Media Release: Holiday fun for kids at Addo
Date: 1st December 2011
Kids can look forward to having some fun while learning at Addo Elephant National Park this December.
The Park is offering a holiday programme for children on day visits and overnight stays during the December holidays. Young-at-heart adults are also welcome to join in any of the activities.
The programme, which runs from 12 to 23 December, features:
- guided game drives,
- guided walks,
- DVD screenings.
- The holiday programme activities are available free of charge to children once the entrance fee has been paid. Game drives (for children aged 6 to 12 years only) carry a cost of R50, which is a great discount on standard prices.
- Interactive talks on relevant environmental topics also form part of the programme. Children can learn about current issues such as climate change and COP17 as well as the unique features of the Park like the Big Seven.
Apart from the holiday programmes, children can find lots to do at the Park. The Interpretive Centre provides a one-stop destination for those wanting to understand more about the Park’s animals, plants, history and cultural heritage. Interactive displays are sure to engage both young and older visitors. There’s also a bird hide, underground viewing hide and short walking trail within the Park’s main camp. Overnight visitors can also take advantage of the swimming pool and the floodlit waterhole lookout point at night. Of course, there are also elephants, lions, buffalo and many other animals to spot on 120km worth of tourist roads.
An additional programme aimed at adult visitors and comprising talks by local experts and evening DVD screenings will be announced soon.
