Family Self-Drive South Africa: Cape to Kruger - 15 Days

Family safari Table Mountain, Cape Town
Family holiday in Kruger

"Our family had the very best time on this holiday - it had something for everyone and we just loved how independent we could be!"

Cape Town and Kruger are two of South Africa’s must-see holiday destinations! Enjoy these two icons which offer so much for all members of the family. Start in the ‘Mother City’ on Africa’s south-western tip, and spend your days discovering the sights and sounds of this cosmopolitan city including the iconic Table Mountain. Then pick up your rental vehicle and explore further - Cape Point and the penguins of Boulders Beach, the stunning Cape Coast and whales (in season) of Hermanus as well as the wineries of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. From Cape Town fly directly to Mpumalanga’s Panorama Route for breathtaking vistas, scenic waterfalls and adventure activities. Finally it's time to explore the amazing Kruger National Park and encounter its vast array of wildlife. This is a Travel Africa favourite and we are sure your family will have an incredible time doing your own self-drive games drives or being guided during a lodge stay.

Choose between two accommodation grades - Standard or Upgrade. Alternatively mix and match accommodation from each grade to create your perfect holiday. Interactive itineraries for each accommodation grade can be viewed below.

A perfect holiday the whole family will enjoy.

Three full days to explore the charm and history of one of the most beautiful and cosmopolitan cities of the world. Take the cable car or walk up Table Mountain, visit the colourful Malay quarter or meander through the wonderful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Browse through the vibrant Greenmarket Square or visit the former political prison of Nelson Mandela – Robben Island. When you want to range further, take one of the finest coastal drives in Africa to the Cape of Good Hope.
