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. Toddler play area 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.  Indoor play area with 3 levels As a parent I loved that it is a save place I can take my son to play.  When you enter each

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.
