Combine three very different areas of South Africa with this family-friendly holiday that takes in all the scenic drama of Cape Town along with Big 5 game viewing on the edge of the Kalahari and a stay at Africa's premier fun-in-the-sun holiday resort. First of all, find out why people love Cape Town so much with a stay at the stylish Welgelegen Guest House. Head up Table Mountain, go wine tasting in the Cape Winelands or laze on the popular city beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton. Then move on to the fun-filled Sun City resort where you will stay at The Cascades Hotel.

Here you'll enjoy a huge range of on-your-doorstep activities from watersports and waterslides to world-class golf and game drives plus much, much more. For the final part of your holiday, you'll set off for the Madikwe Private Game Reserve and a stay at Madikwe Safari Lodge. Enjoy two days of game drives in this exclusive, malaria-free reserve; parents travelling with children will love the fact that their kids will be catered for back at the lodge with specially designed and professionally led safari activities.

Day to Day Itinerary

Days 1-4

Explore the beautiful Mother City

Arrive at Cape Town International Airport where you will be met and transferred to Welgelegen Guest House, set in Gardens - a leafy city neighbourhood at the foot of Table Mountain.

This is the perfect place to explore all that Cape Town has to offer. Head up Table Mountain on foot or via cable car and be mesmerised by the awe-inspiring views over the city; enjoy wine tasting in the city estates or head out to the panoramic Cape Winelands; lounge on the velvety beaches of Camps Bay or Clifton or go shopping at the ever-popular V&A Waterfront; head to historic Robben Island and Mandela's former prison via ferry, pay a visit to the penguin colony at Boulders Beach - the list is endless.

Return to the guesthouse after a hard day of sight-seeing and select from pampering therapies or recline in the beautiful courtyard next to the plunge pool.

Days 5-8

Enjoy golfing & waterslides

After an energising breakfast, set off via private transfer to Cape Town International Airport where you will catch your flight to OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg.

Once there you will transfer to the fun-filled Sun City resort - about 2.5 hours away - and check into The Cascades Hotel. Cascades is a calm retreat set at the heart of Africa's greatest, most outrageous holiday and entertainment resort.

There's just about every activity and sport you can think of: play a round of golf on Gary Player-designed courses, swim amid tumbling waves at The Valley of the Waves, choose your watersport on the lake, hit the casino, take in a show, go on game drives or a hot-air balloon ride in the next-door Pilanesberg National Park and make use of kids clubs to free up your time too.

Days 9-11

Exciting safari drives in Madikwe

Today you will transfer to Madikwe Safari Lodge, a classic luxury camp set in the Madikwe Private Game Reserve. It's perfect for families as not only is it malaria-free but it also offers activities especially designed for children so parents get to enjoy a safari too.

Madikwe's setting on the edge of the Kalahari means a pleasing blend of both familiar savannah animals and desert specialists; it's also Big 5 country and home to several of Africa's rarer carnivores including wild dog, cheetah and brown hyena.

Set off on expertly led early morning and late afternoon/early evening game drives in an open game-viewing vehicle and discover why this reserve is so popular with wildlife enthusiasts and birders alike.

Return to camp between drives and enjoy spectacular views of the Waterberg mountains. Unwind beside the swimming pool or put in a few lengths and work up an appetite before tucking into a delicious dinner under the stars.

Day 12

Say farewell to Madikwe

Leave Madikwe behind after a last breakfast and transfer back to OR Tambo Airport for your onward travel arrangements.
