Best Family Africa Vacations

If you're in any doubt about bringing your family to Africa then rest assured: this continent has been delivering excellent child-friendly and family-oriented holidays for decades. Independent-minded families will relish the freedom of a self-drive vacation in South Africa or Namibia but we've also put together fly-in itineraries to access destinations further afield - and there are plenty of places to choose from.

It's hard to beat the got-it-all nature of Sun City or the laid-back ambience of Cape Town and the Garden Route but our best family Africa vacations also include malaria-free Big 5 game viewing at lodges with specialised safari programmes for children while our beach destinations feature amazing resorts with baby sitters, kids clubs and endless activities.

You can even combine a safari with a beach vacation for the family holiday of a lifetime! Do something different this year and choose one of our African family vacations - all the right experiences in all the right places.
