. Explore small villages on your own instead. In Rajasthan, in India, for example, Mr. Sanghrajka likes staying in countryside properties and biking through the nearby villages.
CHOOSE SMALL HOTELS THAT ARE LOCALLY OWNED Chains and large, splashy properties won't give you a glimpse into the local culture, but staying at a small hotel owned by locals and situated in a former home, historic building or residential part of town will. Mr. Sanghrajka, for example, recently stayed at Saruni Samburu, a safari camp in northern Kenya that is owned by a couple who live onsite and hire their staff from the local Samburu tribes.
