Fun activities for kids to do in Mossel Bay

Mossel Bay is a harbor town and an important tourist destination in the Western Cape. It is a beautiful place with lots of activities to do with kids. 

Below you will find a short list of fun activities and things to do with kids in Mossel Bay.


The Dias Museum, Mossel Bay

This museum offers historical insight into the role of early European sailors; it was named after Bartolomeu Dias who was a 15th Century explorer.

What activities for kids and other attractions can you see at the Mossel Bay Dias Museum?

The Portuguese sailing ship, known as a caravel: The kids can have fun and explore a life-size replica of this sailing ship. These ships were small and fast and helped the Portuguese round the tip of Africa. Bartolomeu Dias was the first to safely land at what is today called Mossel Bay.

Post Office Tree: An ancient Milkwood tree where Commander Pedro de Altaide left a very important letter. He left this letter under or near the tree thus making it the believed site of the first post office.
