During the winter school holidays we headed out for a day of kid-friendly fun in Paarl and had the best time…
I love having fun with my kids and taking them to places none of us have experienced before. Watching them see the world through new eyes and enjoying it along with them is one of my favourite things to do and we were fortunate enough to experience a whole day of new-to-us adventures…
Starting with a visit to Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm where we all learnt more about these majestic, terrifying creatures…
Our visit included a chance to hold a baby croc and then a tour to see the HUGE adults basking and floating and wallowing in the water.
The guided croc pond tour is conducted every 45 minutes and leads you across open dams via ramp ways. More than 1000 crocs are housed in these dams and you can even view them underwater through aquarium style viewing panels
During the summer months feeding of the crocs take place at the 12 noon and 3 pm tour.
My kids found the outing educational and enjoyed it but I couldn’t quite shake the feeling that these animals might end up as a pair of shoes or handbag… and I didn’t really love that idea!
