Cape Town and the malaria-free Madikwe make this luxury family safari a hit with clients looking for the very best of South Africa. Ending with the amazing Morukuru in Madikwe, we would argue that a family safari does not get any better.

This family trip combines two thrilling locations – Camps Bay in Cape Town and the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. Both provide loads of exciting experiences for all the family to enjoy, from hiking up Lion’s Head mountain to looking out for all the big cats on a game drive! The properties we use are very exclusive, and your safari is totally tailored to your family. Due to age restrictions at the Camps Bay property, the trip is best suited to families with children aged 8 years and older; though no age restrictions apply where the property is booked exclusively for a group.

In Cape Town, you will stay at Sea Five Boutique Hotel. This is a very luxurious beach house, only 300 metres from the beautiful beach of Camps Bay! The second part of the trip takes you to Morukuru, a collection of three villas in Madikwe Game Reserve. Here, you will enjoy four nights in Owner’s House, a private retreat with its very own swimming pool!
