Small children (Ages 5-10)
The hotel’s guides are dedicated to inspiring young generations and can facilitate a variety of activities like the ‘grubby nature walk’, which allows small children to find and learn about creepy crawlies, frogs and some of nature’s other surprises in the hotel garden and the nearby dam. Other activities include Zulu crafts, finger painting and pizza making.
Older children (Ages 11+)
Guided nature walks and wilderness navigation lessons re-connect tweens and teens with nature, while kayaking across the nearby dam allows encounters with terrapins, water birds and fish. Star-gazing and campfire cooking are an exciting end to a day of exploration.
