There is great accommodation for families across South Africa, from large or boutique hotels in the major cities to camping and lodges inside, and on the border of National Parks and Reserves. The self-catering camps are great for families, offering the opportunity to eat whatever you like, whenever you like. However there are also some brilliant lodges out there that provide fantastic child facilities. There are a variety of stunning wine routes that you can follow where the accommodation is mainly in Cape Dutch farm houses, with swimming pools and a myriad of exciting activities to keep young ones entertained.
After a wildlife packed safari or spectacular tour of the wilderness, whether it be desert or snow topped mountains, there are some wonderful beach areas to finish your holiday. The warm Indian Ocean off the south coast or the cooler Atlantic, just away from Cape Town are beautiful places to take a break and excitedly discuss what you have seen and done during your South African Safari. Or, on the opposite end of the scale, there are lots of theme parks and water parks within South Africa for a more thrilling end to your journey!
South Africa is the perfect spot for that family safari, great value for money, with all the beauty and wildlife you could expect from an African location, yet the ease of travel, high health standards and family welcoming accommodation that one needs.
Cuisine is easy for those young ones to palate and the roads and transport have been massively upgraded since the World Cup in 2010, meaning a self-drive is an easy and flexible option.
