Day 1 – 5
Spend the first five nights in Cape Town, with some time to settle in and visit the world famous attractions Cape Town has to offer: Table Mountain, Cape Point, the penguin colony at Boulders Beach, horse riding or the Aquarium. Fully serviced child friendly apartments in the heart of the V&A Waterfront offer space, privacy and flexibility.
Day 6 & 7
The Winelands is home to magnificent mountain scenery as well as some outstanding wine farms. Spend your days enjoying a laid back picnic under the trees, while the children play in the mountain stream, explore the area by mountain bike, visit Butterfly world or do a chocolate tasting at Franschhoek’s chocolatier.
Day 8 – 11
A scenic drive east along the Garden Route brings you to another of South Africa’s premier holiday destinations, Plettenberg Bay. Activities include the Elephant Sanctuary, Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, dolphin and whale spotting boat cruises, canopy top tours or simply enjoy time on the beach. Laird’s Lodge welcomes children of all ages and organizes babysitting, special turn downs and lots more making your stay here nothing short of magical.
Day 12 – 13
River Bend in the malaria free Addo Elephant National Park is probably the ultimate family safari destination. Needs of adults and children alike are catered for without sacrificing the authentic safari experience in a ‘Big Five’ area known for spectacular elephant sightings.
After a final early morning game drive drop your hired car off at nearby Port Elizabeth and board a flight home.
