Fun for kids at Madi a Thavha

Activities for kids

Madi a Thavha offers lots of opportunities for kids and their parents to experience a special and exciting holiday. While playing and enjoying activities, they learn about African culture and daily life of people living in the rural areas.


Two large family guest houses

In two large family guest houses, guests can prepare their own meals and eat together with their kids The farm house welcomes families too. We always make sure that the food is nice for kids. It's possible to eat around a fire and kids can prepare their own bread and snacks.



We can arrange a babysitter when parents would like to enjoy dinner by themselves. Kids meals can be served in the family house.



Kids who enjoy making crafts can join the Madi a Thavha Design team. They can play traditional music instruments and there is a box with African fabrics and clothes for doing performances. There are also boxes for other craft activities available, such as making necklaces, dolls and weaving. There is a playground with adventurous activities and a trampoline and a nice swimming pool.

The Elim art and crafts tour would be a nice activity for young kids. During the tour they can play traditional musical instruments at the workshop of Thomas Kubayi and at Mashamba pottery the women are available to teach the children how to make and decorate a clay pot.


Swimming pool

There is a nice swimming pool at Madi a Thavha and water games are available.


4 x 4 family tour
