Cape Town (Afrikaans: Kaapstad), is the second most populous urban area in South Africa, after Johannesburg. It is also the provincial capital and prime city of the Western Cape- and for families, this is probably the number one family-friendly destination in South Africa.  This inexpensive family travel and holiday destination offers a wide variety of Kids Indoor Play Venues, 50+ Child-friendly Restaurants and Amazing Outdoor Adventure Activities. In short, it is perfect for a  family holiday, as was recently discovered by blogger, Alexa, during her 48 Hour Getaway in Cape Town with Kids.

With a wide variety of educational things to do with kids, excursions, child- friendly accommodation and camping and glamping spots, party venues and outdoor activities such as Kayak trips for families in Cape Town, it is a must-see for every tourist, local and international. The Western Cape offers long walks on family-friendly beaches, child-friendly night-time activities and public play parks for all to explore.
