Located in the beautiful surroundings of Stellenbosch, Wonderdal Edutainment Centre provides children aged 5 to 13 with a distinctive and innovative experience. This indoor and outdoor play center combines creativity, advanced technology, and educational resources to create a stimulating environment that nurtures children’s imaginations and skill sets.

An Enchanting Narrative

Wonderdal follows a fascinating narrative of Kora, the Tree of Light, which grew from a single seed and gave birth to the magical and vibrant world of Wonderdal. The Amuki characters—Zylo, Gomma, Timpa, Vuvu, and Shekku—virtual inhabitants guide children through various edu-zones.

Virtual Reality Inhabitants

Through the unique bracelet made of Kora’s vines, children are taken on an exciting quest of exploration and discovery. In every edu-zone, the Amuki characters provide valuable knowledge to the young visitors while covering topics such as health and nutrition, energy and sunlight, puzzles and brain teasers, biodiversity, and gardening.

The Mesmerizing Tree of Light

The Tree of Light, Kora, is the centerpiece of Wonderdal, with its glowing branches. Children can interact with Kora through a hand crank that illuminates the tree’s canopy. Inside, a web of nets and peeping holes invites kids to climb and explore before venturing further into the virtual garden or experimenting with child-safe electricity and wind tunnel in the adjacent workshop.

The Wonder Garden

In the virtual Wonder Garden, junior gardeners embark on an immersive gardening journey, where they learn the process of plants growing from seeds. Gomma, the Amuki guardian of the earth, watches as children plow the ground, cut weeds, water the plants, and chase away pests. A sensor system detects children’s movements, ensuring an engaging and interactive experience.

The Tinker Workshop

Led by the bubbly green Amuki character Timpa, the Tinker Workshop introduces children to the world of energy, covering wind, kinetic, and electric forms. Children gain a deeper understanding of the mechanics behind these fascinating phenomena while learning how to power small light bulbs, alarms, and fans using electric boards.

A Focus on Learning and Development

The Wonderful Edutainment Centre’s primary focus is on learning and development. Educational supervisors oversee the activities, enabling parents to take a well-deserved break next door at the Babushka Deli or indulge in wine tastings at the Hazendal Wine Estate’s restaurant. Wonderful caters to children’s inherent curiosity, ensuring a memorable adventure that broadens their horizons and sparks their creativity. The center serves as a testament to the power of imagination and the importance of nurturing children’s love for learning and exploration.
