Never a dull moment on this family adventure holiday on the South Africa coastline. Starting in the incredible Addo Elephant Park in the East we have 2 game drives seeing these great lumbering creatures before travelling to Plettenberg Bay. Two days here gives us some fabulous options of visiting ‘Monkey Land', a Raptor rehabilitation centre or an elephant sanctuary. Of course we could just relax on the beach! It's then to Oudtshoorn to the Ostrich farm, a Meerkat tour, and in Hermanus we can go whale watching. The accommodation throughout the holiday is well presented, most having swimming or dip pools available. We round off with a couple of days in Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula, including a boat tour to seal island and the truly mesmeric penguins at Simon's Town. This holiday is awesome and just superb for families who love wildlife.
Is this holiday for you?
Suitable for children from 8 yrs old
This family adventure holiday travels from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town along approximately 500miles of the Garden Route on the coast of South Africa. We travel this distance in manageable sizes, but there are a couple of drives which are 3-5 hrs long and you should be prepared for this. It also includes a number of (exciting!) game drives which are often on rough dirt roads. Ther is also a high wildlife viewing content, and the holiday is very suitable for animal lovers. On the meerkat tour you will be expected to sit watching these quietly for approx 2 hours. All activities, including the canoeing are suitable for children and beginners. There are many optional activities available. If you wish to take part in any of the water based activities you must be able to swim. All accommodation is of a good quality and chosen for families, many of which have swimming pools.
