South Africa ticks all the boxes of a great kid-friendly vacation: rugged mountains, wildlife, thriving cities and beautiful beaches. It truly offers the best of all of these, especially for children who enjoy variety and can’t handle a weeklong safari. Rest assured, though, the quality safari options are endless here, even if only for a few days. As you move toward the coast, kids can dip their toes in the cool water as you relax on the beach, or perhaps you’ll even visit a penguin colony. For a city break and cultural experiences galore, we love Cape Town. Make time to visit to Robben Island — families can tour the jail where Nelson Mandela spent decades, sure to be a moving experience. Like the continent as a whole, South Africa offers lots of kid-friendly accommodation options, including luxury safari-based lodges and camps, beach resorts and city hotels sure to impress the whole family.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
Our offices are closed for the holiday. We will respond to your request on Monday, November 28th. If you are a Ciao Bambino client experiencing an emergency while traveling, please leave a voicemail on
