Family Safari and Mozambique Beach Holiday

From $11,514.00 p/person

It’s family fun under the African sun on this 10-day Southern Africa safari!

Kicking off in Cape Town, the Mother City promises to keep everyone in the family smiling. Explore the city’s famous attractions such as Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront and Cape Point. Off the tourist-track, your family adventure will take you paddling with penguins, shark watching (from a safe distance!) and into the West Coast to visit the quaint town of Darling.

Next, you’ll head to the Kruger National Park for a Big Five safari. Your family-friendly accommodation at Ulusaba Rock Lodge is situated on a hilltop, offering uninterrupted views of the South African bushveld. Enjoy thrilling wildlife encounters on daily game drives, bush walks, or hang out together at the sparkling pool. Wildlife roams freely here, so you may get lucky and watch the Big Five from the privacy of your own room! From the Kruger Park, you’ll fly to Benguerra Island in Mozambique to spend a few days on an unspoilt island featuring deserted beaches of pure white sand, sparkling turquoise seas, sunny days and star-studded nights.

Ride the cable car to the summit of Table Mountain, or ride the big wheel at the V&A Waterfront. Marvel at gamboling seals in Kalk Bay Harbour, soak in the views from Cape Point, and kayak among the resident penguins of Boulders Beach.


Discover family dining with a difference over fine cuisine at La Colombe, experiential dining at The Test Kitchen, or the home-grown flavours

For the last leg of your family safari, head to your own private island in Mozambique to make magical memories. Children and teens at Azura Benguerra Island are spoilt for choice with a host of activities. Supervised by Azura’s guides and activity coordinators, you can enjoy some me-time while your kids seek out interesting marine life above and below the water, search for pansy shells on an island that appears at low tide, experience cultural encounters, climb dunes, look for crocodiles (from a safe distance), taste the island’s fruits and learn a new skill or two.


Sit down for a private family dinner on the beach, surrounded by candles arranged in the sand. Upgrade to a seafood barbecue and the staff will cook fresh seafood in front of you while you sit under African skies!
