Children's Activities

Franschhoek welcomes the young ones who join their parents when visiting the winelands.  We have loads of fun and active activities to keep them moving and occupied.

 Choose from animal-related or outdoor activities or being more sedate and creative.

Activities for little ones

Even though we are famous for our wines, the little ones can still have loads of fun in our valley.


Get active and adventurous
For those looking to get really active, how about a downhill Scootour?  This Adrenalin pumping speed activity is fun for the whole family.  Kids under 10 stand in front of their parent on the big-boy scooter and older kids get their own. Two routes are offered in Franschhoek and rate includes transport between the two.  

The best fun you can have on 2 big fat wheels.

Kids fun at Boschendal
The Tree House is an exciting new edu-play centre which offers kids aged 4 - 14yrs a chance to enjoy an authentic outdoor and farm experience under the leadership of our Tree House team whilst you can unwind and take a well-deserved break.

The Tree House team have put together a calendar packed with supervised activities which are offered complimentary and exclusively to all of our Accommodation and The Werf Restaurant guests.

There are different activities for each day. You are welcome to book more than one activity in a day. Kids are advised to wear comfortable clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. It is important that you book your children at least a day before with our reservations team as we are becoming quite popular and we don’t want your kids to miss out!
