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.

ON SAFARI IN SOUTH AFRICA SPOTTING A ROYAL BEETLE

By: 
ON SAFARI IN SOUTH AFRICA SPOTTING A ROYAL BEETLE By David Tett This December, when Carolyn and I took our two kids on their 5th safari in Africa in Madikwe Private Game Reserve in South Africa, up by the Botswana border, we had the great pleasure of learning more about some fascinating creatures – great and small From many aspects, this lesser known private reserve in South Africa revealed wonderful safari moments, from busy scurrying scarab beetles fighting over dung balls, to stunning sightings of numerous white rhino, and even a rare brown hyaena. Maybe surprisingly, it was the African Wild Dogs and the Scarab (a.k.a Dung) Beetles that really captivated us.

Top 5 Reasons to Visit South Africa

By: 
Top 5 Reasons to Visit South Africa By Carolyn Tett 1. A year-round destination with a great climate. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Indian Ocean to the east, South Africa enjoys a temperate climate, with some regional variation, but a very low annual rainfall overall, making it a destination for all seasons, and ideal for building a custom safari (with options for beach time, wine tasting, whale watching, and much more) around any dates you desire.   2. World-class wildlife viewing and private reserves perfect for families. South Africa’s Kruger National Park is a world-renowned wildlife destination, and the oldest national park in Africa. Sharing a border with Kruger, Mala Mala Game Reserve is a private reserve with exclusive game viewing areas and the highest land to guest ratio in the region.  90% of the reserve is strategically sandwiched between the 11 mile open boundary with the Kruger National Park and the Sand River. If you only visit Africa once, this is the place where you are most likely to see the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros). In addition, Mala Mala offers a Junior Ranger program with activities designed just for kids and teens.
