Keeping children occupied is always a challenge for busy parents, but those on holiday in Cape Town have a wide choice when it comes to entertaining their little ones. Parents need not fear that their kids will suffer from cabin fever - not only is the climate conducive to plenty of outdoor rough-and-tumble, but there are also indoor activities galore to keep little people content; and even more activities that moms and dads will also take pleasure in doing.
The city seen through the eyes of a child becomes one large playground. There are mountains to climb, wildlife to witness, forests to explore, botanical gardens in which to run freely and beautiful beaches where sand and sea offer hours of fun no money can buy.
Cape Town is the ideal destination for kids: there’s plenty to do, whether you decide to play ball on one of our many pristine beaches, visit Simon’s Town to see the penguins, or take a walk in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. The trick is to enjoy each outing to the full, rather than packing too much into a day.
