Cape Town, Durban, Drakensberg and Safari Family Holiday

Indulge the entire family with this fantastic holiday which takes in a huge array of South Africa's attractions, on both sides of this diverse and enthralling country. A memorable stay in South Africa's mother city Cape Town is followed by a short visit to sub-tropical Durban on South Africa's East Coast, giving you family a chance to experience these very different cities (and get some beach time!). You can satisfy your interest in the fascinating history and culture of this country with a trip through KwaZulu Natal province, including a stay in the picturesque Drakensbeg Mountains. It's impossible to get bored with holidays to the Drakensberg, with a spectacular list of activities on offer including mountain climbing, horse-riding, hiking trails and uncovering around 35,000 San rock paintings. There's also the chance to navigate the Sani Pass - a treacherous mountain road that links KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho. Complete this fun-filled family holiday by coming face to face with the country's unique wildlife on a child-friendly Big 5 safari.
