Inspire your kids in Clarens
As adults, we love a saunter to Clarens… a weekend with friends enjoying the Clarens Beerfest, Pinotage on Tap, Cherry Festival or one of many sporting weekends on offer. All such fun!
However, traveling with the children not only builds togetherness as a family, it educates the little ones on subjects the classroom can’t always offer.
Read further on where you can take your kids in Clarens this Summer:
De Molen Guest Farm
A farm stay is always such fun for little urban kiddies. Early morning wakeups to feed the lambs, collect eggs for breakfast and learn what crop is growing. De Molen Guest Farm not only provides accommodation, their dams offer a chance for fishing and their natural cave, a place for you to picnic.
Lionsrock Big Cat Sanctuary can be found 13 km outside of Bethlehem, offering previously captive big cats a trauma free life. You can bring your children to learn how these majestic animals were rescued from frightful enclosure conditions and are now being regenerated to wild living. Over 150 wild cats from across the globe have been rescued and placed at Lionsrock.
Game drives are on offer twice a day, where you will not only spot a bengal tiger, wild dog, lion, caracal and a few other beautiful cat species. There are plenty of game and bird species to keep the little ones entertained.
Hiking – Clarens Village Conservancy
Take advantage of the beautiful trails on offer in and around Clarens. Ensure you obtain your permit and read all the rules before heading out. The trails on offer are all well explained in this hiking link offering you short to long trail walks.
The Jacket Shop
A visit to Clarens is never complete without a stop at The Jacket Shop. Thousands of pre-owned jackets, in all sizes, colours and outerwear needs. You can find this delightful shop near Clarens Xtreme headquarters. Don’t forget to purchase a Basotho blanket (that’s if you don’t make it into Lesotho.)
Adventure, activity, thrills and screams, that’s what Clarens Xtreme provides! Your family can enjoy so much from a sedate putt-putt round to an adventurous quad bike tour and end off the day with a thrilling white-water rafting experience. Spending a week in Clarens? Yes you will need the week to get through all on offer at Clarens Xtreme!
Check out their Oxwagon stay just 7km outside of Clarens! With 14 restored ox wagons, bring your gang of friends and make a lasting memory of it.
What a treat to arrive to Sugar and Cinnamon after a beautiful day of walking in the Golden Gate Highlands National Park. Just 13 km’s from Clarens, you can grab a supersized burger, variety of milkshakes, freshly baked generous servings of cake and frothy cappuccino’s.
And what’s more whilst you finish off your meal, there are plenty of trinkets and exciting items for your kids to purchase with their eyes.
