Kids at Blanco

“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.”  ~Elizabeth Lawrence …And it’s called Blanco, the best loved family getaway in the Eastern Cape.


Blanco is a wonderland for children to explore: whether it’s on bicycles through the Eastern Cape countryside, on horseback through our beautiful grounds or on our tractor cart that takes them to an enchanting fairy playground. It’s no surprise then that kids love Blanco. Many of them love it so much, in fact, that they have been known to hide under beds while mom and dad are packing the car and getting ready to go home. Blanco is South Africa’s premier Family Getaway in the Eastern Cape and one of your best options for Family Holiday Ideas.

Blanco also loves kids, so much so that we offer them their own dining room called the Lion’s Den and a playroom, aptly named the Wreck Room. And that’s exactly what it is: their own space to let their hair down and do exactly as they please. It’s their holiday too, after all, and Blanco caters to kids of all ages to ensure they have the time of their lives.

At Blanco there is no TV or technological devices to numb their brains and keep them seated. Instead we offer a stimulating environment to inspire creativity, match their energy levels and really just let them be kids. That means simple stuff like playing in the mud and, yes mums, getting their hands dirty while everyone gets to enjoy a Family Holiday. It means climbing trees with no shoes and, for the duration of their stay with us, running riot while our dedicated nannies run and clean up after them.

Farm life is a long-lost tradition in modern living and we encourage children to milk cows, feed rabbits and ride horses with reckless abandon. We play outside games in the fresh air and offer treasure hunts to help them release pent-up energy and stimulate them across acres of unspoilt Karoo landscape. Blanco provides a carefree Family Getaway in the Eastern Cape that guarantees to nurture and inspire kids of all ages.
