South Africa Family Safari Tours
Create memorable moments on a bespoke South Africa family safari
We can’t really tell you enough how South Africa is the perfect destination for a family trip.
With such a spoiling choice of locations, landscapes that beg to be explored, and a dizzying breadth of activities to decide upon; we can help you create a trip that not only matches the make-up of your family (be it travelling with toddlers, grandparents or teenagers) but that every member gets to enjoy it with all the ease, comfort and personal service you’re looking for.
We have extensive experience in dealing with family holidays and your personal safari designer will shoulder the detailed planning and a personal itinerary organised to the highest standards. From effortless transfers between all your chosen lodgings, baby-sitter services, restaurant recommendations and bookings, to a diplomatic balance of activities and relaxation that will keep everyone entertained and superb local guides to look after you every step of the way.
Be it river-rafting on the Tugela, horse-riding and whale-watching on the Garden Route, perhaps private game drives and a remote safari villa just for your family. We can get you to the wildest corners of the Kalahari, the best beach resorts on the Capes and all the close-up encounters with nature’s mighty kingdom as you want.
See our example family trips below, or we can help to design one from scratch.
No destination brings a family together like South Africa! World class service, accommodation and entertainment for all ages and interests makes South Africa a truly magical experience.

The tour and safari guides were all so knowledgeable and genuinely eager to tell their stories of the the fabulous…
Jacada planned for our adult family a trip of a lifetime to Africa! From stepping off our flight to waving goodbye after security they assisted us in every way. The Lodges, Hotels and Camps the Jacada representative Jody helped us select were over the top, beyond our expectations. We started and ended in SA with the bulk of our trip…
Jacada did an amazing job for us for our trip to South Africa. Planned our trip with us every step of the way! Would certainly use them again.
Our entire trip was AMAZING from start to finish!!! We had very timely and professional guides. Every hotel was top notch and exceeded our expectations. I couldn’t have even come close to planning something like this on my own. I will definitely be reaching out to Jacada for our next trip!!!
Just back from an absolutely wonderful 12-day honeymoon to South Africa, planned and executed by Emily and Angela at Jacada.

We are "explore places by mouth" people and…
