Why We Love South Africa




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 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.


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.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
