This 4-part family holiday begins in Cape Town, with its superb beaches, dramatic mountainous scenery and great restaurants, shopping and sights. Your family will stay at the Table Bay Hotel right in the heart of the famous V&A Waterfront, giving you easy access to all of its attractions. Spend 4 nights exploring the city before heading to the small coastal town of Hermanus where, in season (June - Nov), the family can enjoy whale watching either from land, by boat or from the air via a scenic flight. Or if your heart can take it, the kids may love to go shark cage diving (over age 8).
When you have had your beach fun, its a short flight to one of South Africa's most breathtaking routes, the Panorama Route where sights such as God's Window and the Blyde River Canyon will delight everyone in the family and make an impression that will last for a long time. The undoubted highlight of the holiday will be experiencing a Big 5 safari together at Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve in the Kruger. With your own private vehicle at the luxurious Chitwa Chitwa Lodge you will have the freedom to enjoy the wildlife experiences at your leisure. Dine under the stars and share special memories around the campfire. Family experts at Mahlatini will have experienced holidays similar to this with their own families and will tailor a trip best suited to your family.
