Cape Town Family Safari Escape in South Africa - Bushmans Kloof Resort

Bushman's Kloof Reserve & Wellness Retreat You can’t beat Cape Town for a perfect mix of stunning landscapes, culture, history and a world-class food and wine scene – but, what’s in it for your kids, really? There’s more than enough in Cape Town to fill two or three action packed days for your family. But adding a few days of outdoor discoveries (for them) and an opportunity to relax (for you) is a great way to round out your Cape Town family vacation.  Start Your Adventure with 3 Days in Cape Town Two or three days in Cape Town will allow you to ride the cable car up to the top of Table Mountain, take a ferry to historic Robben Island,  check out the memorabilia of District 6 Museum, and enjoy the Victoria and Albert Waterfront’s Two Oceans Aquarium and Springbok Experience Rugby Museum, just to name a few.

Luangwa Valley Walking Safaris in Zambia, Southern Africa

  Luangwa Valley Walking Safaris in Zambia, Southern Africa No matter where you go – in urban or wilder settings – the seasoned traveler knows you can only get to really know your surroundings by walking them:  not just to get your bearings, but to discover the sights, sounds and smells that are unique to that place. Although four-wheel-drive safari vehicles are inextricably linked to the image of the classic African safari, many safari-goers are taking their adventure to another level entirely by selecting a destination and camps which have perfected the art of the walking safari. Beyond connecting with the wilderness you’ve traveled so far to see, you have the added advantage of staying active on your vacation. One of our favorite destinations is the Luangwa Valley in Zambia, where Norman Carr pioneered walking safaris in the 1950’s, preferring the traditional way of exploring the surrounding wilderness. Every detail – from guide training to bush camps – is aimed at helping you become a part of your surroundings. You are alert to the sound of breaking branches and animal sounds, and smaller details reveal themselves, like subtle changes in the foliage and the presence of insects.
