Family Friendly Accommodation Guide

A large percentage of holiday makers and visitors to South Africa travel with children. If you're taking the family on vacation and looking for child friendly accommodation Portfolio has a large number of guest houses, B&Bs, farm stays, safari lodges and self-catering villas and apartments that welcome children on our books.

Many families enjoy staying in a self catering villa which allows freedom and a relaxed atmosphere without set meal times or other guests to worry about.

Farm stays and safari holidays are also popular with families. It's wonderful for children to get to encounter domestic and wild animals first hand - from the back of a tractor or a 4x4 game viewer. The wide open spaces are also very appealing, especially for those who usually live in cities or subrubs.

Guesthouses and Bed and Breakfasts have the added advantage of serving yummy breakfasts daily, and in some cases dinners and lunches can be arranged in advance. Your room will be serviced daily (what a pleasure to come back after a long day site seeing and have clean fresh rooms and turned down beds waiting!) and you may meet other families with kids your own children can play with. Most family friendly establishments have outdoor play areas for little ones, and menus that cater to small tummies.

Whether you're taking the family to Jo'burg, Durban, Cape Town, the Garden Route, Kruger Park or anywhere else in South Africa you'll find luxury and comfortable accommodation welcoming children of all ages on our website.
