Design idea for an African safari playground theme

African safari playground theme

WOW: An African Safari theme includes a Giraffe, an Elephant, a Gorilla, a Zebra and a Crocodile in the waterhole. The play structure with the Tree House is a hideaway for the safari explorer after swinging in the lianas with the Five Way Swing and the Cableway. The safari theme with its different play activities attracts children from 1 to 12 years old.

STAY: The many varied physical play opportunities keep children playing; rocking, balancing, spinning, sliding, swinging and swizzing down the Cableway. The safari theme also stimulates the dramatic play when children imagine that they are on the safari, a place where adventures can happen, and this will keep the children playing over and over again. As they grow older and can take up more challenges, the playground can keep them stimulated as the challenges start from the age of 1 year and continue until the children are 12 years old.

DEVELOP: The animal themes in the playground stimulate the language development when children name animals and use them for dramatic play. There are rocking and sensory play for the youngest and at the other end of the age span, the Cableway adds thrill and body confidence for the soon-to-be teenagers.
