Why choose South Africa for your family holiday?

 
When we create your family holiday the starting point is to decide which country will suit you best. South Africa is one of the best places for family travel. It offers luxury, malaria-free safaris and there is also a lot to see and do beyond game viewing. South Africa is family friendly and is suitable for children of all ages.

Call us. We are a family business and we’ve been arranging superb family holidays for 30 years. We’ll listen carefully and ask the right questions. Then we will create the perfect trip for your family.

Travelling and the seasons

South Africa is the hub for southern Africa, so there are a variety of convenient options for your international travel from Europe and the USA. Broadly speaking South Africa has two climatic zones. The Cape and Garden Route has a “Mediterranean” climate with hot dry summers and cooler winters, with Atlantic weather fronts. Spring and autumn are often pleasant with plenty of sunshine and beautifully coloured landscapes. The rest of the country has hot, sometimes stormy weather from December to March and warm mainly dry weather the rest of the year. We explain the climate in greater detail here.

South Africa is the only country where you can take a completely malaria-free safari. Diverse areas like Madikwe on the edge of the Kalahari and the beautiful Waterberg are malaria-free and ideal if you are looking for a longer safari, taking in several contrasting reserves. Or, if you only want a few days on safari before doing other things, we can arrange for you to explore the Cape, enjoying an outstanding malaria-free safari at a private reserve on the Garden Route.

South Africa is a good choice if your family wants to mix a safari with other travel activities. Cape Town is an iconic southern hemisphere city. The nearby winelands and the coastal Garden Route have exceptional accommodation and plenty to see and do. Ascend Table Mountain, try whale watching, horseback riding and ziplining. Explore the mountains, rivers, forests and stunning coastline. Further east, in KwaZulu Natal, encounter Zulu culture, explore Rorke’s Drift and dive Indian Ocean reefs. We will prepare a well-paced itinerary, incorporating all the elements your family desires.
