Cape and Madikwe Family Holiday

This family holiday includes a city-break in the cosmopolitan Cape Town, a laid-back stay in the Cape Winelands and a thrilling Big 5 safari in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, staying in luxurious accommodation throughout. Begin with 5 nights in the beautifully elegant, yet entirely child-friendly, Twelve Apostles Hotel offering some of the best views in Cape Town. With your hire car it is within an easy drive of the city's most popular attractions such as Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront and the beaches of Camps Bay.

The next stop is the picturesque winelands region which offers a surprising number of child-friendly activities from picnics and horse riding, to bike riding and visits to animal sanctuaries. Your stay at exquisite Franschhoek Country House will provide a child-minding service to allow you to treat yourselves to a meal in one of the many award-wining restaurants of Franschhoek.

End on a high by travelling to the Madikwe Game Reserve in the far north of South Africa. Tuningi Safari Lodge welcomes children and provides them with the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature, wildlife and the delicate eco-system first-hand. Experience exciting Big 5 game drives and some down time by the swimming pool. In the evenings, share the exciting stories of the day while you re-connect with your children without the normal day to day distractions.
