Planning family adventures in Cape Town is easy once you have a place to stay, and our luxury villas are the perfect solution if you want to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.  We have villas available to suit the largest family, with prime rentals in the perfect location to make this the holiday of your dreams. Once you arrive in Cape Town and get comfortably settled inside your villa, you’ll be looking for things to see and do together on the days when you are feeling more active. Some days you’ll simply want to laze by the pool, and others you’ll want to be out and about seeing what the local area has to offer, and will no doubt be looking for fun things to do as a family.

With the kids in tow, you can keep them and yourself amused by visiting these following attractions well-renowned for their ability to bring enjoyment to people of all ages.    

 The Company’s Gardens

Based in Cape Town, The Company’s Garden is a green oasis popular with both locals and tourist alike. Full of fabulous lush green fauna, you’ll also spot plenty of wildlife here, including squirrels that you can feed with bags of nuts purchased in the park as they scamper right up to you. Keep your eyes peeled for Egyptian geese and herons - you’ll also spot plenty of pigeons and quite a few other critters too. The Company’s Gardens is also home to the South African National Gallery which houses a very impressive collection of permanent art. Plus there’s a really tasty restaurant in the Gardens with its own outdoor seating area, so it’s the ideal family attraction for a day out.


Head out to the Atlantis Dunes for fun and thrills on the fine white sand and hone your sandboarding skills. A bit like snowboarding, but using sand instead of the white powder, Cape Xtreme Adventure Tours promise to provide you with a day filled with adventure. Kids, mums and dads can all take part and this is seriously addictive. Hit the sand, test your balance and skill, and become a bit of a sandboarding expert in no time. After spending the day on a sandboard you’ll be looking forward to heading back to your villa for a spot of rest and relaxation, and let’s face it, you’ll have earned it!

Iziko Museum Planetarium       

Stars are fascinating right? So why not appreciate a clear night sky and get up close and personal with the planets inside a hugely innovative planetarium and digital dome? The Iziko Museum of South Africa features this world-class facility where fascinating worlds collide as art, science and entertainment blend seamlessly into one.  This highly immersive multi-sensory entertainment will leave you and the rest of your family gasping with delight, as you are provided with a hard-to-beat experience involving animation and 3600 cinema.   

Scratch Patch

South Africa is famous for its gemstones with nearly half of the world’s stones originating from here. Did you know you can actually scratch for your own gems right here in South Africa and discover the magic of minerals this way? With this activity, you literally scratch about for tumble-polished gemstones and choose from thousands of minerals that litter the floor at the Scratch Patch and Mineral World outlets found in Simon’s Town and the V&A Waterfront. Buy a small plastic bag or a container at the site and decide which stones you want to collect. You’ll be spoilt for choice and the whole experience is uplifting and has a very calming effect.      

Go Karting

Calling all petrolheads, get behind the wheel and see who’s the fastest driver in the family - enjoy some good old-fashioned fun at Kenilworth Karting, South Africa’s best kart venue. You can arrive and drive on the 310-meter track and nail some serious overtaking moves driving speedy 160cc racing karts. This fast and extremely well-built track offers a modern racing environment and you can have plenty of fun and be a little bit competitive at the same time, with the fastest drivers taking all the accolades at the end of the day.

Noordhoek Farm Village

Families have an amazing time at the Noordhoek Farm Village and it’s easy to see why when you consider just how much is going on here. This wonderful setting lies in the charming seaside suburb at the southern end of Chapham’s Peak Drive and well worth visiting mainly due to its choice of restaurants, cafes, pubs, children’s playground, spa, antique shops and so much more.  This village is all about family, and locals say it’s one of Cape Town’s best-kept secrets. The Village Sushi is worth the trip alone and renowned for the quality of its Asian cuisine.     

Table Mountain Cableway

As one of the best-known attractions in the country, there’s no better way to experience 3600 views of Cape Town than at the very top of Table Mountain. Catch a cable car to the very top then explore the summit before grabbing a bite to eat and something to drink at Table Mountain Café. The 5-minute cable car ride is a journey you’ll never forget, and there’s even a shop at the top if you fancy a spot of retail therapy. With free audio tours available and guided walks departing daily, this family-friendly experience is sure to appeal to all members of your party.
