Cape Town, Kruger National Park, Table Mountain…the list goes on! Build your dream family holiday to South Africa

When looking at taking the whole family to Africa, South Africa jumps off the page as being THE destination to look at for a multitude of reasons.

Most prominent of these is the sheer variety of experiences on offer. From the urban elegance of Cape Town all the way through the activity-packed Garden Route, there really is something for everyone. Even the Cape Winelands, an area often believed to be better for adults is great for families, with wineries offering activities for kids whilst Mum and Dad enjoy those all-important wine tastings. With malaria-free safaris available in the Eastern Cape and Madikwe Game Reserve, your tailor-made South Africa family holiday can be enjoyed without having to worry about taking special medication.

Accommodation has also really evolved over recent years to ensure that family groups can all stay under the same roof and enjoy a wonderful range of facilities. From multi-bedroom suites in larger hotels, and lodges with interconnecting rooms, to some of the most stunning private villas you will find anywhere in the world, whatever your accommodation requirement we will be able to fulfil it with a memorable luxury South Africa family holiday.

The way activities are offered has evolved too. Family-focussed safari holidays see kids out exploring with their guide, learning how to track animals, getting involved in game activities, and sometimes even helping make their lunch. Or they can enjoy time splashing in the pool whilst the rest of the family are out on a longer safari. It is not just limited to safari either, with specific programmes for youngsters on offer in The Battlefields, and some superb family guides that can be booked in Cape Town, which make days out fun for all of the family.

Whatever the make up of your group, our team will be able to plan a dream bespoke family safari holiday for you in South Africa, providing the perfect combination of hotels, choice of activities and travel arrangements to ensure the trip suits all of the family.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
