Luxury Family Cape Town Victoria Falls and Safari itinerary hero

Luxury Family Cape Town, Victoria Falls and Safari

Inspirational family safari holiday to South Africa and Zimbabwe

This luxury family vacation combines a child-friendly safari in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park with a stay at the memorable Victoria Falls and the magnificent city of Cape Town in South Africa.

Cape Town is a particularly child-friendly city, with a host of activities to keep everyone entertained, from seeing penguins at Boulders Beach to heading up Table Mountain in a cable car. Staying at one of our favourites for families, the luxurious Cape Grace, you will be in the heart of the V&A Waterfront in the heart of all the action. The fun continues at Victoria Falls with an endless choice of adventures including helicopter flights over the Falls and boat cruises along the Zambezi River where the children can be on the lookout for hippos and crocs. Staying at the outstanding Matesi River Lodge, you will also go on game drives or go canoeing. Finally, you will stay at Linkwasha Camp, a luxurious tented camp in a private concession of the wildlife-rich Hwange National Park, famous for its huge herds of buffalo and elephant. Both you and the children will be constantly entertained by the many encounters with the animals around the camp and on private game drives. The memories will last a lifetime and the children will be begging to return. In both safari destinations, you will have the flexibility of your own safari vehicle and guide.
