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.

When to go

Cape Town and along the Garden Route are great to visit any time of year, but early summer when the winds drops are particularly pleasant. If you're visiting for safari, the dry winter months are often considered the best but the wetter summer months bring full waterholes, lush bushveld and lots of newborn animals.
