Parkour, a Treasure Hunt and Bootcamp These School Holidays

Holiday programmes, boot camps and the Zip Zap Circus for June-July holidays

It’s probably the kids’ favourite time of the year, but three weeks off can get taxing on the parents. The good news? We’ve rounded up a list of activities for kids and the whole family to enjoy for the June–July holidays, from holiday programmes to an affordable trip up Table Mountain, you’ll wish the holidays were even longer.  

STELLENBOSCH ANIMAL FARM
Take the kids out to the winelands to see the cuddly farm animals at an animal farm or enjoy the thrill of a mini racetrack or an enormous sandpit in Stellenbosch. This family-friendly spot has a play area for the kids, and one for the parents too – the vineyard produces its own wine and offers wine tastings. There’s so much more to discover, you’ll definitely want to spend some holiday time at the Vredenheim Animal Farm.
Open: 9am–5pm
Price: R50pp for kids and R75pp for adults to enter the animal farm
