A day with the family: Granja Don Pepe
A day at the farm is a unique experience for children and the best thing is to live it as a family. Sharing happiness with the little ones, while they are in contact with nature, is something you will never forget.
Don Pepe Educational Farm is located in the Maipú area. This place is characterized by its ancient groves, the typical irrigation ditches of Mendoza and a green park where you can enjoy the animals.
First thing in the morning we will pick up the whole family at the lodge. The trip to the farm is short and entertaining, the children will not get bored. On the way our guide will give them a didactic introduction about the flora and fauna of the region and the activities we will do during the whole day.
When we arrive at Don Pepe we will begin to enjoy the contact with the animals. The children will guide us in the route that they themselves want to do according to their interest. We will see sheep, peacocks, horses, chickens, different types of birds and many other species that will catch their attention. They will learn about each animal and will be able to feed them with their own hands, being this one of the most fun moments for the children.
Once the tour is over, it’s time for a tractor ride around the farm, an attraction that no family wants to miss! Climbing on the trailer we will see the animals from above and we will pass near fruit trees and aromatic plants that will make this little trip something magical.
At lunch time we will enjoy excellent homemade food with a special menu for the kids. In the afternoon we can relax under the shade of the trees while the children have fun in the playground or learn how to germinate their own plant.
This unique outdoor experience will connect us with nature and with our family. You can order a “mate” with pancakes to get to know new flavors and enjoy one of our main customs.
At SAK Wine & Travel we want our trips to be a transforming experience for those who visit us and we know that sustainable tourism is the tool to achieve it. That is why in every excursion you do with us you are contributing to the care of Mendoza’s water.
