Imagine scouring the plains of South Africa's world-renowned game parks for lion and cheetah, stopping beside watering holes in search of wildebeest and crocodiles, and introducing your children first hand to nature in its purest - and rawest - form. Kid & Coe has joined up with award-winning luxury safari operator Rothschild Safaris to offer a bespoke family safari including accommodation, nature reserve tours and safari tours with everything you might need to please parents and children alike. From guided excursions to tours in some of the world's best national parks for wildlife-watching, to optional babysitting, their tours can be arranged to suit your needs and budget.

A typical 12-day safari might include 3 days in Cape Town with private tours arranged according to your interests, 2 days on safari at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, 2 days exploring the delights of the Garden Route and 2 days on safari at the Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. Rothschild Safaris has been recognized by Travel + Leisure as one of the top safari operators in the world as well as the top family safari operator in the industry. The company's founder and much of the team have traveled extensively around Africa and beyond together as a family.

South Africa, Africa

Wild and free

South Africa’s wildlife makes big kids out of all of us. With everything from lions, giraffes and leopards in the legendary safari parks, to free-range African penguins on Boulder’s Beach in Cape Town, there are endless delights for animal lovers. Cable car trips up Table Mountain, boat trips to Nelson Mandela’s prison on Robben Island and long lunches in local wineries round off a perfect travel destination for a family. Beyond Cape Town, the winelands and coast beckon, with dramatic scenery and safari camps to help create a picture-perfect family vacation.
