South Africa

This could be your next unforgettable destination

South Africa is made for LGBTQ+ family holidays. This gay-friendly country offers so much for couples with kids, including the chance to see elephants roaming through reserves with their calves. We know the coolest child-friendly safari camps and also the best places to stay in Cape Town. There’s plenty for little ones to discover in the capital, including the penguins waddling around Boulders Beach, the chance to make sandcastles on Camps Bay Beach, and feeling like you are on top of the world as you get higher and higher in the Table Mountain cable car. 

Once in South Africa, you can eat and drink like royalty for a fraction of the price back home, making this a really fantastic option for a family holiday.

Elle Says:

South Africa is also fabulous for a honeymoon. Vineyards, swanky art galleries and picturesque self-drives along the Garden Route can be perfectly paired with boutique luxury hotels.

Destination Rainbow

Destination Rainbow is an independent travel agency specialising in LGBTQ+ family holidays. But we have many strings to our multi-coloured bow. We also love planning romantic escapes for couples and are always happy to hear from friends and allies who need to escape to a sun-kissed beach or finally fulfil that long-awaited adventure.

Our travel agency is run by Elle, an LGBTQ+ mum of 3 who knows how important it is to get a family holiday right. We offer expert advice on how safe a country is and recommend hotels that welcome LGBTQ+ families with open arms. By researching the best resorts, chatting to those who work there and hearing our own guests’ experiences, we are building a collection of favourite retreats where you can be your true selves. They are competitively priced, too.

Our ethos is about personal service, trust and building a lasting relationship, so you know exactly who to call whenever you need a holiday.
