Luxury Cape Town Winelands and Safari Family Holiday itinerary hero

Luxury Cape Town, Winelands and Safari Family Vacation

Inspirational family safari holiday to South Africa

This 'ultimate luxury' family holiday combines 3 of South Africa's most scenically diverse regions, the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, the picturesque Cape Winelands and the Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve. At each stop, you will stay in some of the best accommodation on offer in the country.

Begin by spending 5 nights at the beautifully elegant Cape Grace Hotel situated at Cape Town's famous V&A Waterfront. Here you will be perfectly located to enjoy the city's many attractions from Table Mountain and Robben Island to going shark diving or catching the penguins at Boulders Beach. Follow your city break with some true relaxation at La Clé des Montagnes, nestled in picturesque Franschhoek vineyards and plum orchards. Your luxury villa is only a short stroll from the quaint, historic Franschhoek village which offers some of the country's best restaurants. If you are feeling a little more active, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy in the Winelands from hot air balloon trips and hikes to bike riding and horse riding. End on a high by flying into the Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve and staying at Morukuru Owners House, an ultra-luxurious private retreat including a private chef and butler as well as a private guide and vehicle. On offer are a host of child-specific activities, from tracking lessons to baking biscuits, from beading to bush walks, from scrapbook making to board games. During these times, you can spend some time relaxing by the private pool.
