Cape Town and Kruger family safari

Combine the best that Cape Town and the Kruger National Park have to offer – beach and bush – for the ideal family holiday

This holiday will take you from the seaside city of Cape Town to the African bushveld of the Kruger National Park. You'll soak up the Mother City's attractions, from Table Mountain and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens to Cape Point and the African penguin colony at Boulder's Beach in Simon's Town. You'll have a day to explore on your own, or simply to laze the day away while the kids play on one of the Cape Peninsula's beautiful white beaches. For a complete change of pace, you'll fly to the Kruger National Park for a safari that could bring you face to face with the Big Five and other African animals. Special bush activities will be arranged for the kids at Tintswalo Lodge.

Manyeleti Private Game Reserve, Greater Kruger

You’ll be collected and driven to the airport in Cape Town to connect with your flight to the Kruger National Park. You'll be met at Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit and transferred by road to Tintswalo Safari Lodge in the Manyeleti Private Game Reserve concession adjoining Kruger, a drive that will take about three hours. The reserve is open to the Greater Kruger National Park on its fenceless eastern boundary, so animals roam freely between them. Depending on what time you arrive, you’ll be able to join the late-afternoon game drive.

Manyeleti Private Game Reserve, Greater Kruger

Again you can go on a game drive or bush walk knowing that the kids are happy and safe, participating in their own activities – perhaps a treasure hunt using tracks and other clues, or an introduction to the Small Five (leopard toad, ant lion, buffalo weaver, rhino beetle and elephant shrew). In the evening, the kids might enjoy star gazing with a ranger to teach them about the Southern Hemisphere's night skies. Overnight at Tintswalo Safari Lodge, with meals, drinks, kids' and game activities included.
