New to Cape Town: Royaltea bar serves premium teas and other treats
Take The Kids To Visit Some Animals This Weekend
From piggies and rabbits to the mini racetrack and enormous sandpit, Vredenheim Animal Farm offers something for everyone
Every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm, R45 per kid (R25 for adults) gets you into Vredenheim Animal Farm, a safe, farmyard-style gated and fenced area among the vineyards.
THE WHOLE FAMILY WILL BE ENTERTAINED
The combination of game drives on their rugged-yet-cosy trailer pulled by a beautifully classic tractor, the big cats park complete with lions and tigers, wine tasting among the vineyards and kiddies adventures that allow interaction with all manner of friendly animals, a mini racetrack and enormous sandpit (push bikes and beach toys provided by Vredenheim), mean this Stellenbosch farm truly has something to keep mom, dad and the kids fully entertained.
FEED THE THREE LITTLE PIGS
Inside are bovine calves, friendly sheep, fallow deer, turkeys, free-roaming chickens and rabbits, talkative goats and – everyone’s favourite – the three resident pigs. All tame, all friendly and all ready and waiting to eat (you can buy a bag of animal feed for R7 at the food court).
Check the Facebook page for info on daily open times during school and public holidays.
