(c) South Africa Tourism What could be nicer than exploring exciting South Africa with your whole family? This program combines a safari with a visit to Cape Town and included in the program are fun activties for both children and adults. The itinerary is "stress-free" with as little time on the road as possible but with all the highlights South Africa has to offer.

Day 12: End of the trip

Day 1: Arrival Johannesburg
You arrive at the airport in Johannesburg and are met by one of our representatives who will give you your vouchers for the trip and your route description. There are no plans for the rest of the day so you can relax after your flight as tomorrow you head for the Madikwe Reserve.

Day 2, 3, 4: Madikwe Private Game Reserve
In the morning your hired car can be delivered to your hotel, and then set off for the Madikwe Private Game Reserve on the border with Botswana. This reserve is well known for its wild dog population. Together with the family you can enjoy a variety of safari activities. For the children there are special safari programmes where they can learn all about life in the bush. They can go tracking with the game ranger to discover the differences between the various spoors of the animals. Parents can also join in if they like or they can go on a game walk or game drive in an open 4x4 jeep. In the evening enjoy a family South African “braai”, a camp fire under the amazing canopy of stars.

Day 5, 6: Sun City
In the morning enjoy a last safari activity because from here you depart for Sun City.  Sun City was and still is a
great place for local South Africans to also take their children. It is a “city” with hotels, self catering apartments, swimming pools, casinos and plenty of sports facilities and activities on offer. The Palace of the Lost City has even got its own beach with artificial waves and the recreated ”Lost City“  is an attraction in itself.

Day 7 – 11: Cape Town
Today you drive back to Johannesburg to catch a flight through to Cape Town. On arrival at the airport a hired car will be waiting for you.
