Cape Town Winelands and Kruger Family Holiday

Inspirational safari family holiday to South Africa

This family adventure combines South Africa's most famous regions, Cape Town and the Kruger Park, with the added feature of a few days spent exploring the picturesque Cape Winelands.

Begin with 5 nights in Cape Town, at the boutique guesthouse Clarendon Fresnaye, well located for exploring this marvelous city and all its famous sights, from Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront to Cape Point and Robben Island. The next stop is the vineyards of the Cape which surprisingly isn't all about wine tasting and has plenty for children to do from family picnics, mountain biking and horse riding to chocolate tasting and witnessing the duck parade at Vergenoegd estate.

Conclude this exciting family holiday with a safari at Kambaku Safari Lodge in the private Timbavati Game Reserve, bordering the Kruger Park. You and the kids will enjoy thrilling Big 5 game drives and, whilst the children are entertained fun-filled, child-centered activities, you can relax by the pool. Spend your evenings re-connecting as a family under a starry African night sky. We promise they won't miss their screens one bit.
