We choose Cape for Kids specialised outings as they are always well prepared, well presented and a real learning experience for the classes – the boys learn a tremendous amount from Ali and her well trained staff.
Cape for Kids was founded 24 years ago. Offering educational school outings based on a series of popular children’s books written by founder Ali Corbett, it immerses children in some of the best places to visit in Cape Town. It makes learning fun, through creative storytelling and exciting activities that centre on loveable characters like Monty the mongoose – an iconic character to many Capetonian kids.
Schools from all over the Western Cape have participated in outings, with over 50 000 children having delighted in the stories of Monty – and his best friend Bushy the squirrel – over the years. Aside from its aim to help gently educate children about nature and introduce them to the best things to do in Cape Town, the company is absolutely committed to CSI. Partnering with Starting Chance, Cape for Kids provides free outings to children from underprivileged backgrounds, along with books, transport and lunch.
If you’re on the hunt for kid’s activities in Cape Town, the books are also the perfect guide for the whole family – locals and tourists alike – taking you on an unforgettable tour of landmarks like Kirstenbosch Gardens, Boulders Beach and the V&A Waterfront.
Monty the Cape grey mongoose is a wonderful guide to some of the most glorious places in the Cape. Follow his adventures in these full colour story books, which also have interesting fact sections.
