The Garden Route


A Family Holiday in South Africa

A Family Holiday in South Africa

South Africa is becoming increasingly popular with families from all over the world who are looking for a holiday that offers sunshine and beaches and plenty of activities for kids in a country that is truly family-friendly.

A stay in Cape Town to begin with allows time to relax after your international flight, and see the attractions in the city which children will enjoy (Table Mountain, the beaches at Camps Bay, the Two Oceans Aquarium, and the street entertainers at the V&A Waterfront) - also take a trip down to Cape Peninsula and stopping at Boulders Beach on the way back, to see one of the largest penguin colonies in South Africa.

Driving along to the Garden Route will take a few hours in the car, but once you are there, your children will love you for it! The list of things to do here really is endless - whale watching in season from the cliffs at Plettenberg Bay, walking in the Knysna Forest or Tsitsikamma National Park, or canoeing and fishing, as well as walking with elephants at the Knysna Elephant Park or The Elephant Sanctuary, watching monkeys swing through the trees at Monkeyland, horse riding, ostrich farms at Oudtshoorn, playing on the beach at Wilderness, boat trips on the Knysna Lagoon, and even marvelling at stalagmite formations in the Cango Caves.

Round your holiday off with a family safari in the malaria-free Eastern Cape.  A lot of the lodges will welcome children of any age, and several of these also offer special childrens programmes.

There are other malaria-free safari destinations too, and don't forget the fun-filled Sun City or the endless beaches of Durban - all just waiting to make your family holiday one to never forget.
