At the week-end bring a picnic and relax under the acacia trees after exploring the giant Elemental maze.

-Constructed from indigenous reed fencing and centers around 5 Secret Gardens.
-These garden refuges are each differently themed and planted to portray the basic elements of Fire, Water, Earth, Air and Reflection or Thought.
-Each garden is a hub within the design and once found will unlock new and untraveled parts of the Elemental Maze for the players.
-The Elemental Maze is played on a multi-station quiz trail format and each team is given a clipboard, a pencil and an answer sheet.
-There are two components to the quiz, the Garden Quiz and the BrainBox Quiz.
-The Garden Quiz requires each team to complete a basic task in each of the five Secret Gardens
-Whilst the BrainBox Quiz requires each team to find the 10 individual quiz boards that are scattered all over the maze, and to answer the general knowledge questions found thereon. Having completed their task, and in so doing having ‘solved the maze’, teams need to find their way to the exit.
-The Elemental Maze operates all year round Tell a friend.

For the first time in Africa, brought to you by National Geographic, in partnership with Sci-Bono, this engaging and interactive exhibition will give young minds the opportunity to explore our amazing and very weird world. Based on the wildly successful Nat Geo Kids magazine feature and a best-selling series of books, the facts and interactive features cover a broad range of topics including science, food, pop culture and more.

Did you know that girls have more taste buds than boys do? Or that slugs have 3,000 teeth and four noses? And who knew that gorillas burp when they’re happy? Kids, and adults alike, are invited to celebrate everything Weird But True! through wild, entertaining, brain-bending, visually stunning photos, graphics, games and installations. This initiative aims to inspire both young and old to explore our world in an engaging and fun-filled way. Tell a friend.

Giselle, the most sublime of all romantic ballets, a heartrending story of love so powerful it reaches from beyond the grave, the ballet’s exquisite dancing lays bare a tale of passion, betrayal and forgiveness with one of the greatest of all ballerina roles at its centre.

In the role of Albrecht, a young aristocrat whose dalliance with the unsuspecting Giselle triggers both tragedy and redemption, audiences will see Revil Yon, Leusson Muniz and Ruan Galdino. In addition to the leading roles of Giselle and Albrecht, the ballet also provides a showcase for a massed corps de ballet which appears in the ghostly second act to chilling effect.
