Your Itinerary

4 nights in Cape Town

A family holiday in Cape Town is all about exploring the big attractions, discovering the lesser-known gems and becoming immersed in authentic experiences. Soak in the views from the summit of Table Mountain, from the drive along Chapman’s Peak and at Cape Point, where two oceans meet. Kayak among the resident penguins of Boulders Beach, watch for sharks (and possibly whales) from Boyes Drive and wander among the famous quays and shops of the V&A Waterfront.

This is no cookie-cutter Cape Town experience. Even your accommodation at the Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel speaks to the quirky eccentricity of the city. Each of the 15 rooms is unique; boldly cheeky but blanketed in luxury. It’s the kind of place that feels just like home, only amplified.


From ocean-fresh fish to Cape Malay flavours and delicious street food, Cape Town promises a feast for the whole family.

A spectacular end to your Southern African family safari, witness one of the great wonders of nature: the Victoria Falls. Discover the majesty of “The Smoke That Thunders” from your 5-star accommodation at the Victoria Falls Hotel.

Unwind in the cool shade of your verandah or sip a cocktail at sunset while admiring the views across the Zambezi River before ending your day with an unforgettable dinner aboard the luxurious Royal Livingstone Express.

A guided tour of the Victoria Falls will take you through a lush rainforest and along scenic footpaths to gaze into the depths of the craggy Batoka Gorge and marvel through the misted rainbows at the spectacle of the Zambezi River roaring into the chasm below.


Enjoy family dining at the hotel in a colonial-style setting overlooking pristine lawns and a sparkling swimming pool.
