South Africa Family Safari

Days 1, 2, 3 and 4 - Cape Town

Cape Town is one of the most scenically beautiful cities in the world, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and crossed by mountains, it really does have it all. Stanley Safaris has partnered with some of the best guides in the city so you can spend your days exploring Cape Town and surrounding Winelands in a unique way, specifically tailored to your interests. Whether you are interested in the arts, the history of South Africa, the vibrant food scene, being active, or simply want to explore a variety of wine farms and sample the incredible wines, we can make that all happen. Cape Town is our home, this is what we live and breathe each day, so we know the secret little spots away from the crowds.

With so much on offer for families, Cape Town is perfect for kids of all ages. Wander around the bustling V&A Waterfront, go swimming with penguins on Boulders Beach, head out on sea kayaks with dolphins and seals, hike up Lion’s Head or Table Mountain – Cape Town really does have it all.

Days 5 and 6 - Grootbos

​From Cape Town head along the coast to Grootbos, just north of Hermanus, the Whale watching capital of the world. Grotbos is a private reserve north of Hermanus on the famous Whale Coast of South Africa. Situated in a unique flora kingdom, Grotbos is a safari with a difference. Explore the reserve and learn more about the unique flora of the Fynbos region and understand why it is so important to preserve these unique ecosystems. From Grotbos you can explore the nearby coast on whale-watching excursions or for the more adventurous, head further north to Gansbaai for Great White Shark diving.

Days 7, 8 and 9 - Sabi Sands Game Reserve

From Cape Town you fly to the Sabi Sands where you will be met by your guide for a safari in the world-famous Sabi Sands, bordering the Kruger National Park. The Sabi Sands shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, allowing the free movement of wildlife and therefore ensuring a rich wildlife experience. The Sabi Sands is renowned as one of the best places in Africa to see the Big Five. From our lodge enjoy morning, afternoon, and night game drives as well as walking safaris in search of the wildlife of the Sabi Sands. The Sabi Sands is world famous for its leopard sightings. Leopards are traditionally shy, but for some reason the leopards of the Sabi Sands are more relaxed around vehicles, allowing guests unique opportunities to see them day and night. The Sabi Sands is also home to cheetahs, wild dogs, and other general animals.
