Ideal for the introverted and nature loving child, The Company’s Garden is said to be the oldest mordern garden in South Africa, going back to Jan Van Riebeck’s time!

The gardens open daily from 07h00 to 20h30 in the summer.
Visit the Rollercade at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. It is the first indoor rollerskate amusement park in the city and is great for the whole family. Laughs are guaranteed amongst novice skaters… I mean, who wouldn’t want to see their parents fall flat on the ground, right? They also have an arcade area that has a pool table. Parents can relax, in the Fun Lounge while the kids play. This activity is strictly for teenagers aged 16 and over and starts at R80 if you bring your own skates and R150 should you choose the company skates.
The Clay Café
If you have a budding young artist then you should definitely visit The Clay Café! They have branches in Bree Street and in Hout Bay. While enjoying your favourite meal from their farm style selection of breakfast and lunches, you can paint to your heart’s content on the wide selection of unfired bisque (these are already made pottery pieces). The café has a little play area for any child that does not like to paint.
We hope you find these places to be sanctuaries from the hustle and bustle of holiday madness.
