South Africa Family Vacations


  • Giraffe in Kruger National Park

Why is South Africa a great place for a family vacation?

South Africa offers families the opportunity to experience nature, wildlife, beach and city adventures. Family-friendly accommodations are easily available and well-priced throughout South Africa with custom-designed itineraries being the best way to ensure all activities and experiences are suited to younger travellers.

What are the top family activities to do in South Africa? 

Kids will love a visit with the penguins on Boulder’s Beach or enjoy walks and picnics at Kirstenbosch Gardens. Have a very unquie visit the Ostrich Farms and Cango Caves in Oudsthoorn. On safari, kiddies “bumbles” are so much fun with other creative activities at the Lodgings such as baking with the chef and art projects.
