Form lifelong memories with all members of your family, when you discover the landscapes and Big-Five magic of &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve. The reserve is renowned for hosting some of the continent’s finest game viewing experiences and profound wide-ranging conservation initiatives. Here, young ones can take advantage of a fun-filled WILDchild programme whilst tweens, teens, parents and grandparents can revel in a range of exciting safari activities.

The next leg of your adventure takes you to Tswalu Kalahari, South Africa’s largest private game reserve. This is a place of unique family safari experiences set against broad expanses of pristine grasslands, dunes, and mountains. Soar above the vast plains on a helicopter safari, jump in the saddle for horseback rides, learn the art of tracking on walking safaris, meet curious meerkats on a meerkat experience, discover San petroglyphs and be captivated on exciting game drives.

After getting your safari fix, you and your family will be whisked away to the ‘Mother City’ of Cape Town: a city of picture-book natural beauty from the heights of Table Mountain to the shores of the Indian and Atlantic Ocean coastlines, and nearby mountain and vineyard vistas.



This unforgettable journey showcases just a few of our favourite multi-generational family experiences in South Africa. It is merely an example from which you can use to start dreaming and creating your own tailormade adventure with one of our dedicated Travel Specialists.

  • Your ultra-spacious sole-use villa includes a dedicated butler, chef, ranger and tracker team, and private game vehicle.
  • &Beyond Phinda is home to Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), as well as 436 bird species. The reserve is particularly well known for close-up sightings of the elegant yet elusive cheetah, as well as the rare black rhino.
  • Children will go wild here with the entertaining, educational and super fun WILDchild programme, learning and discovering new experiences and cultures.
  • Deeply rooted in the love for the African bush, it not only creates a series of unforgettable moments for the whole family but forges strong bonds between our young guests, our planet and its people.

Day 5: Tswalu Kalahari Game Reserve

  • After your morning game drive and breakfast, you will be driven to &Beyond Phinda Airstrip for your private charter flight to the Tswalu Airstrip, in the Kalahari Desert.
  • Once the Oppenheimer family home, the private homestead of Tswalu Tarkuni is for your exclusive use.
  • An oasis of serenity, guests to Tarkuni are pampered by a dedicated team that includes a host and private chef to ensure a deeply personal experience. A private vehicle, personal field guide and tracker are on hand to create tailor-made safari adventures for your whole family.
  • This stark yet beautiful desert region is a textured terrain of vast open savannah, sandy dunes and diverse habitats. Meaning ‘great thirst’ or ‘waterless place’, it is home to an incredible wildlife population including zebra, giraffe, oryx, eland, as well as white rhino and the desert black rhino. The reserve is also inhabited by smaller mammals such as the pangolin, aardvark and African wild cats.

Day 9: Cape Town

  • Your family can enjoy the last morning at the lodge before heading to Cape Town on your scheduled charter flight.
  • Upon arrival at Cape Town International Airport, you will all be welcomed by a member from our &Beyond team who will drive you to Ellerman House, with breathtaking Atlantic Ocean outlooks.
  • As you drive toward the city, your view from afar will be of Table Mountain, with the beautiful city of Cape Town, and two great oceans at its feet.
  • The ultimate family holiday destination, Cape Town captivates the imagination of all ages. Boasting a plethora of outdoor activities that range from surfing to quad biking, abseiling and hiking, or just plain old seaside fun, families are guaranteed to find something to suit everyone.
  • The Mother City boasts a wide range of family restaurants and attractions, making it easy to travel with even the youngest of children, while the splendid seaside setting, and beautiful natural scenery create plenty of opportunity for shared adventures. From seal, whale and dolphin cruises to the penguins of Boulders Beach and the magnificent fauna and flora of Cape Point, where two oceans meet, Cape Town delights with its rich natural heritage.
