Melkbossie Farm Animal Sanctuary / Cape Farms

Melkbossie is a farm animal sanctuary with a beautiful, family friendly venue and lots of things to do and experience! Of course, the highlight of the venue are the many different farm animals that got a beautiful home at Melkbossie and are loved and cared for. The children can feed and pet various animals and experience a close encounter with the cutest bunnies, horses, goats and sheep, pigs and free roaming ducks and chickens. They don’t charge an entrance fee and rely 100% on donations. So make sure to support this amazing place by joining in on the activities and feeding the animals.

They also have a beautiful coffee shop and kids play area. The generous playground is equipped with swings, a slide, jungle gym, play tractor, monkey bars and plenty of sand to bring along your sand toys. Another fun activity for the kids is the 9-course putt putt area. You can play for free and enjoy a fun competition with the entire family.

In the coffee shop, you cannot only grab a small bite to eat and some drinks, but you can also get the different food bags for the animals. They cost R10 each and are specifically filled with goodies for the different animals. That way, Melkbossie makes sure that all animals get appropriate food and the animals stay fit and healthy.

On top of all the fun things to do, they also offer pony rides three times a day. You can do a horseback ride for R20 at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Tickets are available at the coffee shop.

Enjoy interacting with animals with a beautiful backdrop of Table Mountain, while the kids enjoy themselves and you have a cup of coffee and a bite to eat.

Our Experience

Melkbossie is an amazing place for young and old as we all enjoyed the animal encounter and had lots of fun feeding the different animals strolling around on the farm. The kids enjoyed the huge playground, too and were kept busy for quite some time. At the end, we also played a free!!!! round of putt putt and our daughter loved the very affordable pony ride. The kids cuddled some bunnies and were chased by hungry ducks and chickens. So we had a fun-filled day with lots of laughter and good memories.
