Family Wildlife Adventures
OverviewThis package is perfect for families that would like to experience the best South Africa has to offer...

- Activities at the Elefun Centre at Sabi Sabi will amaze, educate and amuse children

Upon arrival in Cape Town, you will be met and transferred to the Table Bay Hotel conveniently located at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Built around an actual working harbor, the V & A Waterfront offers a number of activities for all the family to enjoy. Overnight on a Bed and Breakfast basis at Table Bay Hotel
After breakfast you will be met by your local English speaking driver-guide for your full day tour of the Cape Peninsula. Depart the hotel and flank the colder Atlantic Ocean en route to Hout Bay. Once a fishing community and now one of the most popular residential areas, the harbour still has a charm of days gone by. A chance to join the M.V "Circe" for a half hour cruise to "Seal Island" (at an additional cost) or for the not so adventurous, the fish market "Mariners Wharf" is a must. The tour now continues over the famous Chapman’s Peak drive – if open, with a 200 meter drop on one side and a 200 meter rise on the other, as we make our way south, following the Atlantic Ocean until we reach Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. Said to be the romantic meeting place of the two mighty oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, Sir Francis Drake the Explorer once called it "the fairest Cape that we saw in the whole circumference of the Globe". And rightly so, it must be the highlight of any visit to the Mother City, if not South Africa. Our optional lunch stop today is at the Fish Hoek Galley. We pass the naval base of Simonstown as we continue along the Indian Ocean, en route to see the Jackass penguin colony which has become well established at Boulders Beach near Simonstown. Our last stop of the day is at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, home of some 3 500 species of Southern African fauna and flora. We return to the hotel in the late afternoon, having seen some of the best the Cape has to offer. Overnight on a Bed and Breakfast basis at Table Bay Hotel
After breakfast enjoy a full day at leisure to explore the beautiful city of Cape Town. Maybe take a trip in the cable car up Table Mountain or a boat ride for a poignant visit to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for many years. In the summer months, maybe head for the white sand beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. Whatever else, you will not be at a loss for fun filled things for a family to enjoy! Overnight on a Bed and Breakfast basis at Table Bay Hotel
After breakfast you will be met and transferred to Cape Town International Airport. Upon arrival in Johannesburg you will connect with a scheduled charter to Sabi Sabi. Overnight on a fully inclusive basis at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge
Families with children have always been welcomed at Sabi Sabi's Bush Lodge. Now the family experience reaches a new level with the opening of the EleFun Centre, a fully fledged children's facility within the lodge environs which fosters children's awareness and appreciation of nature. The Elefun Centre will be filled with learning opportunities which all of Sabi Sabi's young visitors will have the chance to experience. Age-appropriate bushveld themed activities and 'edutainment' are designed and supervised by qualified staff, and will include interesting bushcraft subjects - animals, bugs and birds, tracking, map-reading - a long list of environmentally sensitive subjects that every child will find fascinating. Sabi Sabi epitomises Africa's magic. With no fences between the reserve and the Kruger Park, big game abounds, moving freely through this unspoiled part of the ancient African continent. The Reserve is blessed with a great biodiversity of habitat and wildlife giving an excellent chance of close encounters with the 'Big Five' - elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard - as well as wild dog and cheetah. With over 300 bird species, the reserve is a birdwatcher's delight. Overnight on a fully inclusive basis at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge
Spend another day in Africa's bush Safaris take place each morning and evening in open Land Rovers which drive through a wide variety of habitats, allowing visitors to view the vast interactions of the wild. After breakfast, guests on guided walking trails can experience the natural environment on foot. The dedicated, highly trained and experienced Rangers lead you to discover miracles of nature you may never have dreamed existed. Overnight on a fully inclusive basis at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge
After breakfast and an early game drive you will be transferred to Sabi Sabi Airstrip for your scheduled charter to Johannesburg.
