No jet lag; wildlife at every turn; English-speaking; kid-loving and unbelievably good value for money.

Cape Town and the surrounding region has lots going for it when it comes to family travel. Combine all this with epic drives between
the most family-orientated self-catering accommodation out there – darting between beachfront huts, wild farmsteads and stone cottages on ancient lagoons – and you’ve got a pretty wonderful family holiday.

Depending on how long you have, how good your kids are in the car and what’s top of the agenda (wine-tasting, kite-surfing or safari), here is a mix and match guide to family travel in Cape Town and the Western Cape.
