Recommended highlights

CAPE TOWN With golden beaches, a cosmopolitan vibe and majestic views from Table Mountain, travellers heading to South Africa make a beeline to Cape Town with good reason. To explore it all, we suggest a stay at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, located right on the harbourfront.

SUN CITY An immense playground for families, everything here is at your doorstep. Spend a day at the thrilling Valley of Waves water park; learn how to waterski at Waterworld; practise your swing at the 18-hole golf courses or enjoy a movie night at the cinema. Bordering Pilanesberg National Park, the resort is crowned by The Palace, a majestic fairytale hotel with views of the whole resort from the King’s Tower.

MADIKWE GAME RESERVE Perfect for a safari with younger guests, Madikwe Game Reserve is home to the Big Five – elephant, lion, rhino, Cape buffalo and leopard, as well as the endangered African wild dog – and it is malaria-free.

FAMILY With plenty of sights and activities to keep kids entertained, this is an ideal itinerary for families. In Cape Town, younger travellers will be delighted by Boulders Beach’s resident penguins and the impressive cable car ride as they teeter up to Table Mountain. Sun City offers oodles of fun within one giant complex, including a kids’ camp for ages 5-12 and a water theme park, while in Madikwe you can enjoy a family-friendly safari with excellent wildlife viewing.
