Head for a winter holiday full of sunshine at Boardwalk hotel and casino in Gqeberha, where the average June and July temperature is a high of 21 degrees.
“Our mild winter climate makes this Sun International four-star beachfront hotel the ideal mid-year school holiday location. Even if you don’t want to join the winter bathers in the ocean, you can still get your adrenalin pumping with a walk or run along Gqeberha’s stunning promenade – and we have plenty of entertainment to keep the kids busy,” said Boardwalk General Manager Tati Tsunke.
From June 23 to July 16, Kids’ Corner Creche at Boardwalk Casino has a programme to keep your children aged six months to 10 years busy and safe, while parents enjoy some well-deserved time off, visiting the Casino, Camelot Spa or have a meal.
From 10am until 4pm, there will be electronic and musical games, biscuit decorating, blindfolded drawing, face painting, story book time, balloon bashing and more. Older children can create their own stress ball or bracelet with jelly beans. Older children aged 10 to 17 can visit the online gaming lounge, Sun Gamers, where Fortnite and Call of Duty await, under adult supervision.
Entertainment for adults can be found on the casino floor, at one of the slots machines or try your luck at a tables game including Blackjack, Roulette or poker. On July 8, the extraordinary duo of Loukmaan & Emo Adams will present a hilarious and musically enchanting evening with their “Two of a Kind” show at the Boardwalk International Convention Centre.
Shopping is a pleasure at the sparkling new adjoining Boardwalk Mall, offering an exciting mix of kids’ entertainment, movies and retail, with a variety of restaurants including a Mexican fiesta at Mochachos, great steaks and burgers at River Hawk Spur, awesome coffee and light meals at Famous Bean Café and hearty Portuguese fare at Bem Vindo. Have a memorable encounter with whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and birdlife from the water with a Raggy Charters cruise, which takes in St Croix and Brenton islands. Just 30 minutes’ drive from Gqeberha, get closer to nature at the family-friendly Nyosi Game Reserve. Take a game drive to see elephants, cheetahs, buffalo and a host of plains game, followed by lunch and a gin or wine tasting.
“Nelson Mandela Bay has so much to offer, in malaria-free surroundings, all within a short driving distance. At Boardwalk, you don’t have to worry about loadshedding or watershedding, meaning you will love every moment of your stay with us,” Tsunke said.
