offers entertainment for kids in Hammanskraal, this makes for fantastic family fun in a safe environment, with friendly staff on hand to provide information and service.
3. Go on safari!
Take in the North West in an open-air game drive or on the back of a horse. The Carousel’s knowledgeable safari guides provide information about the animal species in the environment and use their understanding of the bush to get the best sightings. What wildlife can you expect to see? Giraffe, kudu, zebra, blue wildebeest, blesbok, bushbuck, impala and over 100 species of birds to name a few...
4. Rev those engines!
Petrolheads, this one’s for you! Make your Dakar dreams come true at Rallystar. Take a hotseat spin next to a pro rally driver or test your own speed skills before moving over to the passenger seat (if you dare!). The Carousel is the only venue in Africa to offer Rallystar Motorstar sport.
5. Timeout at Shangilia Spa Boutique
The holistic approach to wellness at this boutique spa means that your spa treatment is not simply about relaxation; rather, it’s about creating a moment in time that leaves you feeling utterly rejuvenated. Located at Carousel Casino, Shangila Spa in Hammanskraal offers a plethora of beauty treatments and body therapies in a private and serene setting. View the Carousel spa menu here.
6. Smoking Aces Airsoft
Airsoft is all about dodging your opponent while trying to hit your own target with a plastic BB gun. These guns cover a greater distance than other related sports and they’re more accurate. It’s a fantastic stress release and makes for a great team-building activity.
