During the December school holidays, kids can indulge their wild side at our exciting and interactive events for little ones. Say hello to snakes, get close to birds and have a whole lot of fun. Events are free, but seats are limited, so book now.

Even if you aren’t heading to the parks this holiday, your kids can still have a wild adventure. Wild and Cape Union Mart have joined forces to bring you FREE, fun and informative kids events this December.

Join us for a morning of exciting encounters with the animal ambassadors of rehabilitation centres. There will be a chance to get up close and personal with snakes, crocs and other reptiles, as well as hang out with feathered friends like owls and vultures.

After the shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town, gear up for a chance to tackle the climbing wall. Entry is free of charge and includes snack packs for the kids and discounted shopping at Cape Union Mart. Places are limited, so RSVP now to enjoy photo opportunities and giveaways galore.
