For parents, this is probably one the most commonly searched for term on google. Especially during the school holidays. I’m one of those parents too, so don’t feel too alone. Also, kids don’t want to do the fun things we did during the school holidays anymore. They want to be entertained. So if you’re looking for fun things to do with yours, here are 6 epic places in Cape Town your kids will enjoy these holidays.
Explore our beautiful Table Mountain with Cableway’s 3-for-1 Kidz Season special
With the Cableways’ 3-for-1 special, two kids go free for every adult ticket purchased. All children receive a treasure hunt map. Younger kids might need some extra help with the activities, although you might find yourself having fun too. If you’re hungry and need a snack, pop into the Shop at the Top and Table Mountain Café.
Free 30-minute guided tours depart from the Twelve Apostles Terrace, below the Shop at the Top and the Table Mountain Café, on the hour from 9am to 3pm daily. These family-friendly walks provide interesting facts and stories about the mountain and the Cableway
