Three weeks of winter school holidays and what to do with the kids? The answer is to take them off to Winter Wonders at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. From Monday 29 June until Friday 17 July the garden offers activities that will have your kids creating, learning, walking and generally having fun. Simply the best time to bask in the beauty of Kirstenbosch’s winter mantle and ensure that the holidays pass by in a flash.
You could meet the wonderful Montey the grey mongoose at our storytelling sessions, join an exciting adventure walk and discover the Dinosaurs- a parent or grandparent can come too. Or simply create a beautiful piece of craft work using treasures from the garden.Dr Ernst Van Jaarsveld, renowned horticulturalist and curator of the Kirstenbosch Conservatory, will be presenting a walk and talk on fascinating South African plants and plant fossils from the Karoo, Namib and dry Bushveld regions. The choice is yours for a fun (and relaxed) school holiday.
With entry to the Garden FREE for children six years to 17 years during this period this is the perfect outing for the whole family.
