PONY SPLASH This interactive lesson allows children to connect and learn more about this beautiful little creature. For those curious to learn more about horses, this is a perfect gateway to introduce children to the more majestic animals. From grooming and washing to walking, guides will help the children learn how to take care of the pony in addition to taking them on an introductory riding experience.
TRAIL TALES There is much to be learnt from the tracks left behind by the desert’s rich and varied population. The footprints from the desert animals help give an insight into the patterns and behaviours of these fascinating creatures. During the experience, you can learn how to track reptiles, tell the directions they were going in and discover the animal behind the track under the guidance of expert activity officers. Designed specially for children, trail tales will awaken the imaginations of the little ones and create an unforgettable experience.
FEATHERED FRIENDS Designed specially for children, this avian adventure takes the little guests on a journey around the resort via a buggy, spotting all the resident and migratory birds. Information and stories behind the names of birds will be provided by the resort’s activity officers as they have fun with children teaching them how to imitate bird calls along the way. The little ones will be taught more about the habits of these beautiful creatures including sand bathing, ﬂying, preening, singing and plumage. Using spotter scopes, binoculars, check lists and bird books, this is a wonderful way to introduce children to the wonders of nature, while seeing the birds in their own natural habitat.
