Enjoy hours of fascinating experiences and relaxation where some of the highlights include the largest collection of Zulu baskets in the world; locally woven lamps and shades; witness crafts being manufactured and view interesting and unique artefacts collected across Africa. Shop to the rhythm and beat of African music or relax and enjoy a cold drink on the thatched deck overlooking a garden of the yellow African fever trees at The Fig Tree Restaurant. Bring the binoculars and view bird species that you’ll identify from the birdersboard while the children are preoccupied exploring the play area.
