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

With just a two-hour time difference to the UK, South Africa can be an ideal trip for a first experience of Africa. Cape Town offers a variety of hotels on the waterfront that have excellent facilities for families including kid’s programmes and educational activities. Cape Town itself has so much to explore with the famous African penguin colony and Table Mountain which can be accessed with a cable car. By hiring your own family vehicle, you can explore the Garden Route from George to Port Elizabeth, with many excellent B&Bs along the way. Stay at self-catering lodges and enjoy your own pool and barbecues. There are many stunning, untouched beaches along the South African coast, particularly at Port Elizabeth, where hours of fun can be spent in sand.

For families, one of the best principles to follow when planning a trip to South Africa, is to design it around the animals. Hermanus offers fantastic whale-watching between July and November. Monkey Land and Elephant World are theme parks that have been thoughtfully designed and provides some great close-up experiences with the animals. There are some great family-friendly lodges in the national parks, in particular Addo Elephant National Park and the Shamwari Game Reserve, who provide dedicated staff to tailor your safari experience to your family’s needs.

A tailor-made holiday to South Africa with your family will leave you wanting to go back for more – with or without the kids!

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.
