South Africa Family Safari

Custom | 12 Days | Easy Touring and Safari
  • Spot incredible wildlife at an off-the-radar, private game reserve
  • Options to hike, horseback ride, whale-watch, and kayak 
  • Explore Cape history and culture with a walking tour and township visit  
  • Scale Table Mountain for a barbecue and summit sleepover

South Africa is one of the world's most diverse countries, a place where towering giraffes and strong-shouldered zebras mingle on vast open plains, rolling grasslands give way to scenic coastal communities, and families of Homo sapiens gaze off Table Mountain one day and track lion the next. This seamless adventure combines cultural touring in and around Cape Town with sightings of fabulous wildlife, explorations of ancient cave dwellings, and time among flowering wild malvas and red ericas, making for an altogether unforgettable journey.


Words can't express how happy we are with the trip GeoEx put together for us. Traveling with our three kids for an extended period of time in South Africa was truly priceless—and something that we will all cherish forever! The beauty and culture of Cape Town, the meaningful township visits, and the adventurous, lively safari experiences combined to make a trip that was simply PERFECT!

– Melanie F.
