Cape Town, Hermanus and Phinda Family Holiday

Staying in 5 star, luxury accommodation throughout, this thrilling family holiday is packed full of memorable moments. Starting in Cape Town, this magical destination offers so many attractions to appeal to every member of the family, and it is here you will spend five nights. From Cape Town your family will travel to Grootbos Nature Reserve; a luxurious pristine paradise showcasing the splendour of the Cape Floral Kingdom and the incredible marine life of the southern tip of Africa. At Grootbos the family can enjoy activities such as whale watching (in season), shark cage diving, walks and hikes, 4x4 flower safaris, cave tours, horse riding, scenic flights and quad biking.

A family safari at Phinda Game Reserve in South Africa's KwaZulu Natal province is the perfect way to end your trip - Phinda Moutain Lodge is heaven for kids and adults alike. While children partake in interactive activities that offer opportunities to learn and discover new experiences and cultures, adults will enjoy the dramatic views and private plunge pools in-between game drives that will ignite and excite the little ones' curiosity.
