We took a day out to the beautiful gardens and little animal farm they have. We enjoyed the outing as well as the cold beer and carrot cake. It is a beautiful garden with all colours of flowers.

The zoo in the park has some unusual animals for kids to enjoy. The park itself requires better upkeep and maintenance. We were quite disappointed given that this is Easter and one of the busy times for the KZN province.
