At Outposts Travel Africa we love arranging wonderful family holidays. We are always looking out for places that encourage children to explore and love Africa. They are the clients of the future and their memories and experiences will hopefully inspire them to be a part of the awareness and conservation of this magnificent continent and its wildlife.

There’s nothing more exciting than seeing ‘Africa’ through the eyes of your own children. Sharing their wonder, watching every little detail being digested, savoured and stored for life. How easy it is to enjoy learning when there is so much all around that inspires the senses. How important for later life too to have these memories of ‘shared’ time in Africa.

Whichever destination you choose, most importantly we want you to come away with memories to last and to bring joy to generations to come.

18 Day Self-Drive Family Holiday | KwaZulu-Natal South Africa

Outposts Travel Africa arranged an 18 day family holiday for a lovely family of 4 who were keen to visit South Africa together during the school holidays. We organised an adventure-packed self-drive itinerary that took them on a journey through KwaZulu-Natal.

“We had wonderful experiences together that we’ll never forget. “

“We all had a great first experience in South Africa. We liked Antbear Lodge very much especially as it was our first stop in the country and after a long trip I must say it was a particularly relaxing place. The lodge is in a really remote and wild location with some beautiful views of the Drakensberg Mountains. Amakosi Lodge was also a favourite which has a very high standard of services and comfort. The staff who guided us (Jeremy the tracker and Aden the ranger) were more than perfect. You could have said that they were as excited as us in tracking and watching the animals. Every single morning and evening they gave us more than 2 hours and 30 minutes of pure happiness. I felt like our children were watching their favourite film ‘The Lion King’ in motion.”
