Unlike other family holiday destinations in the world that provide simply one attraction, South Africa is an entirely diverse country from the beautiful city of Cape Town, Big 5 safaris and picturesque winelands scenery to adventure on the Garden Route and sun-drenched beaches. In addition to this the 'Rainbow Nation' is home to a large number of different cultures with a very interesting history.
A highlight of any family holiday to South Africa is almost always the safari in one of the country's Big 5 reserves. Our specially designed children's programmes bring the magic of a safari to life. Days will be filled with fun-filled and educational game drives and activities like collecting bugs, pods and feathers and learning how to identify game and animal tracks.
Wherever you choose to visit, South Africa's first world facilities and excellent infrastructure make it surprisingly stress-free to travel around, despite its size.
Our dedicated Mahlatini consultants are all exceptionally well-travelled around South Africa so are perfectly placed to offer first hand advice. Our programmes and accommodation are hand-picked to suit the needs of our families. Your holiday is your own so expect your consultant to completely tailor-make your trip with your family in mind.

Family Holiday to South Africa & Zimbabwe
The best holiday ever. We all loved Cape Town. The family safari was amazing. We loved Serondella. Victoria Falls- spectacular and Franschhoek was civilised and enjoyable.
Family Holiday to Seychelles & South Africa
The whole itinerary was perfectly suited to our young family and expertly put together thanks to the great advise of Monique. She really listened to our requirements.
Wonderful variety of special experiences, delicious and plentiful food, and memories for the kids to treasure (and us!). We also learned lots about the culture and wildlife of South Africa. Wonderful!
Well organised, good presentation of information, good guidance on choices
My only slight suggestion would be to assist with holding seats on flights
