Rondevlei

Rondevlei is a little known wetland and is well worth the visit. There are a wide variety of birds, wonderful hides, and you may even get a glimpse of a hippo.

Monty goes to visit his cousin the water mongoose and has a wonderful adventure learning all about beaks and feet of different birds and having a ride on a hippo. Children visit the bird hides, climb the lookout tower and see if they can spot the hippos.

Boulders

Boulders is home to the African penguin and a fine example of cape granite. The beaches are secluded and from the board walks one is able to get excellent viewings of the penguins and their antics.

Children have the opportunity to get close to penguins on the board walks, enjoy the sun and the sea and do fun activities on the beach. They finish the outing by having a picnic of their own on the grass above Seaforth.

Higgeldy Piggeldy Farmyard

Situated on the Imhoff Farm, one of the oldest farms in the Cape, Higgeldy Piggeldy farmyard is perfect for children to have encounters with domestic animals whilst enjoying the ambience of a farm like environment.

Children visit the Higgeldy Piggeldy farmyard at Imhoff Farm near Noordhoek. They can enjoy close encounters of a farmyard kind by learning to make their own butter, find out how a jersey is made or test an egg to see if it is fresh for breakfast. They can get up close to the animals and have a go at feeding them if they want to.
