Why we love South Africa
Child Friendly Environment
With many exclusive lodges in South Africa offering family rooms and private houses it is now easier than ever to visit South Africa with the whole family and create lasting memories. With the best time to visit the national parks coinciding with the summer holidays you won’t have to worry about the children missing school. During this time the climate is cooler as it is the winter months between May and September, this means cooler evenings and less bugs to worry about in the evenings. Many lodges and private houses offer a variety of child friendly activities such as tracking lessons and babysitting can easily be organized with the lodges if parents wish to take part in activities such as bush walks, as there is often an age limit with this type of activity
Travelling with the Family
Travelling with families can be made stress free thanks to charter flights that can be used to hope from the location to location with ease. This freedom to move means families can wake up in the Phimba Game Reserve and be going to sleep overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from the waterfront in Cape Town. South Africa positioning makes it easy to combine other countries into the trip. With direct flights from Johannesburg to Lusaka and Livingstone Cape Town to Livingstone.
Activities for the Young
South Africa is an incredible location to do a wide range of activities. With fun activities like canoeing, hot-air ballooning, helicopter rides, river trips and fishing, swimming, and diving just to name a few. There are plenty of fun activities for all ages to keep the whole family happy during the free time between game drives.

Awash with variety, from sandy beaches to mountain hiking trails, national parks to vibrant shopping areas. First-class restaurants, interesting galleries and luxury boutique hotels. Cape Town will appeal to just about anyone in the mood for a holiday. It’s a perfect stop for honeymooners, families and adventure lovers.
Kafue National Park
The Kruger National Park and Greater Kruger ecosystem is South Africa’s most famous safari export and possibly the best known big game safari area in Africa. The location for any visitor in search of guaranteed sightings of Africa’s iconic wildlife, the Kruger is a wonderful destination with accommodation to suit most styles and budgets. True Luxury Travel particularly like the carefully controlled private reserves which form part of this vast protected area – the Timbavati and Sabi Sands Game Reserves are home to wonderful wildlife, great guides and luxury lodges. Our True Luxury Travel specialists have a wealth of experience of South African safari. We have guided, managed and constructed lodges across South Africa, as well as been fortunate enough to experience safari from the Kalahari to the Kruger, Madikwe to the Eastern Cape, the Karoo to KwaZulu Natal. Each of these different safari areas has certain highlights we would love to talk you through. While the Greater Kruger is South Africa’s most visited safari destination, it is important to remember that, although low-risk, this is a malarial destination. For families or those looking to avoid these areas the Madikwe, Waterberg, Kalahari and Eastern Cape are all fantastic options to consider.
The Waterberg is one of the 5 districts of Limpopo province of South Africa. It is a mountainous region of spectacular scenery and wildlife. The majority of South Africa's best features are showcased in this region, from scenic mountains to a big five game viewing and a rich archaeological and biological diversity.
De Hoop Nature Reserve
De Hoop Nature reserve is situated 3 hours east of Cape Town along the Garden Route. the nature reserves boasts some of the most exclusive beach lodges and private houses, along with some of the best places in South Africa to see Humpback and Southern Right whales. With a wide range of activities such as diving, biking, bush walks and birdwatching to try while visiting the nature reserve.
