My South African family holidays

Lalie and friends

Lalie Ngozi, General Manager, South Africa Tourism Australasia talks to Out & About With Kids about her South Africa.

My ideal family holiday is… in South Africa, where there is so much to be learned from the culture and from nature. Most of the things that you would choose to go on any holiday for, you can enjoy and experience in South Africa.

With younger children, you can stay in one place and have an amazing holiday because there are still so many options. Sun City is an ideal place where you can combine moments of water fun, entertaining activities for kids of all ages, an educational element and plenty for mum and dad.


My fondest family holiday memory is…travelling within South Africa with my family. As the only daughter with three brothers I was always allowed to bring a girlfriend. We mostly went to Durban because of the beach and water activities. Our other favourite was Port St.Johns, for its nature reserves and beautiful beaches. We liked Silaka Nature Reserve, where we would book bungalows with other families. Magic!

My favourite meals abroad are… seafood – anywhere, any day! I definitely appreciate spicy food and anything with fresh chillies. That’s my perfect meal.

My top tip for those travelling with kids … Most people want to do the Big Five safari. Shamwari, Sanbona and Sabi Sabi are just a few of the amazing properties that offer fantastic family programs. Choose your adventures by getting our new Build Your Bucket List with our Facebook app or
via our website.

Every family should experience …An African sunset together.
