HIGHLIGHTS FOR FAMILIES

WITH TEENAGERS

 

Special Activity:

SURF LESSON AT

MUISENBERG BEACH

 

Teens have even more adventure with a  half-day surfing lesson, held at Muizenberg Beach. Considered by many as one of the best places in the world to learn how to surf thanks to long, gentle and frequent waves, Muizenberg Beach is located on the Indian Ocean side of Cape Town, so the water is a bit warmer than other spots in the area. However it’s still relatively cold, and as such a 4/3 wetsuit is recommended (and

 provided).

GLOBAL COMMUNITY GIVE-BACK

 

This morning you will visit Daktari Animal Rehabilitation Center and then enjoy a cruise on Blyde River Dam. Daktari is one of the newer rehabilitation centers in the region, where injured animals are nursed back to health before being released back into the wild. The unique aspect of Daktari is that all of this is done in conjunction with the education of Underprivileged, orphaned, or physically and mentally challenged children, who are given the experience of nursing these animals back to health, which in turn does wonders for their own healing. Daktari is also open to the general public for day visits and experiences in the healing process. The Blyde Dam is one of the most successful dams in the country due to its relatively small surface area, yet exceptional depth. Built into the mouth of the Blyde River Canyon, and thus surrounded by the Blyde Canyon Nature Reserve, the dam is home to a wide variety of animals and more specifically, is teaming with hippos and crocs. No swimming, or private boating activities are allowed on the dam and thus the only way to truly experience the peace and quiet and the incredible beauty, is via one of the 3 pre-set boat trips held daily. The boat will take you up the river mouth to the Tufa Waterfall – one of the largest living Tufa’s in the world today, and will also show you the many wondrous geological phenomena within the canyon and the dam’s vicinity.
