South Africa is one of the most popular safari holiday destinations in Africa. It is particularly popular amongst families and I often referred to as the world in one country. It is geographically and culturally one of the most diverse places on earth and Cape Town is one of the most scenically beautiful cities you will ever see. South Africa also offers great value for money and the quality of accommodation is superb. The safari lodges and camps tend to cater for those looking for an authentic safari experience without compromising on luxury. The quality of guiding is excellent and the food competes with the top class establishments of Europe.
South Africa is popular amongst families as it has malaria free Big 5 game reserves that cater for children of all ages. The lodges has specially designed activities for kids that include bush tracking, bush cooking, arts and crafts, tribal dancing, horse riding and many other fun things to do.
South Africa’s coastline is wild and well protected from development. There are no big hotels so your beach experience will be fairly private wherever you go. The Indian Ocean waters are clean and warm and the conditions for swimming and surfing are good. It is also a great place for whale watching and shark cage diving.
South Africa is also close to the island paradise of Mauritius which is another great family destination.
