South Africa is the ultimate family vacation destination. Nowhere else would families be able to enjoy such a fine combination of safe swimming beaches, malaria-free safari areas, outdoor adventures, and family-oriented resorts. In this diverse country, you can teach your children about the value of conservation in an authentic yet fun and safe environment. We offer a range of family tours and vacation packages. We will gladly tailor a package based on your requirements if none of these itineraries meet your approval.

The family-friendly Black Rhino Game Lodge offers a great value, four-star safari adventure. You'll enjoy twice daily game drives in open-air 4x4 vehicles and a visit to the Lion and Safari Park en route.
With its abundance of malaria-free safari areas, South Africa is the ideal destination for a family safari. Private game reserves like Madikwe, Shamwari, Marataba, and Welgevonden offer luxurious lodgings. In contrast, Pilanesberg and Addo offer more affordable yet fruitful and rewarding safari experiences with prime Big 5 game viewing.
Many safari lodges in the mentioned reserves aim specifically at families and offer special programs for children. Elsewhere in the country, many hotels and guest houses in the Garden Route and Cape Town provide family-oriented accommodations. At the same time, Sun City is a veritable paradise for children to have fun and parents to unwind.
There are so many adventures to enjoy with your family in South Africa. Observe the wonder on your child's face as they meet an elephant up close, and learn about marine life while exploring the underwater magic of the Two Oceans Aquarium. Wander into the subterranean depths of the Cango Caves, spot dolphins at sea, or learn how to track animals by following their spoor.
