Family trip to Stellenbosch with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

P1050658 If you want to relax with your child, you should visit several places in Stellenbosch. It will be equally interesting for both parents and children there. Does your child dream of feeding a giraffe, petting a zebra, or holding a real tarantula? You should go to the Giraffe House wildlife Awareness Center. This is a fairly small but interesting zoo. Several dozen large birds of different breeds, turtles, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, wild boars, and many other animals live in spacious enclosures here. The Giraffe House Wildlife Awareness Center is an ordinary zoo but with a slightly greater emphasis on the visitor's ability to interact with the animal.

For example, a child and an adult can safely hold a python in their hands here. Or you will have the opportunity to pet one of the giraffes. These animals are curious by nature. They are used to the attention of visitors at the Giraffe House Wildlife Awareness Center. Therefore, they are willing to make contact. You can feed and pet almost any animal except alligators. The child will do this under the control of a park employee, of course. The zoo deserves the attention of children and adults despite its relatively small area.
There are several other interesting places near the ctown. They will appeal to animal fans. For example, a child will be able to see several dozen graceful cats very close at Drakenstein Lion Park. It is most interesting to come to the reserve during feeding. You can find out the time at which it is held on the organization's website. The child and his parents will be able to touch different birds of prey in Eagle Encounters. Owls, falcons, hawks, and griffins are tamed by humans and are not dangerous.

Acrobranch Stellenbosch is another quite interesting place where you can go as a family. Most likely, it will just be uninteresting for young children here. Most of the obstacles are not designed for kids. But the idea to overcome some simple route alone, to test your endurance, strength, and agility will surely appeal to schoolchildren and teenagers. You can also arrange small family competitions here. You will also be able to complete the most difficult route together, helping each other.
The island (wine tasting centre) and Jonkershoek Mountains, Stark-Condé Wines If Acrobranch Stellenbosch is a good place for schoolchildren, then Bugz Family Playpark is perfect for kids. This place cannot be considered "family" in the full sense of the word, despite the name. Parents will have nothing to do here, except to ride down the slides with their child or watch the child play sitting on a bench under the awning with a portion of ice cream. But it will be a lot of fun for kids in Bugz Family Playpark. There are several beautiful playgrounds and two dozen different attractions here. Swings, carousels, slides, dollhouses, climbing walls, and much more will allow your child to spend more than one day with interest here. Also, there are usually a lot of children in the park. Therefore, the child will be able to communicate with peers from another country.

Some places will appeal to young fans of computer "shooting games" in Stellenbosch. Many adults will also be interested in the opportunity to shoot with real weapons. A child can try out the role of a hunter with a gun or a cowboy with a revolver under the control of experienced instructors in Clay Pigeon Adventures and Shootopia Shooting Adventures. It is unlikely that a child under eight or ten years old will be able to hold a real weapon. Therefore too young children will have nothing to do here.
P1050676 If your child is interested in rugby or sports in general, you can go together to a match of local teams at Coetzenburg Athletics Stadium. If your child likes to ride a bike and is not afraid of long trips, you can go on a trip to the beautiful suburbs of Stellenbosch for half a day or a day. Several companies in the town organize similar tours. This could be the Dirtopia Trail Centre. You can also choose a small route for a couple of hours for a trip with the kids. The idea of admiring suburban fields in the light of a full moon is sure to appeal to teenagers.

The child will be able to take beautiful photos and learn a lot about the flora and fauna of such a mysterious continent for Europeans as Africa.
