Bokkie Park has an array of farm animals including goats, sheep, cows, donkeys, horses, ostriches, rabbits, pigs, peacocks, geese, ducks and guinea pigs. The kids, and adults, can spend the day meeting and feeding these animals. This is a great way to get kids to interact with and respect animals and a great learning opportunity. The park also offers braai facilities, lapas and jungle gyms, with lots of room for picnicking and running around. Feed for the animals is sold at the onsite tuck shop, but you can also bring your own vegetables from home. The animals at the park are particularly fond of carrots. Items like bread, meat and processed food should not be fed to the animals.
