Create lifetime family memories with this classic South African itinerary. Bringing together the right accommodation in the right places, the tour opens with apartment-style living at the More Quarters Hotel where you have self-catering convenience at the heart of cosmopolitan Kloof Street. You are only a short distance from Table Mountain and the beaches of Camps Bay, and three nights here gives you plenty of time to book tours for the rest of the peninsula and take in the Boulders Beach penguins and Cape Point. Then you are whisked off to a beautifully restored manor house on the Spier estate, a strong contender for the most family-friendly wine estate in the Cape Winelands.
Settle down for two nights at the heart of the local ‘farm to table’ culinary experience. There’s a charming village atmosphere and children will love the activities and adventures here – the estate’s eagle sanctuary is always a big hit. Fly directly to the Kruger Park and one of its legendary private game reserves for a Big 5 safari. The Timbavati Reserve adjoins the Kruger but is privately managed, giving you the advantage of far fewer other visitors and safari activities not normally permitted in the Kruger, like bush walks and night game drives. Well known for its wildlife, this is one of the best places in Africa to see lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant plus a host of other familiar and not-so-familiar creatures.
Well-paced with all airport transfers and local flights included, this is a tour that covers all the bases. All accommodations are en suite, suitable for children of all ages, and your Timbabvati accommodation has a special family safari programme with age-appropriate activities if children are too young for game drives and walks.
