Are your kids joining in the outdoor fun? Head down to Cool Runnings for some Tobogganing – a fun activity where you can sit in a sled speeding down a stainless steel track (in Africa we don’t do it in the snow) at around 40 km/h .

Lucky for you, you can control your speed with the built-in brake!
