Itinerary Description:

Begin your luxury South Africa family safari in the endless Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, one of the highest guest-to-land ratio regions in South Africa, and Kwandwe Ecca Lodge, a funky-meets-modern Big Five safari destination for both the young and the young at heart. Spend three days on this luxury South Africa safari enjoying twice-daily game drives, afternoon tea by the pool, and romantic sundowners while the children entertain themselves with plenteous chaperoned activities such as a Bugs & Bones ecology walk and a Chefs-In-Training cooking lesson.

Next, venture to the nostalgic country luxury of the Tatler award-winning Kurland Hotel & Spa in Plettenberg, perfect for your South Africa family safari. Situated on a beautiful time-absent private estate within the Tsitsikamma Nature Reserve, Kurland boasts an expansive never-be-bored menu of activities for all ages. Experience equestrian rides, forest walks, spa treatments, sandy beaches, and water sports while the children partake in complimentary Shetland pony rides, cooking classes in the Children-Only Dining Conservatory, and personal play time in their private toy-and-book furnished lofts. The hotel also features its own internationally renowned championship polo grounds, the site of one of the ten best polo matches in the world. The accompanying stables and tuition center is ideal for polo enthusiasts wising to learn the sport or simply marvel at the professionals.

A scenic road transfer on your luxury South Africa family safari leads you on to Hermanus and Grootbos Forest Lodge overlooking the breathtaking Walker Bay. During your three-day stay, take advantage of the Flynbos, Pincushion, and Protea Nature Trails through the Milkwood Ancient Forest, as well as horseback riding along the beach. Children will delight in feeding the animals and private riding lessons, or families may opt to stay together for thrilling beach excursions and boat trips to visit the resident seals, penguins, and the Southern Right Whale.

Conclude your luxury South Africa family safari in Cape Town at Cape Grace, perfectly poised against the iconic V&A Waterfront. Travel to Cape Point and the peninsula along the Coast Road, described as one of the most beautiful drives in the world, and explore the surrounding Winelands for tastes of the crisp white and classic French-style red wines the region is famous for producing. While in Paarl, embark on a short horseback ride for panoramic views of the Wellington and Drakenstein Mountains and estates. Afterward, drink in the atmosphere of the charming French colonial town of Franschhoek, strolling by galleries, boutiques, antique shops, bistros, and cafes—the perfect punctuation to your South African holiday.
