Kids Month is an initiative that was created by West Coast Way as part of their “way-cation” campaign – a mission to encourage and invite South Africans of all ages to explore the Cape West Coast – which is literally on Cape Town’s doorstep – and to enjoy everything that this stunning coastal playground has to offer.

“We created Kids Month as we realise how pricey it can be to get away as a family these days, but that South Africans do love to explore and get out there to experience our rich tourism offerings. The deals set up for Kids Month will help families to do exactly this,” says Carmen Lerm, founder and CEO of West Coast Way.


“The West Coast “playground” stretches from the city of Cape Town up to the Northern Cape and Namibia’s border and has its own unique way of life and way of doing things. It’s peaceful, laid-back, friendly and always inviting with fresh, smack-of-the-sea cuisine, powder-white beaches and quaint ‘n comfy, family-friendly accommodation.” 

Grown-up way-cationers can explore an exciting collection of 101 road-trip stops along six themed routes, all of which are designed to showcase the many attractions and activities on the Cape West Coast and inland areas. “That’s why it’s called South Africa’s Road-Trip with the most twists!” explains Lerm.
