Luxury accommodation and experiences crafted for families

Highlights

  • This 9-day itinerary begins in Cape Town, South Africa where you will have four nights to settle in and explore the city. Head out on two private full-day tours to dive into the rich history and natural beauty of the region. Take in the views atop Table Mountain, immerse yourself in the colorful Cape Malay culture, and take to the marina on stand-up paddle boards or bike if you prefer more physical activity. Along the Cape Peninsula, look for rogue penguins and walk through the fairy-like milkwood forests as you stop along the small towns which hug one of the world's most scenically beautiful coastlines.
  • Fly to Kruger National Park for four nights on safari at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge. Twice daily game drives offer the opportunity to see lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, rhino, hippos and so much more.
  • For little ones, the Elefun Centre is a sure highlight. Expert educators will take the children on bush walks to identify tracks, look for spoor, and identify medicinal and edible plants. They can also work out some energy in the play centre and engage in the endless activities curated to help them make the most out of their time in the bush.
  • Return to the airstrip for your flight to Johannesburg and onward travel arrangements

Extend your safari in Kruger's Timbavati or take in a new landscape at malaria-free Marataba or in the Eastern Cape.
