Johannesburg is the perfect destination for a family or group tour with loads to do for both young and old. When an adults-only day is on the agenda however, you would need something good for the children to keep themselves busy with. Depending on their age and however, you can’t just randomly drop them off anywhere.
There are many kid-friendly activities but not all offers childminder services. If at all possible, a reliable babysitter would do great to spoil them for the day. Luckily Mega Bus has been involved in group tours where both children and adults had their own activities lined up, especially in Johannesburg.
Here are things your kids can do in Johannesburg.
This is basically a very large wall-to-wall trampoline arena where you kids can satisfy their adrenaline rushes.
It has over 1 000 square meters trampoline area which consists of a general jump arena, trampoline dodgeball, foam pits, slam dunk tracks, extreme jumping, fitness classes and more. It also has an awesome iKidz arena that houses over 400 square meters of trampoline. This playground is exclusively for the children, offering a safe environment. It also has an in-house eatery known as Sliders who is famous for their mini burgers.
This is strictly for when you plan on going out as a group.
Children under 16 are not allowed here without being accompanied by an adult and probably for a very good reason. This facility offers one giant maze which takes between 60 and 90 minutes to complete as well as several other mazes that can all be done on one ticket. Visitors can arrive at the facility without booking, pay for a ticket and start exploring, it’s that simple.
Still one of the best fun and educational activities for kids is the zoo. Johannesburg Zoo also has a lot to offer. This is more suitable when your kids will be part of a group or accompanied by you.
Gold Reef City
No trip to Joburg will ever be complete for children and adults alike without a visit to Gold Reef City.
This could easily be a last destination before your return and is best enjoyed as a group. If you have a childminder, children can be taken to the children’s section for an entire day of fun while you build confidence for the more daring rides. Gold Reef City also has great eateries and other educational and entertaining offerings, so feel free to explore.
