Updated March 2019
For the last 5 years of my life, basically since the day I found out I was pregnant with Alyssa, – my definition of the word party had a whole new meaning.
Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine the amount of kids party venues in Cape Town that I would visit, not only to host my own kids birthday parties – but to attend their friends and cousins parties too!
Alyssa and Aidan’s social calendar is lit, I tell you!
If you’re anything like me who leaves everything until the last minute, it’s always a mission trying to find party venues that would suit your kid’s party theme or accommodate your budget on such short notice.
I’ve hosted my kids parties at some gorgeous venues and we’ve also attended parties at places that we really loved, so I thought I’d share a list of our favourite kids party venues in Cape Town that you may find useful.
If your kid is an animal lover, Giraffe house in Stellenbosch is a perfect spot to host your kids party. Meet Gerry the Giraffe, the cutest zebras and all their friends. Your kid’s party can be hosted under a 100 square metre thatched roof lapa with drop down sides in case of cooler weather. Kids will be able to interact and feed some of the animals.
There’s also a play area at Giraffe House and it consists of 3 jungle gyms and a lawn area.
Weltevreden Estate – Carnival
The Weltevreden kids carnival offers loads of fun activities designed for kids of all ages. This place has sentimel meaning to us as we hosted Alyssa’s first birthday here. It boasts a huge Children’s Playground along with a build-a-pizza area, a confectionery counter, loads of shade and awesome natural surroundings!
The carnival area has two trampolines as well as two HUGE jungle gyms.
Karmanel Farm and Function Venue
If its the Farm experience you’re after, then this is a really awesome venue. Kids can feed the goats, cuddle with the Geese and meet the little piggies. The spacious party venue can be decorated to your heart’s content, for whatever theme you choose!
Parents are also able to relax under the shades of the trees at Karmanel, while the kids play in eyesight.

Enchanted Forest is a kids party venue in Hout Bay. They offer a number of party options & will arrange everything on the day. Alyssa attended a Fairy themed party at the venue, which was absolutely fitting for the theme! There is a huge open play area for the kids with loads of space for running and climbing.
Aidan attended a party at Bounce World and he’s still talking about it! Bounce World has an assortment of jumping castles and inflatable structures that are suitable for kids from 2-9 years old (with a separate toddler area for kids 1-4 years of age).
Parties are hosted in a party room and there are various packages available!
It seems that adults love this place as much as kids do!
The Kids Gym
The Kids Gym in Sable Square can host your fit kids birthday party!
The Gym offers 2hour party sessions where dedicated trainers will supervise the kids and make sure it’s action-packed. From fun games to building obstacle course’s, your kids will get to move their bodies!
We went to a party there recently and the Zumba classes for the little ones are just the cutest!
Alyssa and Aidan absolutely adore Bugz Playpark. We hosted Aidan’s 2nd birthday at Bugz and had the most amazing time. The Bugz staff made the birthday boy feel super special and the kids had an absolute ball. We love the fact that even after the party slot is over, the kids have access to the playpark for the rest of the day.
Bugz has a number of indoor and outdoor party venues within the park and a number of party options to choose from.
Bash is a really cute kids party venue that hosts baking parties, cooking classes, baking workshops, spa parties and activity play parties. The venue provides party décor, cakes as well as catering. There’s a play area with stunning educational wooden toys, as well as a coffee shop that sells delicious coffee, quiche, sandwiches and more.
Bash has a party venue in Durbanville and another in Paarl.
The Kids Cooking Club
We hosted Alyssa’s 6th birthday at the Kids Cooking Club and she is still talking about it! The kids learned how to make cupcakes from scratch, had some fun in the play room before enjoying a meal together while their cupcakes were baking. They then got to decorate their cupcakes and proudly took it home with them. There are also other cooking party options available at The Kids Cooking Club – like pizza making and cake decorating.
If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate your kids birthday, Be.Up has something for all ages. Choose from 3 different packages based on the age group. Kids can go crazy on the trampolines, Clip and Climb and the incredible maze.
23 Jump Street
If you’re looking for an indoor jump-park or play area, then 23 Jump Street in Table Bay Mall is a really great option.
You can get your our own private space to celebrate and relax whilst the kids (and adults) gain full access to the jump park and jungle-gym.
Each party is 2 hours in duration and priced per child.
Gordons Gymnastic Club
For fully supervised jumping, swinging and balancing fun orientated birthday parties, you can give Gordons Gymnastic Club a call for more information.
Alyssa and I attended one of her friend’s parties here recently and it was such a unique experience. The party is fully supervised and hosted by the staff of the gymnastics club. I really love this venue and I even got in on the jumping and swinging fun with some of the other Moms 🙂
Bonus – All kids who attend the party gets a really cool special gift from Gordons Gymnastic Club!
Black and Brew
Black and Brew in Hout Bay boasts an amazing playground, sand-pits, splash-pools (when the water-crisis subsides) as well as a barnyard full of colourful animals!
The venue offers different party options, to help meet your needs and your budget.
Plus, I can vouch for their amazing cakes! You’ve Been Baked can whip up any cake for your child’s perfect party!
Happy Party Planning!
I’ll be sure to keep this list updated as we come across some more venues.
