South Africa is a rainbow nation with hospitality at its finest and is the perfect luxurious family adventure you have been waiting for. From its rich wildlife, arts & culture, cuisine, history, and wellness, South Africa has something that each member of the family would appreciate. As you book off your 2 weeks off to jet set to the Southern tip of the African continent, be sure to plan it with the help of a travel professional so that all of the must-see and must-do sites are not missed and you don't leave disappointed.
South Africa is known for the iconic Nelson Mandela, the township of Soweto in Johannesburg, and the Zulu nation territory. But more notably, what is a trip to South Africa without a safari?
South Africa has some of the best world-renowned safari tours for families and groups looking to experience "The Big 5" (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo), "The Little 5" (the Elephant Shrew, Ant Lion, Rhinoceros Beetle, Buffalo Weaver, and Leopard Tortoise), and other wildlife such as cheetahs, zebras, hippos, alligators, and many varieties of birds.
An African Safari trip is great for all family members who are either looking for adventure or relaxation. For adventure, you can do a game tour where you will be upfront with the animals. You can enjoy a spa day at the resort where you can enjoy a nice massage. If you and your family would like a camp-style trip, there are many luxury tents within or nearby the safaris ready and willing to curate an experience of a lifetime.
The best part about the rainbow nation is how close it is to various countries that have some of the wonders of the world such as Victoria Falls in Zambia. Or you can visit Namibia and witness the desert meet the ocean. Each country nearby has the safety and luxury you can envision for your net adventure.
Working with Tovell Travel, you can be guaranteed to work with the best tour operators that will meet your specific needs such as hotel transfers, transportation, off-the-beaten-path tours, and safety information.
For our South African adventures, we recommend a 10- 14 day experience. This will allow you to take your time to experience the sites at leisure and if you chose to visit nearby countries such as Zimbabwe, Namibia, or Botswana, they can easily be accommodated into your itinerary.
