AWOL Tours is offering special educational hiking and cycling outings for children as schools closed in South Africa for the month of August.
Guaranteed daily departures for three hours at 10am – 1pm or 2pm -5pm (weather permitting) on various educational age appropriate outings are as follows:
- Cape Town city cycle tours departing from the V&A Waterfront Clocktower taking children round Cape Town Stadium, Greenpoint ecopark, and Sea Point Promenade. These engaging and informative tours will give children an introduction into the complex history and landscape of early Cape Town.
- Nature walks and hikes available for all ages. Parents can deliver children to Silvermine East at 10am daily. Each group of 4 children will be allocated a Nature guide who will grade children into different interests and fitness abilities. For younger children easy walks with treasure hunts and games, whilst older children can do walks up to Waterfall looking for tadpoles en route. For those that are keen we can even hike up to explore Boomslang caves.
