Embarking on a family adventure is always an exhilarating experience, filled with anticipation and excitement. I would spend hours planning what we’d see, where we’ll stay… and take into account the kids’ possible limits.

This year I struck it lucky. I managed to secure unbelievably cheap FlySafair tickets and we just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go to CAKE TOWN!

We got those cheap Flysafair tickets (now, that was a pleasant surprise)

As a mom always on the lookout for budget-friendly travel options, I couldn’t believe my luck when I scored cheap Flysafair tickets. It was like a gift from the travel gods! Needless to say, I wasted no time in booking our accommodation in Cape Town.

I had 2 screens open, one with Flysafair and another that I was busy working on. I don’t know what made me look to the side, but the screen had changed and I was no longer in the queue. I quickly ran through the booking process trying to find flights that works with school, but at that late stage of the sale I couldn’t be too picky. It’ll be a short visit, but the Kids will see CAKE TOWN.

We’re going to Cape Town with the kids

Traveling with children can be both challenging and rewarding. However, hubby and I firmly believe that exposing our little ones to new experiences is an essential part of their growth. Cape Town promises to be a perfect destination for us to explore together – and to prepare for what we will be doing later this year…

Travelling light, it will take some planning

We’re going to travel light with only 2 carry-on backpacks, because as soon as we step off the airplane, our itinerary starts. By doing so, we eliminate the hassle of checked luggage and have the freedom to start exploring Cape Town as soon as we land. It’s a practical choice that allows us to be more flexible and efficient throughout our trip.

Now, packing for four people in a couple of backpacks does require some careful planning. We have to consider our essentials, such as clothing, toiletries, and a few must-have items for the kids. We’ve compiled a detailed packing list, ensuring that we bring only the necessities while leaving enough room for any souvenirs the kids might pick up along the way.

A flight of firsts

This trip holds a special significance for our family as it marks my youngest daughter’s first flight experience. I can’t wait to witness her amazement as we take off and explore Cape Town together. Additionally, it will be my two little girls’ first adventure at the tip of Africa!

Hold on tight, family travel adventurers! Now that we’ve scored those Flysafair tickets, we are preparing to go on our adventure soon. It will be our little one’s FIRST flight, and we’ll be using it to prepare our kids for an even bigger trip later this year! We are packing LIGHT because we are hitting Cape Town hard as soon as we land.
