Cape Town, Hermanus, Franschhoek / Family escape: ultimate South African adventure

To best experience the great outdoors and all she has to offer, there are few places that can rival the breadth of options a family can enjoy in South Africa.

This tour begins with the vibrant city of Cape Town; take time to ascend Table Mountain or swim with jackass penguins at Boulders Beach. Little ones will feel especially welcome at Cape Grace with activity packs on arrival, gingerbread decorating and African bedtime stories in the library. Next stop is a private nature reserve near to Hermanus; flower safaris, whale-watching and treasure hunts through the Milkwood Forest await you here. End your adventure at Babylonstoren, a unique 300 year farm surrounded by majestic mountains. We recommend visiting simply for the gardens alone – an incredible confection of foliage and flowers patrolled by the farm’s friendly ducks.
