Here are our top 3 unique family activities on the KZN South Coast:
1. Flying a kite
Kites have a long and varied history and have stood the test of time. Even with the advent of technology and electric toys, they are still a firm favourite, with kids and adults alike.
Since kites were invented in China, their design often emulates birds, insects or beasts which are both real and mythical.
Kite flying is an activity that has the ability to entertain the entire family and is the perfect bonding opportunity as well.
Mary Poppins sums up how we feel about kite flying in her kite song:
With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings
With your feet on the ground
You’re a bird in flight
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite
Oh, oh, oh
Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let’s go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite

2. Visit the Mystical Butterfly Farm
Is there anything more magical than an elegant butterfly? Visit the farm for close up encounters with these creatures.
The Butterfly Farm also breeds all of its butterflies so you will be able to see them at each stage of their life cycle.
Apart from Butterflies, there are some exotic insects and curious creatures that can be visited as well. With an education centre, a tea shop, riverwalk and curio shop, there is something to keep each member of the family occupied.
