The classic
city and safari duo

Like cookies and cream or Timon and Pumbaa, some things are just better when they are together.

Described by Sir Francis Drake as ‘the fairest cape in all the world’, the vibrant city of Cape Town is the starting point for a jam-packed five days, ensuring plenty of moments to pursue pastimes to please the whole clan. Children lead seaside explorations by bike and hear stories of the Mother City’s history before setting off on garden treasure hunts and penguin spotting. While downtime comes in the form of kid-friendly sundowners and a stop at a local farm village for homemade ice cream.

Then, it’s into the wilderness for a stay in South Africa’s reserves to spot some of the continent's most iconic animals. Days here are spent indulging in bush picnics, nature walks and game drives, and give little ones the chance to learn how to track wildlife and make casts of their footprints. By evening, come together to enjoy local dishes, fire pit stories and stargazing before retiring to bed to snuggle down to the ambient orchestra outside.
