INDIVIDUAL TRAVEL - FAMILY TOURS

 

Southern Africa has several key family holiday features for you and your kids: great weather; child friendly accommodation establishments to suit all budgets; inspiring and educational activities; magnificent scenery and, of course, wildlife. Mix these together, and you have the recipe for the perfect family holiday of a lifetime.

 

Experiences:

 

Visit the Two Oceans Aquarium 

The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.

 

Visit the Touch Pool where the kids will be able to touch and feel a variety of anemones, sea urchins and seaweeds and discover creatures too minute for the naked eye under the Microscope

Two unique exhibits include acrylic magnifiers in the design and offer enlarged and sometimes quirky views of the inhabitants

 

The Holcim Centre allows children (and those who are young at heart!) to express their experiences of the Aquarium through drawing, painting and clay modelling. Daily puppet shows are a treat for everyone as Peter the Penguin invites you to participate in song and dance.

 

Tractor Ride, Cheese and Strawberry picking in the Cape Winelands

A fun day out for the whole family. The day starts with a transfer to Siedelberg Wine Estate where mom and dad has the opportunity to sample some of the award winning wine at this estate whilst kids will be able to fly kites which we include for them on the day. From Siedelberg make your way via a tractor ride through the vineyards to Fairview Wine Estate where everyone can sample some of the 25 different cheeses produce on this estate. The kids will be able to get a closer look at one of the most common farm animals, the goat. After a light lunch in the Goatshed restaurant travel to a local farm for a fantastic time enjoying the outdoors, sun and hand picking juicy strawberries.

 

Encounters with Cheetahs

During a fascinating visit to the Cheetah Centres at either Spier Wine Estate or De Wildt Cheetah Project you will learn firsthand about the important work they are doing there. In addition to their on-going work with cheetahs, the center breeds other endangered species, including wild dog, brown hyena, serval, suni antelope and vultures.You’ll go behind the scenes for an insider’s look at their work, learning about the challenges of breeding in captivity and the success rates for rehabilitation and re-entry into the wild. You’ll also have an opportunity to cuddle with one of the Ambassador (Tame) Cheetahs.

 

Wildlife Safari Experience

Children of a sufficient age to walk and talk and communicate with ease will find a visit to a game reserve or national park fascinating. Many of the private game reserves do not allow children, but some particularly welcome them. Bear in mind that the main game viewing destinations are in malarial areas, where it is risky for young children and pregnant women, so you might want to stick to the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and North West Province reserves.

 

A visit to a child friendly game lodge which is great fun and special game drives are conducted just for the kids. Educational bush walks in specially selected areas are conducted and kids have the opportunity to collect insects, learn about the medicinal uses of plants and identify animal spoor under the watchful eye of the professional ranger and tracker. Back at the lodge, kids are also entertained with treasure hunts, arts and crafts activities. We provide kids with their own backpacks which are filled with a wildlife activity booklet, a deputy ranger sticker badge and certificate, (which is signed off by their personal ranger) as well as a special T-shirt.
