If you’re keen to soak up some sunshine and enjoy a restful day out with the family, why not pack a picnic basket, stick a blanket in the car and head to the Bunny Park, on Johannesburg’s East Rand?
Visitors to the Bunny Park can commune with farm animals such as cows, donkeys, goats and chickens – and rabbits, of course. It’s the ideal day out for three- to 10-year-old children, who get to spend time with friends of the four-legged kind and learn to appreciate the natural world.
The free-roaming animals at the park are tame enough to be hand-fed, and visitors are encouraged to bring fresh carrots, or purchase veggies at the park’s kiosk. If the little ones tire of tracking down rabbits, they can also view peacocks or go on a camel ride.
The Bunny Park is perfect for young families looking to connect with nature within city bounds.
