DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Aug. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Multi-generational travel is a hot ticket these days, and African Travel, Inc. has seen a huge increase in family holiday travel. Winter is the perfect time to go to South Africa - it's summer there and not only do you escape our Northern Winters, but the game viewing is excellent! And there are many great family packages, such as African Travel's Southern Explorer , where you'll experience the endearing penguins of Boulders Beach;  glory in the thunderous sounds of Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders; and thrill on search of the "Big Five" twice daily during game activities while staying at the luxurious and truly unforgettable Kings Camp in the Kruger Private Reserve.

According to Jim Holden, President of African Travel, Inc., "Family travel to Africa is a most rewarding experience with activities catering to all ages from socializing with penguins, riding elephants, visiting rural bush schools, shooting the rapids below Victoria Falls, taking a micro-light flight over the Falls, sampling the wines of the Cape of Good Hope, hiking the iconic Table Mountain, to enjoying the variety of cuisine on offer in the Rainbow Nation of South Africa."
