Regardless of how many Jellycat giraffe teddies the children own, or how Elmer the Elephan encyclopedic they are, nothing even comes close to seeing African wildlife in its natural habitat for the first time. We think that your wild things will enjoy a safari experience in family-friendly South Africa from around the age of five. While safari may not have registered on your radar for sprogs this young before, choose the right destination (clue: that would be South Africa) and your diminutive David Attenboroughs will love the experience every bit as much as you. Add time spent in The Cape for the perfect all-round family trip.
