Your family adventure begins! Spend four nights in Cape Town where you’ll stay in an OROKO partner hotel.
Exploring the streets, you’ll discover a variety of enticing culture and cuisine. Table Mountain National Park is the crown jewel of the city. Stunning views and a park filled with vivid flora, it forms a barrier encompassing Cape Town in an expertly painted natural canvas.

It is an icon of struggle, freedom and hope, made famous by Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment here. It is now home to over 130 birds, some of which are endangered species.

“I’ve been a customer of OROKO for the last 12 months and have booked family holidays, ski trips and short breaks. The whole experience is brilliant; you explain the type of holiday that you are hoping to have, without specifying necessarily where and the team will present you a series of ideas and options, all costed out. It takes away all the stress of planning a trip. On top of this, you receive a full itinerary, and all activities can be sourced in advance. I’m a big fan.”
