Once again Map Studio has added a worthwhile book to my shelves, with Lisa Mc Namara’s ’Family Fun’. A fabulous book to take on holiday if visiting Cape Town or Durban and just perfect for ‘at home’ holidays and week-ends We often forget how many exciting places are actually just on our doorstep. I challenge you to get out more with the family and have some crazy fun this summer!
I was very happy to see that I have been to most of the places in Jozi, but there are still a few that have not been discovered. Lisa Mc Namara reveals over 180 child-friendly sites and activities, and she has included all the necessary information and contact details.
Some of the mentioned places I have not yet discovered include Honeydew A-Maize-Ing Mazes, the Lipizzaner centre, and Bryanston’s organic and natural market. Places I have visited include Montecasino, Gold Reef City, Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens and Bill Harrop’s Orginal Balloon Safari’s.
In Durban you can enjoy Groovy Balls Adventure Park, Phezulu Safari Park, and Ushaka Marine World. Cape Town is filled with loads of family fun and the whole family will enjoy places like Kirstenbosh Gardens, Boulders Beach, the Penguin Colony, Cable Way and Duiker Island boat trips.
Whether you are in the City or at the Sea, Family Fun is a wonderful guide to keep handy any day of the week.
