Se7en’s Fabulous Fun Post #322

From a cold and wintry Cape Town, we spent last week hiking just to keep warm… the patch of tepid sunlight doesn’t seem to be doing the job lately and there are blankets everywhere. It is school holidays over here… which means busy, busy, busy… If you are looking for something to do then look no further than here: Se7en’s Winter Holiday Season Suggestions…

In Case You Missed it Last Week and the Week Before…

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is absolutely free for kids during the school holidays, you do have to buy a ticket for the accompanying adults though. They have a fantastic kids program for families… I’ll say it again… it is absolutely free. You can download the entire Winter Wonders 2016 Programme on the Kirstenbosch website.
