From sprawling beaches to stark mountains and the arid, yet magical, Klein Karoo in between, this remarkable stretch of South Africa quite easily forms the backdrop for exciting and relaxing family holidays.

We have put together a guide of what you can get up to during your family adventures this Easter and Autumn.

Kids camp looks and feels a lot like summer camp. The difference is you get to go home every day, and then join us again the next day. Kids camp is for boys and girls between the ages of 8-12, who want to have a ton of fun on the beach and in the water this summer.

It's a four to five-day camp where we're going to be doing a whole lot of swimming, beach gaming, healthy snacking, and...wait for it...SURFING!
