There is plenty to keep the little ones entertained. Take them to the toy museum, where young and old alike will be intrigued, or go on a tour of Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm.

If you prefer some quiet time, go to a wine-tasting session (or several!) at one of Franschhoek's many elegant wine farms and enjoy the delicious food that this scenic region is famous for.
