Things to do

Sun-bleached beaches, awe-inspiring Table Mountain and charming waterfront markets make Cape Town an action-packed gem for families. Prepare to embark on unforgettable adventures; here's a selection of family-friendly favorites to help you make the most of your trip.

Begin your exploration at Intaka Island, a wetlands nature reserve just 12km from the city centre, home to 125 bird species and 170 plant species. Visit the environmentally-conscious Visitors' Centre, and spend the day discovering the area or trying out one of the nearby attractions like microlight flights or shopping centres.

Green Point Urban Park offers delight to all ages, with free entry, picnic areas, playgrounds, cycling lanes, and stunning views of the wetlands and ocean. Easily accessible via the City Sightseeing Bus (stop 12 on the red line), enjoy a relaxed family day out surrounded by serene nature.

Add a touch of excitement to your adventure at Cool Runnings Toboggan Family Park, the only toboggan track in Africa. With speeds up to 40 km/h and a 1.25 km steel track boasting 17 corners, S-bends, and a tunnel, children and adults alike are guaranteed an adrenaline-filled experience.

Finally, Cape Town's diverse family-oriented events and festivals provide a colourful backdrop to your holiday. Enjoy a trip to the city's popular markets or annual kite festival, and immerse in the local culture and excitement that makes Cape Town a brilliant destination for families everywhere.

When to visit

Due to Cape Town's vast array of attractions and natural beauty, there's never a wrong time to visit. The ideal time for your family vacation depends on your interests and preferences. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy game viewing from May to September, while birding peaks from November to February. For exhilarating whale-watching adventures, plan your visit between July and November. To find off-peak rates and great hiking opportunities, consider June to August.

Undoubtedly, holidays during school breaks provide the best opportunities for family bonding, and Cape Town offers delightful adventures throughout the year. Do bear in mind that travelling during school holidays means it's worthwhile to book your accommodation in advance, ensuring you get the most suitable family-friendly lodging for your needs.
