Cape Town Winelands and Safari Family Holiday

Inspirational self drive family holiday to South Africa

Take the family on a journey of discovery through the best of South Africa. Road trip through Cape Town and the picturesque Cape Winelands region and end off with a Big 5 safari in a private Kruger Reserve. Set off the exciting trip by seeing Cape Town's sights from Table Mountain and Cape Point to Robben Island and the V&A Waterfront, all from the luxury of the 5-star Twelve Apostles Hotel, known for its incredible sea views. Then stay on a 300-year-old wine farm, Boschendal. The winelands offer a surprising number of activities for the whole family, from picnics and mountain biking to horse riding and chocolate tasting. There will of course be plenty of opportunities for the adults to enjoy the beautiful wines of the area.

Conclude this exciting vacation with a Big 5 safari in a private reserve bordering the Kruger Park. Here you will have a private guide and vehicle for the ultimate flexibility and freedom to maximise the experience for you and the children. Ngala Safari Lodge runs a Wild Child programme with daily nature-centred activities for the children, allowing you to kick back and relax by the pool.
