Your tailor-made itinerary

Cape Town Grootbos Madikwe Safari Lodge

Indulge the entire family with this fantastic combination of city break, marine safari and Big 5 safari. Staying in Cape Town at the exquisite Twelve Apostles Hotel, a 4 nights stay gives you and your family all the time in the world to make this city your home from home and discover Cape Town's many attractions. A 2 hour drive from Cape Town takes you deep into one of the most prestigious nature reserves on the Western Cape Grootbos. Grootbos is an incredible family destination, jam packed with activities for all the family to enjoy.

From there you travel to Madikwe Game Reserve for an unforgettable family safari. Madikwe is one of largest game reserves in South Africa, but it's relatively undiscovered status makes for fewer visitor numbers and as a result your family benefits from a much more private and relaxed game viewing experience. This beautiful park has the added benefit of being completely malaria-free making it an ideal reserve to enjoy with your children.
