​South Africa’s biggest attractions are truly wild, where safari is the name of the game. There surely can’t be anything any more memorable or exciting for youngsters (or adults) than seeing the Big Five in the bush.

Taking the plunge and travelling on safari with children can be daunting, but being on the same time zone as the UK, and with a number of malaria-free options to choose from, it's an ideal destination for a truly wild getaway, and one that the whole family is bound to love.

And there’s so much more besides. As a developed country, it’s easy to get around and has a fascinating choice of other things to see: from cool, cosmopolitan Cape Town to exploring the magical sights and sounds of the Garden Route (not to mention the epic marine safaris too).


  • Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge, Madikwe Game Reserve

    The African bush is without doubt a unique and exciting playground for youngsters, and after a stay at Madikwe Hills, they’ll leave enlightened. The Junior Ranger programme is a must-do experience where kids will enjoy a wide range of hands-on, educational activities so all generations can enjoy the wonders of the African bush.

  • One&Only Cape Town

    At the heart of the vibrant V&A Waterfront, the KidsOnly club here is exceptional. Activities – as with all One&Only experiences – provide a real sense of place and include safari- and ocean-themed days, as well as supervised excursions.


    There's everything from cheetah and eagle encounters, to big screen movies, or burning off some of their boundless energy at City Rock, a safe but challenging indoor climbing centre, complete with a Cool Runnings toboggan on steel tracks, sandboarding on dunes, indoor karting, ice skating and bowling.
