The world in one country would be a pretty accurate description of South Africa, one of Africa's top tourist destinations. All this fantastic variety means that South Africa family holidays are crammed full of diverse things to do: big game safaris, relaxing beach breaks, hiking and horse riding trails, and just about every laugh and thrill-inducing activity you can think of at action-packed Sun City.
If it's animals they want then let your family's imagination run riot at one of the world's greatest wildlife destinations - the Kruger National Park. Or how about a Big 5 safari in South Africa's malaria-free regions such as Madikwe Private Game Reserve or the Eastern Cape reserves - both offer superb family holiday accommodation and a great interactive approach to game viewing.
It's not all about big game though. Dig out the bucket and spade because South Africa's Garden Route has hundreds of miles of winding, sandy coastline and great family beach holiday destinations with plenty of sunshine and warm, foamy waves. And to really get the most out of your time in South Africa, start or end your family Garden Route holiday at everyone's favourite city of Cape Town.
We've selected an incredible range of family-friendly accommodation from exciting, loads-to-do resorts to fantastic safari lodges; beachfront hotels to luxurious South Africa villas - exclusive-use homes where you can relax with your family in private.
