The Animal Farm Yard & Tea Garden can be found in the Valley of 1000 Hills area of KwaZuku Natal in South Africa. The area lies between the city of Durban and Pietermaritzburg, approximately a half hours drive from Durban city centre.

This is a wonderful venue for a family outing for all ages. Children can enjoy tractor or pony rides or play on the playground equipment while Mom and Dad enjoy a light lunch. Milking demonstrations are held daily at 10h30 and 15h30 and all ages can try their hand at milking a cow. Older children can have fun on the Zipline slide and the animal touch farm is always as popular as ever.
