Planning trip-suggestions, please?

I have no idea just yet what to plan for and would love to hear any thoughts. I do know that we would like to so some sort of safari experience and will have one of our daughters, age 9, with us. That said, we do not want some kind of "kid-friendly" experience which brings some kind of Disneyesque/chicken-fingers type picture to mind! ;) We have traveled all over the world with our children and find they rise to the situation when they are presented with such. Thanks for your time, advisors!

Sheila

Hi Sheila,

The Cheetah program at Spier ( Stellenbosch) is a good experiece. They also have numerous game birds which have been rescued .You can get up close with them.

Boulders beach is also great. There are loads of penguins that are extremely entertaining to watch. If you want to risk the cold water on the beach you are sometimes lucky enough to be able to swim with them,

There aren't really safari experiences to be had in CT. For the best you need to head to either Addo or Kruger. There are a couple of Safari places on the Garden Route, but to me they are all a little bit canned!

See my post (5.) to the following thread with some attractions that we enjoyed around Cape Town. Several already included in the list above. Plenty to keep you busy in the Cape.
