Savuti boat trip hero

Cape Town, Botswana and Victoria Falls Family Vacation

Inspirational family safari holiday to South Africa, Botswana and Zambia

A memorable family trip combining the best of Cape Town with the highlights of Botswana and the majesty of the Victoria Falls. Expect luxurious family rooms, kids’ nature programmes and a private driver and guide in Botswana and Zambia. This will give you the most personal and flexible experience for your family.

In Cape Town, stay at the Twelve Apostles hotel with incredible ocean views and easy access to the city's main family attractions such as Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront and the penguins at Boulder's Beach. Then show the children one of the world's 7 natural wonders, the Victoria Falls in Zambia. Stay at Toka Leya and get far more than just a trip to the Falls. Take the kids fishing, canoeing, bungee jumping or on river cruises in search of crocodiles and hippos. End with a life-changing safari in Botswana and stay in 2 camps in the famous Okavango Delta and Linyanti regions, both of which offer the country's best wildlife. Your stay at Savuti Camp and Chitabe Lediba will offer you morning and evening game drives in open 4x4 game viewing vehicles, boat trips and walking (age dependent).
