Kidz at Mount View

I was a bit skeptic when my mother suggested we go to this play area at the old George Tourism Resort but I was wrong.  Kidz at Mount View is a wonderful place for a family with young children to spend a few hours while eating some food.
There is a toddler play area for kids between 1 and 3 years.  This area includes a slide, lots of balls, cars, dolls and other toys for toddlers.  My almost 3-year old son JW loved the doll house with its basin and windows with shutters.  He also loved jumping in the pool of balls.

Next to the toddler area is a big indoor jungle gym for kids from 3 to 9 years old.  This is a lovely jungle gym with 3 levels to climb and explore.  There are slides, swings, a tunnel, monkey bars and many other things to enjoy. JW loved the slide into a pool of balls and climbing through the tunnel. 

As a parent I loved that it is a save place I can take my son to play.  When you enter each child gets a card with the time that you entered.  Only after you receive your card …

The Shark Lab

I have walked pass the sign for the Shark Lab hundreds of time since I moved to Mossel Bay in 2006 and have never been inside.  On Saturday 13 May 2017 I decided to visit with my 2½ year old son, JW. JW watched a cartoon with a shark and is now fascinated with sharks. While he was interested I thought the Shark Lab was a good place to visit.
You can enter the Shark lab from 2 sides.  We entered from the Point side.  I knocked en opened the door.  It was dark inside and I could just about see a person sitting at the other end of the room.  She was very friendly and gave us about information about the animals.  I could hear that she cares a lot about them.
We then paid our entrance fee.  It was R 20 for an adult; R 10 for children from 4 years old and children until 3 was free.  For R 150 you can swim with two Smooth-hound sharks but we decided to skip this.  After paying we walked through a small curio shop and entered the aquarium through a security gate.
