If you asked any child to imagine their dream destination, they’d probably end up describing South Africa. A busy, bustling city with plenty to see and do with a great big mountain right in the middle? Check. Up-close access to lions, elephants, and other zoo animals, without the zoo? Check. The chance to make new friends far away from home? Check and mate. Building an adventure that gives every member of the family exactly what they want can be a difficult task. South Africa makes it as easy as (bobotie) pie.

This family-focused adventure combines the cosmopolitan delights of Cape Town with ample time among South Africa’s wild creatures. Start things off at Table Mountain, the city’s iconic landmark, on a private tour that introduces you to its endemic plant and animal life as well as Bo-Kaap, the city’s vibrant Cape Malay community, before whiling away the afternoon at the museums and shops of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Later, get a personal perspective on life in the townships on a visit to several social development projects funded by Uthando, a responsible-tourism non-profit. After going penguin-spotting at Cape Point Peninsula, discover the bucolic pleasures of the Cape Winelands with a privately guided treasure hunt through the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve and a special family picnic. Last stop: the Madikwe Game Reserve. Here, you’ll have the chance to head out into the park on numerous guided game drives to track the Big Five and more than 8,000 animals representing 28 species, as well as take part in all sorts of kid-centric activities geared for any and all ages. The wild lands of South Africa beckon. Bring the whole pack. ... Show More »

Day 2: Cape Town

Beat the crowds and start the day early with your private guide by visiting Cape Town’s most iconic landmark, Table Mountain. One of the most spectacularly bio-diverse places on Earth, an estimated 1,500 unique species of plant-life are found on Table Mountain alone, many of which are endemic and found nowhere else on the planet. Ascend by cable car as the mist from the clouds open up to the main plateau while striking views of Cape Town come into crystal-clear focus. Now with a better understanding of the city’s layout, walk past Cape Town’s storied past as your guide recounts the colorful histories of the Houses of Parliament, the Castle of Good Hope (South Africa’s oldest building) and the well-tended Company Gardens. Bargain your way through the lively Greenmarket Square in search of souvenir while meeting local artisans along the way. As you enter another one of Cape Town’s famed stop at Bo-Kaap, learn how the Cape Malay community, with its cobbled streets and brightly colored houses became one of city’ most vibrant neighborhoods. There’s no better way of understanding local history than through your Capetonian guide. From here you have the choice of being dropped off at the V&A Waterfront to experience this landmark at your own pace, with its many shops, restaurants and pubs - or at your hotel to end the tour. Should you choose to visit the waterfront, please speak to your Destination Expert for a range of recommendations for lunch.

The V&A Waterfront is surely one of the top attractions in Cape Town no matter your age, interests or group dynamic. To name a few highlights, the Two Oceans Aquarium is home is an incredible array of exotic, seemingly other-worldly creatures from the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Behind the aquarium, a small colony of Cape fur seals are almost always found on the docks, ready and waiting to pose for your camera. Chavonnes Battery, Cape Town’s first fortification, is now a museum with artifacts from centuries past. At the heart of the waterfront lies the Clock Tower of Cape Town and for those wanting to learn more about the harbor's history, a stop at the SA Maritime Museum is a must. For your shopping needs, a visit to the Victoria Wharf Shopping Center is the perfect stopover for designer items and authentic Cape souvenirs.

Day 3: Cape Town

Uthando South Africa is a charity that supports a wide range of highly effective community projects across the country. In an effort to showcase their initiatives and to offer a glimpse into the work being done to uplift disadvantaged communities, Uthando offers daily excursions to visit the sprawling townships around Cape Town where their programs are underway. On this outing, you will visit at least three of the social development projects being funded through Uthando. These visits offer a unique and authentic introduction to the social problems confronting so many South Africans while also illustrating the innovative and inspirational ways in which these issues are being overcome. Importantly, the projects are not treated as tourist attractions and the tours are designed to educate, inform and inspire while also respecting the dignity and privacy of the people affected. The projects are, after all, places where people work and live. At the end of your community experience, you will be dropped off at your hotel. It is worth noting that a portion of your tour price goes directly to Uthando charities.

Day 4: Cape Town

The Cape Peninsula is a complete contrast to cosmopolitan Cape Town. With its wild national parks, artistic bohemian seaside villages and working fishing harbors, this day is focused on embracing the locals and spending as much time out of the vehicle as possible. With your specialist guide, head to your first stop – Cape Town’s coolest coffee at Muizenberg’s Surfers Corner, the epicenter of South Africa’s surf culture. From here it’s off to Kalk Bay to explore the harbor and meet the jovial, often entertaining members of the fishing community. Browse bohemian art shops and perhaps take a short hike through the fairy-like Milkwood forests; the day will be curated to your wishes as it progresses with the help of your guide. Head to Simon’s Town to find our rogue penguins on a secret beach that’s typically only accessible to locals. Weather permitting, you’ll be invited to snorkel or use stand-up paddle-boards to gain a unique perspective of the penguins. After visiting Cape Point, venture deeper into the Peninsula and explore deserted wild beaches, secret coves, rock pools and shipwreck-strewn hiking trails away from the tourist crowds. This part of the Table Mountain National Park is home to ostrich, baboons, tortoises and mountain zebra, so be sure to have your camera ready to capture photos of these often elusive animals. The return journey along the Atlantic coast offers countless lookouts, hidden cafes and watering holes that are chock full of character. You’ll experience this firsthand when you stop for a beer tasting at a local surfer hang-out, the final stop before being returned to your hotel after an active day in the Cape Peninsula.

No tour of Cape Town is complete without trying the city's local eats and treats. Today, enjoy a casual lunch option where the food-quality is high and the vibe is relaxed. Cafes, fish & chips, market stalls and artisanal food offerings with seasonal produce are to be expected, served with unpolished but genuine service. Please note: local drinks are included during your lunch experiences however anything over and above the local soft drinks, house wines and beer will be at additional cost. For alternative lunch options, please speak to your Destination Expert to learn more.

Day 5: Cape Town

Bond as a family with the brilliant Cape Winelands as a backdrop on this private and tailor-made outing. Designed to create memories your kids will talk about to for years to come while also providing you with the full Winelands experience, begin the day with a treasure hunt through the scenic Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, situated in the Franschhoek Mountains. Affording spectacular views over the Franschhoek Valley, the reserve is home to small animals, fynbos and a diversity of plant life. The quest leads to Breakfast Rock (less than a leisurely mile into the reserve) where juice and delicious home-baked treats are served. The next stop is a charming boutique estate renowned for its sparkling wines. From here, the resident winemaker travels to Champagne every year, and - glass of bubbles in hand - it is clear that his time is well spent. While parents enjoy a wine-tasting, kids have their own, specialized iced-tea tasting, never left out for a moment. You will also explore the charming town of Franschhoek with its French Hugenot origins – and will have the option to participate in active hiking and biking which is ideal for older kids. Then it’s on to a family-friendly wine estate where family is at the heart of all things, and where little explorers are not only warmly welcomed but are invited to treat their farms as a playground. This is a world where fountains have been specially designed for cooling off after a run through the vines, and milk and cookie tastings are done in a cellar courtyard. In the afternoon, old wine estate with ancient cobweb-filled cellars reveal their secrets to wine aficionados and young imaginations alike. Taste the flavors and vintages of the region while kids are entertained by ghost stories, play in magical surrounds and wander through charmed gardens.

In a place like Cape Town, the surrounding winelands or the Cape Peninsula, nothing beats a picnic. Local flavors and generous portions tailored to your liking are on the highly-personalized menu today; ideal if the weather plays ball and you want to take advantage of the stunning outdoor vistas. Please note: local drinks are included during your lunch experiences however anything over and above the local soft drinks, house wines and beer will be at additional cost. For alternative lunch options, please speak to your Destination Expert to learn more.

Day 7: Madikwe Game Reserve

Often parents have to compromise their family time in favor of an exclusive bush getaway as many luxury lodges do not cater for children. However, Tuningi has launched its kids’ programs to cater for family getaways, which entails a number of ‘firsts’ in bush activities.  Children over five years are able to enjoy the usual daily game drives along with experienced rangers, their parents and other guests, while children below five years old are issued with a workbook and taken out on their own, for shorter ‘bumbles’. 

While parents enjoy the early morning game drives, they can be assured that if their children remain behind, they are looked after by the lodge’s professional child minders until they wake, after which they are taken to the main lodge for breakfast. All children under the age of five will be taken on short ‘kiddies bumbles’ after breakfast in the mornings. 

Older children are issued with an activity book where they can record sightings and animal behavior every day. Lots of toys, lego, coloring books and puzzles are available any time of the day, while the lodge managers host formal activities every day. 

During afternoon game drives, treasure hunts for children can be arranged and an educational talk on the items found is given by a knowledgeable staff member. In the evenings, children can eat dinner in their room or they can enjoy an interactive dinner with a chef, who allows them to make their own foodie treats. On boma evenings children can make their own bread on sticks, or toast marshmallows on the fire. 

Formal activities include

  • Treasure hunts for natural items collected from the bush such as bones, feathers, nests, eggs, etc.
  • T-shirt painting with animal stencils
  • Clay building competitions
  • Tracing of tracks around the waterhole

 

During this afternoon game drive you’ll understand why the Madikwe Game Reserve is a testimony to an enlightened conservation plan which has created an exceptional environment for wildlife to thrive. To enter Madikwe is to stand at the very threshold of African wilderness. This is a near-perfect ecological environment where every plant, animal, and insect forms an essential part of an intricate web of survival, the epitome of the phrase “Circle of Life.”  Here, life and death are one and a necessity for the continued existence of this naturally occurring phenomenon that has been unchanged in Africa for millions of years.

Day 8: Madikwe Game Reserve

Embark on an early morning game drive with your expert ranger. Madikwe is known for its diverse wildlife species as a result from the effort put forth in the 90's to encourage conservation with a program named "Operation Phoenix". This epic project is to this day one of the largest game translocation exercises ever undertaken in the world. More than 8,000 animals of 28 species have been released into the Madikwe Game Reserve including elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, cheetah, wild dog, spotted hyena, giraffe, antelope and other various herbivores. You’ll be out on the reserve for a few hours before returning to the lodge before lunch.
