Kids in Style family safari

This sample Kids in Style family safari is proving very popular, being both relaxing and yet visiting three contrasting areas.

The safari begins with unsurpassed game-viewing at the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve (Jaci’s Tree Lodge known for its specialist children’s safari programme) and continues to cosmopolitan Cape Town (Cape Royale Hotel close to the V&A Waterfront). It ends on a high point with whale-watching, horse-riding, beach-combing and many other activities at award-winning child-friendly Grootbos Nature Reserve. Luxury accommodation throughout.
