A great place to stay in KZN is definitely Ballito. With so many things to do in and around the area, you can never go wrong by booking accommodation in Ballito.
Flag Animal Farm
Flag Animal Farm is by far one of the best animal farms to visit. You can feed the animals, check them out or just let the kids run free and play in the play areas. There is also a small train ride and sometimes even, cartoon characters like Dora come out to play.
Ballito is renowned for its beaches, which are always fun for families. The water is warm and the waves are great for swimming, surfing, and body-boarding. Thanks to the excellent KwaZulu-Natal weather, these beaches are a hit almost all year round.
Visit the Animals
There are family farms, petting zoos and a reptile park in and around Ballito. These are family favourites, especially for families with children that love to touch, feed and play with little animals.
Sugar Rush Park
Catering for the very young to the slightly older but still young at heart, this park is all about fun. There are cycling trails, running trails, jungle gyms, a jump park (700sqm of pure trampoline bliss), putt putt, and the Sugar Rush Express.
Right on the rooftop of the bustling Ballito Mall, there’s a go-kart track. Here, families can test their skills and challenge one another to races around the track. If the kids want to keep busy up here, the parents can also head down to the mall for some shopping, or to grab a meal.
Go on Safari
The Rain Farm Game Lodge is only 10 minutes from Ballito and is home to the Big 5, which is made up of lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino. Trundle through the bush in a game vehicle, look out for the wildest animals, and take unforgettable pictures along the way.
