Your kids will be begging to go for a train ride. The park has three mini train replicas that chug on a 1.2km train track through tunnels and over bridges around the property. There’s also 4 amazing swimming pools, 16 waterslides, flying swings, cup and saucer rides, a horse carousel, a mini bike track, jungle gyms and trampolines.

Elemental Play Garden at Spier Wine Farm

Come play in our new garden! Our latest addition to the farm is our Elemental Garden. A beautifully curated space…

Posted by Spier Wine Farm on Tuesday, September 8, 2020

With its diverse array of restaurants and delis, picnics, self-guided walks, craft market and eagle encounters, it’s easy to spend a whole day at this estate. But the Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery and the Farm Café, which both lead onto the lawns with its shady trees and rocks to climb, are the most child-friendly.

The Elemental Play Garden is the farm’s newest playground addition: a largely indigenous walled garden divided into four quadrants with a slide landscaped into mounds to crawl through, a swing bridge, balancing beams and various fun water features.

Why the kids will love it?

Besides having the freedom to climb, crawl, and splash each other in the enclosed area, we’re told the kids are also fascinated by the “talking sculptures” art installation at the entrance to the farm.

What about the parents?

You’ll like that there’s so many different things for the kids to do while you take some time out from the busy week in a first-class location.

Other perks

There’s free wifi, a baby changing table and highchairs, a kids menu, and ample parking.

Where is it located?

R310, Baden Powell Drive, Stellenbosch

How much does it cost?

Entrance is free.

Opening times

Open daily from 10am to 5pm.

The Alpaca Loom

Kids can feed and pet the friendly animals with their funny hairstyles, and for those hungry for education, the owners offer daily barn tours. Part of the 45-minute tour is a visit to the breeding area, where – with a bit of luck – children can see baby alpacas. There are also chickens, geese, peacocks as well as two dromedaries and a few horses to pet and feed.

Why the kids will love it?

The jungle gym sits right in the middle of the petting zoo, with the llamas happily strolling around in between. Kids also love taking a “ride” on the sculpture of bulls in growing sizes.

What about the parents?

We reckon you’ll have as much fun meeting the funny-looking llamas and alpacas and learning more about them as the kids do.

Other perks?

There’s a coffee shop (yes!) and the weaving studio on the farm sells a range of luxurious, handcrafted alpaca scarves, shawls, cardigans and hats.

How much does it cost?

The Barn Tour is R100 for adults, and R70 for kids, which includes free entrance to the petting zoo. You can also opt out of the barn tour and just visit the petting zoo at R20 per person. Feed is available at R20 a serving.

Opening times

Daily from 10am – 5pm.
