Port Elizabeth boasts fantastic beaches, an oceanarium and snake park at which to entertain children, the Garden Route is a wonderful escape for families with children of all ages, particularly for those children who can join you on walks through magical forests where the elusive knysna loerie serves as part of an entertaining diversion.
Cape Town holds a host of activities, both in and outdoors, like the Two Oceans Aquarium (with a wonderful child-friendly restaurant) at the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Peninsula National Park. In KwaZulu Natal the beaches of both the north and south coast make holidaying with children an absolute pleasure.
In Mpumalanga, The Bundu Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and Game Reserve is a must for little ones; and try to stop off at Elmswood furniture tea garden, where farm animals are available to pet in lovely surrounds.
In Johannesburg there are a number of fun activities for children: The Johannesburg Zoo in Parkview, with a farmyard section specially designed for under-sixes. In the North West Province, Hartebeespoort Dam is a great place for a family vacation and a visit to the De Wildt Cheetah Farm, one of the most renowned centres for breeding cheetahs, is a wonderful educational outing.
