Top 4 Family-friendly Reserves for your Winter Holiday:
If you’re worried about the kids getting the sniffles, or you’re just not up for traditional camping, we recommend glamping in comfort and style at Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve near Swellendam where the magical indigenous forest becomes ever more enchanting under the illuminating winter sky. To make things easier, glamping sites are situated only a few metres from the forest. Whilst immersing yourself in this mystical part of the Overberg, take full advantage of the multitude of winter activities the reserve has to offer. Take your children bird watching and make it a fun learning experience with the chance of encountering up to 196 different bird species. If you decide to go hiking you might see some bushbuck, baboons, emperor butterflies, and possibly catch a glimpse of the aloof ghost frog subspecies. For bigger kids and adventure seekers, the reserve has a 6km mountain bike trail which is perfect for some wet and muddy fun this time of year. After a full day of exploring, you can wash the mud off under your exclusive glamping shower installed with hot water.
