‘Just came back from a very sweet evening at the botanical gardens. We went with 5 kids aged 1-8.
‘African nights’ is a series of stations that kids go through with the help of African characters. It’s a treasure hunt of sorts with activities on the way.
The more enjoyable parts were the more interactive places. Digging for gold and the maze were among the favorites.
As it gets dark the gardens start to look magical and it added to the atmosphere for my kids and was even a bit scary for my 4 year old.
My 6 year old boy absolutely loved everything about it. Best for ages 6 and above I think.
Here were their reviews…
It was interesting- girl aged 8
Loved when we looked for gold – girl aged 7
I liked all the people who showed us the way- it was so fun- boy aged 6′
