South Africa Family Travels

South Africa is one of our favourite places to travel with kids. It is vast with an incredible variety of landscapes and wildlife. It is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful with the sun-soaked white sandy beaches of Cape Town overlooked by Table Mountain, the soaring peaks of the lush green wine regions, the rugged cliffs and valleys of the Drakensberg and the dry desert landscapes of the Karoo. With overnight flights from the UK and a 2 hour time difference meaning minimal jet-lag, it is definitely a firm favourite with many families.
