Compared to other buildings, The Habit is unique in that it was once home to Catholic nuns and has since been changed into a guest house. Its surrounded by serene gardens - ideal for children to play in. Add this to original wooden floors, pressed ceilings and beds dressed in pure linen and you may feel like you don’t want to leave. If you wish to do your own thing there are two self-catering cottages which are perfect for a family sharing. Plan your family and kid friendly safaris right now.

The Karoo Art Hotel


For something a little different, The Karoo Art Hotel is a must. Situated only 2,5 hours from Cape Town in the quaint town of Barrydale, a stay here is an experience for the whole family. The hotel is nestled in the valley of the Langeberg Mountains with access to various activities and tourist attractions in and around the area. To top it off, The Karoo Art Hotel also offers parents some reprieve with on-site child-minding services.
