Ultimate Luxury South Africa and Seychelles Family Vacation

Inspirational safari & beach family holiday to South Africa and Seychelles

Staying in arguably the very best accommodation on offer, this ultimate luxury family itinerary includes 3 very different locations in South Africa and the Seychelles. Take the family to see one of the world’s most beautiful cities Cape Town, safari in a private Big 5 game reserve and then truly unplug and be castaways for 5 days at North Island, perhaps the most exclusive private island destination in the world.

Firstly, the family will fly to Cape Town, where you will stay at for 4 nights at one of the city's top hotels, The Cape Grace, conveniently situated on the V&A Waterfront. This ideal base allows you to explore the city and its many family-friendly attractions at your leisure. Follow this with a stay in the family suite of Singita Ebony Lodge in the private Sabi Sands Game Reserve, bordering South Africa's famous Kruger Park. With your own private vehicle and guide, you and the children will enjoy game drives at your leisure. The children can also partake in the popular Singita Mini Rangers' Course where the children can learn tracking animals; frogging; butterfly capture and release; astronomy; bush survival techniques; flower-pressing; game-spotting competitions; nature quizzes etc. Conclude this truly memorable adventure with an easy flight to the Seychelles and a helicopter flight to the private island experience that is North Island. North is a place of barefoot luxury where the family can truly unplug and be castaways for 5 days. Staying in a Beachfront Villa, you will have direct access to the beach and can explore the island on bikes, golf carts and guided walks. When you are feeling active there's snorkeling, fishing, boating, sea kayaking, and scuba diving to enjoy, with many activities included within the price.
