PARENTS who are still racking their brains for ideas to keep their young ones occupied after the schools close this December don’t need to look any further than Addo Elephant National Park.

The December school holidays will kick off in a big way for children with the fun, yet educational two-week long programme that starts on December 3 until December 14 from Monday to Friday.

All activities are offered at no cost, with the exception of the guided game drives.

These are for a minimum of four and a maximum of 22 children and will take place daily between 09:00 and 11:00 at a discounted rate of only R70 per child.

This is available only to children between the ages of five and 13.

The only other costs payable are the conservation/entry fees into the park. Parents need to sign indemnity forms for the little ones at the game drive reception desk before they participate in the programmes.

The afternoon programmes are open to both the young and young at heart and will take place between 13:30 and 15:30 daily.

On Mondays, youngsters will explore the PPC walking trail and learn all about the medicinal plants to be found in the park.

Crafty Tuesdays will get the creative juices flowing with a wide variety of wildlife crafts. Children will get to know the “Small Five” on Wednesdays and get up close and personal with slithery snakes on Thursdays.

Finally, end the week off with Friday movie corner days – the park has a selection of DVDs to watch on a big screen.

Space is limited, so make early bookings for your children through the park’s people and conservation department at or
