Africa's Best Family Destinations: Safari on South Africa's West Coast

Cape Town is an starting point for a South Africa family holiday: from the city’s many local attractions it’s a comfortable drive up the West Coast to one of the most child-friendly reserves in Africa: Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve, a South African Natural Heritage Site set in the beautiful foothills of the Cederberg. Home to Bushman rock art sites and plenty of flora and mountain wildlife (including the very rare and elusive Cape leopard), Bushmans Kloof offers a range of activities that make the most of the great outdoors.

Make the most of the weather for morning hikes to view the incredible rock art of the San, one of the world’s First People. Taking a guided walk in a wilderness reserve is a great way to encounter the natural world close up.
