South Africa for Teens

For teenagers, South Africa opens up into a playground of exciting wildlife, rich culture and adrenaline filled activities. At Scott Dunn, we know the best places to explore to create the most memorable South Africa vacation for your family. Being such a diverse country, there is something to pique the interest of even the most hard-to-please teens.

If your teen is an active adventurer, South Africa has standup paddle boarding with penguins in Cape Town, game safaris where you can view the “Big Five” in Madikwe, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, ATV tours and hiking.

Or if your teen prefers more cultural pursuits, they can explore the various museums that delve into South Africa’s sordid history, or your family can visit Long St. & Kloof St. in Cape Town for vibrant galleries, antique shops, bookstores, and out-of-this-world restaurants. Those with an artistic eye can even go on a private photographic safari with award winning photographer Mike Dexter.

With so many cool once-in-a-lifetime experiences available in South Africa, there’s no way your family will get bored.
