Me? I’m more of a lie next to the pool, reading a book, sipping on pina coladas while the bronzed pool boy feeds me peeled grapes and fans me with palm fronds kind of person. However, family time is important and you can’t help get infected by their enthusiasm and the fun they have so they usually plead for me to come along (aka: need me to drive them there).

Exploring Cape Town: Sandboarding

This past weekend we went sand boarding thanks to the birthday voucher my sister gave my husband for his 40th birthday. Sand in every orifice. YAY! Okay, I’ll stop. It was fun. Well, sliding down the hills was fun. Climbing back up….not so much!

The kids took to it like they were born on the slopes rushing up and down for the full 3 hours. They slide down hills standing on sand boards then lying on their tummies on sand boards and then on toboggans. Sunscene provided helmets, goggles, boards and the friendly instructor (who LOVED the kids). I was happy to take around 500 photos. I can’t wait to blow some of them up and print them on canvas. Christmas presents for the grandparents, SORTED!

I would highly recommend you give this a try. It’s a little pricey but it is value for money when you consider what you get for those 3 hours. Your kids walk away learning a new skill that will leave them exhausted enough for a VERY early night and some serious bragging rights during circle time, when they get back to school on Monday morning. SunScene also does kiddies parties and, as I found when I hosted an ice skating party for the kids a few years ago, if you keep them so busy having fun for 3 hours it brings the cost of catering right down (since no one will bother to eat anything).

If other extreme adventures are you thing, I would recommend visiting Extreme Scene which is a one-stop-shop for all extreme adventures in the Western Cape. Gavin is awesome and will arrange anything you need.

Hi! Welcome to our family travel blog. We hope you enjoy the content we share here. We tried the nomad life in 2016 and, while we loved exploring 7 of the 9 regions in South Africa, we found it tough. We are back in Cape Town and enjoy going on mini adventures as a family. Our kids will soon be 11 and 14 years old, and they love the outdoors. Anton is a stay at home dad and helps me to home school the kids, while I hold down a job and find time to write. One day when the kids are older and have settled into their own lives, we plan to explore the rest of South Africa in a 4x4, so that we can also visit Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. Contact us for unique, family-friendly content about Cape Town, most of South Africa and what we have learned from our travels so far. You are most welcome to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@tazzdiscovers) to see what we share on a day to day basis. We look forward to working with you.

  1. So many travel bloggers write about travelling as young couples or singles. We try to travel as a family as much as possible (even if its just for the weekend, day or afternoon) and I also like to share it via my blog. But I’m not here to promote that. I’m here to say its great to discover another blog that includes a lot of family travel. We as a family haven’t been sand boarding although there are some fantastic spots around PE to do so.

    • Thanks for popping in and leaving such lovely words of encouragement Jonker. Lovely to have you here. We are so glad you have enjoyed our first post and hope to see you back again soon. 🙂
