Two of the best things to do with kids when you’re in Limpopo

Meropa Casino Limpopo

Nestled in the heart of Limpopo, Meropa Casino & Entertainment World has undergone a spectacular transformation, investing a whopping R2.5 million over a 14-month renovation period. Emerging as the ultimate all-in-one entertainment destination in the region, Meropa introduces the WildThingz Bird and Reptile Park, coupled with an exhilarating water park that promises endless fun for families.

Adding a touch of charm, the well-established Polokwane Pets & Hobbies store, owned by the passionate Andrew Fraser, has found its new home at Meropa. This haven ensures the well-being of an eclectic mix of birds and reptiles, ranging from local treasures to exotic wonders. Visitors can marvel at the vibrant Rosy-faced and Fischer’s lovebirds, the playful lemurs, and the diminutive Fennec fox, among other fascinating creatures.

For those with a penchant for slithering wonders, WildThingz opens its doors from Tuesday to Sunday, offering captivating snake shows and informative guided tours. The spectacle doesn’t end there – Meropa now boasts a 25m swimming pool where families can engage in water games, from pool basketball to airball and freeze tag, all under the watchful eyes of trained lifeguards.

Beyond the warmer months, Meropa continues to captivate families with a plethora of activities, from a trackless train and paddle cars to quad bikes and arcade games. The venue transforms into the ultimate birthday party destination, with offerings like pool tables, table soccer, oversised chess, and a promise of an unforgettable experience.

Meropa is not just for kids’ parties, the entertainment hub introduces a private gaming room and teases an upcoming Salon Privé renovation. The newly inaugurated Meropa Outdoor Arena on the lush lawns sets the stage for concerts and exhibitions, accommodating up to 4,000 standing spectators. A delightful coffee shop, a sweet shop, a party shop, and a beachwear store add the finishing touches, providing a diverse array of experiences for all who visit. Discover the heartbeat of Limpopo at Meropa – where entertainment knows no bounds.
