Both kiddies and their parents can look forward to a fun-filled holiday programme in Addo Elephant National Park, packed with activities for youngsters between the ages of four and 12 during December 2013.

The Park’s People and Conservation Department will be running a special programme for the young ones between 14 and 31 December, with the exception of Christmas Day.   Children can be left in the hands of trained professionals at the Ulwazi Interpretive Centre, where they will enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment designed to suit their needs. Some of these activities will include game drives where they can explore their natural and cultural heritage and get up close and personal with the Addo ellies – the first inhabitants of the park.  There will also be activities like face painting, movies on a big screen, walks on the wild side and creative crafts, while their parents can enjoy the tranquillity the park has to offer.

Packed with interactive displays, the Ulwazi Interpretive Centre is the perfect place for curious minds. The centre provides valuable hands-on learning experiences using world-class exhibits designed to enrich and equip enquiring minds by increasing their understanding of the environment - a truly interactive experience!

The children will also enjoy the spacious play areas in which they can run, jump and have fun. These areas include an elephant jungle gym, whisper dishes and a sand box where they can trace the tracks of the wildlife seen on the game drives. 

All these activities will be available to both day visitors and overnight guests in the park.  Activities are conducted in English to include the majority of guests.  A detailed programme containing times and venues will be advertised throughout the Park from 14 December.
