You’ll discover the laid back Capetonian way of family life with your local Cape Town host, and your tribe, by your side. Locals love the blend of outdoor living and big city creativity that Cape Town offers, and your host can’t wait to share that with you and your family.

You’ll experience the diversity of the city as you embark on your very own 4 hour family adventure. You could get active and hike Lions Head if your little ones’ legs aren’t too little, hit the pristine beaches of the southern peninsula and visit the resident penguins (no, we’re not joking, there really are penguins) or play it really local and camp out in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens with a picnic.

Rainy days and fussy eaters are no problem either; you could visit a museum or historic neighborhood, and try a koeksister or three - they're the city’s favorite sweet treat for a reason.

  • Explore the Mother City in a way that caters to the entertainment of the entire family

  • Enjoy the outdoors, whether it’s from the vantage point of Table Mountain or simply relaxing on the beach as the kids play
