This family holiday is for those families looking to squeeze in as much of Southern Africa as possible. It is packed full of adventure and diverse experiences. It begins in South Africa's mother city, Cape Town with the stay at the boutique hotel, The Clarendon Fresnaye, conveniently located to all of the city's family-friendly sights from Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront, to the beaches of Camps Bay and seeing the penguins at Boulders. With non-stop entertainment, it will be hard to drag the children away but the next stop is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls in Zambia. Here you will stay at Thorntree River Lodge, where not only will you get tours to the Falls, but a host of other activities from village visits and river cruises in search of hippos, elephants and crocodiles, to fishing trips and rhino tracking on foot. The area is famous too for its high-adrenaline activities such as white water rafting and bungee jumping.

Conclude this epic trip with a two-part, fly-in safari in Botswana staying at two luxury tented camps in the Linyanti region and the Okavango Delta, both of which are famously teeming with wildlife. Activities include game drives, night drives, mokoro safaris and walking safaris as well as special children activities, such as bush walks with child-specialist guides. Not once will you be asked for screen-time, it will all be about nature and quality family time together.
