Visiting May with children - Ideas if weather is bad

Hello, we are frequent visitors to south Africa, normally child free.

However, some friends are coming with us in May, kids are 3 and 15 months and we're staying in a villa in Camps Bay and I'm after some suggestions of what to do if the weather is bad please with kids that would still mean we get to see the area, and entertain the kids

Many thanks, Me :-)

Hi Traveller,

good to hear from you.

We will be staying at the Boulders Lodge hotel so no worries about parking. We're in Knysna just now and will be moving on to the Bontebok reserve tomorrow. Holiday is everything I'd hoped for and more.

Many thanks for the ideas- good job I ignore rudeness from certain members.

We'd thought of the aquarium , and they like buses so hop on sounds fab.

Thanks xxx

Check out Filmfan's ideas on the forum topic, "Children in January." Looks like good ideas there.

Sorry, I meant to say Lyn M's ideas on what to do with children in January. The question came from Filmfan.

We lived in CT when my kids were still toddlers and it is a bit short of rainy day activities - most kids' activities and play areas are outdoor based. But take a look at:
