Family Holiday Guide To South Africa

South Africa for a family holiday offers a perfect combination of activity, safari adventure and culture and with 1-2 hours time difference is very manageable even for little ones!

If you are first timers as a family then have a look at our classic family safari. All the family will love Cape Town - a clean and fascinating city perfectly desgined for families with a pedestrianised centre, street acts, fine dining, Nelson Madela statues and even a convenient and impressive aquarium.

It is also a brilliant base with family daytrips (you can hire a car or take a driver) to Boulder Bay to get up close and make friends with the penguins, climb the fabulous Table Mountain (or take the cable car) and take a day trip for lunch including some wine tasting on the way.

As well as Cape Town there are some Beach Resorts you could stop at, visit an Elephant Santuary, swing in the trees in a zip wire and much more.

It is easy to combine with a malaria-free safari such as Shamwari or Kwandwe which save on travelling and include the big 5: Elephant, rhino, Lion, buffalo and leopard!
