A family holiday in South Africa will leave your little ones with childhood memories to treasure forever. With family friendly hotels and just a two hour difference from the UK, your little ones will soon start to feel at home in this exciting and varied landscape.
Keep your little ones busy from dawn till dusk with a stay in Cape Town, South Africa´s most popular and busiest city. Family attractions include Butterfly World, Two Oceans Aquarium and Planetarium. The city has a range of family friendly restaurants mainly located at the buzzing Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Families can stay at the One and Only Cape Town hotel where children will be kept entertained with a range of fun filled activities including jewellery making, folk tales and sing alongs.
Of course no trip to South Africa would be complete without a search for the big five. The Shamwari Game Reserve is home to lions, elephants and much, much more. Special family safaris are available which offer shorter journeys and make more stops to stretch little legs. For those worried about health implications there are also a number of “malaria free game parks” designed to give you complete peace of mind.
Of course no family holiday would be complete without a day or two on sunny sandy beaches. The garden route on the Eastern Cape offers miles of gorgeous clean beaches with plenty of things for kids to do including swimming, whale watching and even adventurous ostrich riding!
Some families may be concerned about family safety in South Africa. However follow the advice from your tour operators and you will ensure a safe and memorable trip. Planning a family holiday in South Africa between May and October will mean you are traveling in the dry season and enjoy the best of the sunny weather.
