Celebrate the spring school break with fun and informative kids events that are all about appreciating nature. Join Wild and Cape Union Mart for enjoyable and educational experiences with reptiles and entertaining presentations on our universe. Held in Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town, these events for the entire family are absolutely FREE.

The spring school holidays may be short, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pack in a lot of fun. Even if you aren’t spending the break in one of the Wild parks, you can still get close to nature at our kids events. In Pretoria and Cape Town, learn more about snakes and other cold-blooded friends, while in Durban take a trip through space in a mobile planetarium.

Reptile show in Cape Town

Are you in awe of snakes and reptiles or perhaps a little afraid? Whether you think they’re cute or creepy, these cold-blooded creatures have an important role to play in the natural world. Come get a closer look and you may just find yourself becoming their biggest fan. Stay on after the presentation for the chance to test your skills on the in-store climbing wall. Cape Union Mart’s experienced staff will be on hand to help out.
