A South Africa highlights trip, this family holiday has 4 very distinct elements to it, where each stop offers entirely different scenery and activities. This is a trip where no child will ever moan about being bored! It begins with 4 days exploring Cape Town and its host of family-friendly activities from cable cars up Table Mountain and penguins at Boulders Beach to shark diving and hanging out at the V&A Waterfront or the city's beautiful beaches. This is followed by a stay at arguably one of the country's prettiest vineyards Boschendal. Here its all about wine tasting, there is a surprising amount for families to do from witnessing the duck parade at Vergenoegd estate to mountain biking, horse riding, chocolate tasting and historical tours of wine estates.
The next stop is all about marine life. You will stay at the luxurious Marine Hotel right on the beach in the coastal town of Hermanus, where hopefully the family will catch the whales (June - Nov) or other sea life such as seals and dolphins on exciting boat trips. Conclude this unforgettable family holiday with a safari in South Africa's famous Kruger Park. You will stay at the child-friendly Ngala Safari Lodge which runs a unique 'Wild Child' programme where the children will be thoroughly entertained by activities like learning how to track and identify animals or how to spot the Southern Cross in the night sky. Children of Mahlatini staff members have first-hand experience of these safaris, and we know this will undoubtedly be a highlight of in your children's childhood.
