Tour at a glance

This South Africa & Mauritius family safari visits welcoming resorts and destinations. Children can unleash their inner wildling in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. The safari ends with beach days in Mauritius, where families may relax.

Visit “Cradle of Humankind.” A fascinating and engaging visit to a UNESCO World Heritage site teaches adults and children about our species’ origins. The richest hominid fossil site (with a delightful indoor boat ride) is a great start to a learning-filled vacation.

Madikwe is a malaria-free game reserve perfect for small children. Lelapa’s draws aren’t just game viewing and guides. Special family “bumble drives” allow families with children under 6 to experience nature together, pausing to point out interesting objects. Children 6 and older can participate twice-daily game drives. Lelapa’s “Mack and Madi adventure safari club” is popular with families (now grown). Days at the club can include meeting Debbie, the bearded dragon, and baking. Every family is assigned a childminder to assist your children discover the natural environment, freeing you up for a date night drinking champagne by the campfire.

After a safari-themed week, unwind by the ocean. Mauritius is a short trip from South Africa and provides the perfect self-contained place to relax. Five nights in a double suite pool villa at Shanti Maurice with full board.

Les Petits Dodo offers games, crafts, movies, and pyjama parties for kids. Family eating begins at 6:30, with a broad and excellent children’s menu. Families with infants can request a wide range of devices to make travelling light easier. Privacy and peace reign.
