we stayed in a fab cottage in Hout Bay near Capetown with our 4 month old in December. web site is intaba-lodge.com.

another great place was Africa's Call in Plettenburg Bay - africascall.com. The honeymoon suites are huge and perfect for a family. the owners have a 6 month old and are very nice.

as far as activities, there are lots of beautiful national parks, beaches, etc.

Thanks Rumpole, Vineyard looks lovely, will see if there are enough rands left in the pot for a couple of nights when we've booked the rest of the holiday, fingers crossed. Am currently trawling website, so many places so little time smile

This is a good website: http://www.tourismcapetown.co.za

Are you staying in Cape town at all? We stayed in a great place in Newlands in the suburbs near Kirstenbosch called the Vineyard. Website is www.vineyard.co.za. Not cheap but brilliant, very family friendly and good reliable babysitting.

Thanks bluesky (and PuzzleRocks). Anyone else got any gems of advice?

we went to South Africa for the first time with children last year and following a recommendation in one of the Sunday Papers we found lots of help and advice (and eventually) booking through http://bushybaby.travel

We arrive mid March when DS will be 9 months old. We will have a car and no particular schedule other than to enjoy the beautiful beaches and mountains - ooohhh can't wait. Any recommendations of family friendly places to stay and things to do would be gratefully received smile
