The Ideal Family Vacation in SA starts in a Family-Friendly Villa in Cape Town
You’d be hard pressed to find better ‘family vacation’ opportunities than sunny South Africa with its beaches, game reserves, adventure activities, magnificent scenery and extraordinarily attractive exchange rate. South Africa offers all this for a steal at the best of times, but it’s even better than ever now, with the Rand falling rapidly against the Dollar and the Pound (and every other currency). When you have family in tow and you want to make the most of your holiday, ‘cheap’ is great – but in SA these days that doesn’t mean compromise on luxury and amenities at all!
Cape Town offers a huge variety of luxury but family-friendly villa rentals. Following are two enticing examples to inspire you to book those tickets and surprise the kids with tickets to a holiday they will never forget in our beautiful country – starting in SA’s favourite city!
