There are so many dream trips my husband and I would like to take. Most don’t include the terror twins but how incredible would it be to take them to Africa? Thrilled to see that this is becoming an option for those of us who are not among the jet set. Still a dream trip, but an attainable one…

Great Value Vacations recently released a new safari vacation directly aimed at parents. The South African Vacation Package: Discover Cape Town With Safari Day Trip includes a day trip to a malaria-free game park so you don’t have to worry about your kids getting shots or taking anti-malaria medications.

Other family friendly activities include organized activities (from group games to storytelling) which take place throughout the day; a teen lounge; cricket matches, treasure hunts, and more; a family friendly restaurant with high chairs and a children’s menu; babysitting services; child-size bathrobes and slippers; complimentary milk and cookies at bedtime; child-friendly toiletries; and children’s books, games, and more.
In addition to the full-day safari experience at the nearby malaria-free Aquila Private Game Reserve which is just under two hours from the hotel, this trip features a full-day tour of the Cape Peninsula with an English-speaking driver/guide; an optional boat excursion to Seal Island to view a colony of Cape Fur Seals; the opportunity to visit the Cape of Good Hope; a visit to the penguin colony on Boulder’s Beach; and much more.
