Those staying behind absolutely love the lack of traffic problems experienced during the December holidays, but they might become a little bored after a few days. If you need some things to do to keep yourself and the kids and even a mother-in-law happy, read here!
If you are looking for a fun day out in the sun for the family, Acrobranch at the Big Red Barn just 15 minutes from Centurion is a great option. Go on an adventure through a wonderful forest of eucalyptus trees. From ziplines to nets and barrels to fight on through, it is an exhilarating and fun activity for children as young as three years old to experience.
Nicknamed one of South Africa’s premier family entertainment venues; you can enjoy a round of mini golf in a relaxed and scenic surrounding. Extremely enjoyable for the whole family.
The indoor climate controlled Aquadome is a splash a minute, whatever the weather. Slip down the waterslide, explore the ship-wreck or simply take a dip in the warm water. With fully trained lifeguards on duty it’s not just fun, it’s perfectly safe too.
On the second Saturday of every month, artists and collectables meander through 4 different venues in Walkerville. Thyme Square garden centre and tea garden, The Walkerville Farmers Market with 100 crafters, produce and food stalls are all going to be there. There will also be pony rides for the kids and great competitions and giveaways.
For an action packed day that makes you feel like a kid again, visit the Blades and Triggers Paintball Range. Paintball is the preferred activity for teambuilding and also as a past time. In recent years it has developed into a sport that many take as far as professional. So if you haven’t played paintball, you are surely missing out.
Visit Bruma Lake Flea Market, one of the biggest flea markets in South Africa. Here you will find almost anything you can think of. Spend a few hours browsing (or shopping)…
