Make holidays with the kids less like a chore and more like a celebration with these tips from World Leisure Travel.
Factoring your child’s needs into your travel plans involves organisation and forward thinking. Fortunately, there are several family friendly holiday destinations and resorts in South Africa that can take the stress out of family holidays and allow you the relaxation you deserve. Consider the following when planning your next family escape:
01 TIME MANAGEMENT
Toddlers love to explore and don’t care for the time pressures of travel. The greatest holiday treat you can give everyone in the family is to keep your cool and factor in the faffing, gawping, stalling, and toilet stops.
02 GIVE THE KIDS A CAMERA
Children love to mimic their parents, so give yours their own robust, child-friendly camera and encourage them to observe their surroundings and focus on what interests them. You might be surprised at the results from their knee-high view.
03 BE PREPARED FOR THE CLIMATE
Do your research before you make the trip and pack according to the climate of your destination. Be prepared for the weather and the terrain – whether its jackets and boots or shorts and flip-flops, everyone will be happier if they are appropriately dressed for the occasion. Remember to protect everyone’s skin from South Africa’s harsh elements and insist that everyone wears sunscreen and a hat.
