South Africa: Family Holiday
A World in One Country
Family holidays in South Africa
With its first world infrastructure, favourable exchange rate and varied attractions, South Africa is a great family holiday destination. Children of all ages, especially those of a sufficient age to walk and talk will find a visit to a game reserve or national park fascinating. It is important to note however that some private game reserves do not allow children, while others are very child-friendly, with self-catering family chalets and playgrounds. The Wild Coast, in the Eastern Cape, is a favourite with local families, and many of the hotels have special children's functions, playgrounds, children's dining areas and baby-sitting services. The Garden Route is also a great option if you're looking for a more exclusive experience, as there are a number of luxurious hotels and guesthouses that cater specifically for families, and many child-friendly attractions like a monkey park and walks with elephants. Dolphin and whale watching is another experience most children would never forget.
