Your tailor-made family safari to South Africa

3-Unwind-in-a-forest-of-bamboo- Babylonstoren Ant's Hill and Ant's Nest (14)

This exciting South African family holiday has all the elements of a truly memorable trip, it has a city break in one of the world's most beautiful cities, Cape Town, a relaxing stay on a working farm in the scenic Cape Winelands and an action-packed, malaria-free safari in the Waterberg. Begin with a stay at the luxurious One & Only Hotel at Cape Town's V&A Waterfront, perfectly located for the family to stroll to all of the Waterfront's attractions and to drive to Table Mountain or the beaches of Camps Bay. Heading further afield there's penguins to be seen at Boulder's Beach or older children may wish to go shark cage diving.

A stay at the exquisite Babylonstoren Farm Hotel is next. Here the family are invited to join in with the harvesting, pruning, planting or picking of our many fruits, herbs, nuts, spices and vegetables. There's also walks, bike rides, chances to interact with the animals on the farm, wine cellar tours and many more activities, both on the farm and in the surrounding winelands area.

Finally you will head north to the Waterberg region of South Africa and to Ant's Hill Lodge. Personally visited by the children of Mahlatini members of staff, we can't rate this lodge highly enough for its friendly staff and diversity of activity. It is the definition of family-friendly with free babysitting services and a very flexible activity schedule to accommodate children of all ages and interests. Activities include activities such as horseriding alongside zebra, giraffe and other animals, fishing, guided walks, archery, rhino tracking and bug and spoor walks.
