Winter Wonders adventure at Kirstenbosch Gardens

The school holidays are almost here! So,what to do with the kids?

 Take them to Kirstenbosch for the fun-filled Winter Wonders programme.

 From Saturday 25 June through to Saturday 16 July, Winter Wonders offers a 3-week programme of fun, learning, walking, creativity and story-telling. Most of the events are free of charge, and there are also family focused activities for all to join in.

 The Winter Wonders programme offers an opportunity to explore the most beautiful garden in Africa and learn more about the environment we live in. One of the highlights is a puppet show at Moyo restaurant retelling a San/African folktale followed by a guided walk with botanist, Ernst Van Jaarsveld. Don’t miss herpetologist Johan Marais who is bringing in some of his reptilian friends for children to see and touch if they dare!

The unmissable adventures include animated story readings by Struik Nature and Struik Children’s authors in the Botanical Society bookshop, treasure-hunts through the gardens, a biodiversity and waste art workshop, a nature’s treasure box experience and Kirstenbosch’s version of the Amazing Race: ‘Find 50 in Kirstenbosch! Struik Nature prizes and book hampers will be given throughout the programme.
