Travel to Africa with the kids to two malaria-free “Big 5” reserves in South Africa: Pilanesberg and Madikwe.

The adventure begins at Sun City Cabanas, which offers plenty of family-Focused entertainment right next to the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, where the characters of the Lion King come to life. Head further north into the wilder “Big 5” Madikwe Game Reserve where the exclusive Tuningi Safari Lodge awaits. Take game drives at leisure, for as long as you and the kids can handle. The fairytale concludes at Livingstone’s AVANI Victoria Falls Resort, which boasts a huge lagoon pool and Africa’s largest waterfall on its doorstep.
