The MORE Family Experience is built on the first-hand understanding of family dynamics. Robert is a parent of young twins, and it is important to him that their guests feel as comfortable as they do when they take their children on safari or down to the Cape. He wanted to create an environment tailored to both young and old, and have done so by crafting special interactive children’s programmes at each of the Lodges. This being said, families are not restricted to an itinerary and can tailor their stay based on exactly what they feel like doing, or taking advantage of opportunities that may arise in the moment. Parents have the choice of either engaging in the learning with their kids, or stealing a few hours for themselves.

Age limits, children’s rates and restrictions at each of the MORE properties:

At Lion Sands and Cape Cadogan we accommodate children of 10 years and older, while are Madikwe Safari Lodge and More Quarters we welcome children of all ages. Marataba Safari Lodge accommodates children of 6 years and older, while Marataba Trails Lodge accommodates children of 16 years and older.

At Madikwe Safari Lodge, More Quarters and Marataba Safari Lodge (6 and older only) children of 0-5 years stay free of charge, while children of 6-15 years pay 50% of adult rate when sharing a room with their parents.

At Madikwe Safari Lodge, game drives are not allowed for children under the age of two. A special family safari accommodates children between the ages of two and five, and departs at 11:00 in winter and 10:00 in summer, lasting approximately two hours.

Families are ideally suited to More Quarters in Cape Town. The apartment-style living affords the freedom for kids to be kids, and for adults to relax. Guests have the space to warm their own bottles, cook that favourite Mac ‘n Cheese (or order in), and to spend a quiet evening in adult company post-bedtime.

With so many family friendly experiences in and around Cape Town, the guest relations team at More Quarters is on hand to assist with booking restaurants, outings for children of all ages (including trips to the winelands), to recommend the best beaches for kids and much more.

We offer a babysitting service at all Lodges and at More Quarters. Contact our reservations team for rates.
