Things To Do With Dad


Plan a self-drive 

For those dads who enjoy a little travel and exploration, why not jump into a self-drive! This is a wonderful way to explore the city and there are great spots around the Winelands to discover too. Remember to pack a basket with snacks and drinks and cruise around the most beautiful spots in the country.


Land sailing 

Yup, you read that right. Land sailing is a fantastic sport for those who get a thrill from racing at great speeds. You literally get a buggy with a sail and, if the day is truly windy. Let down your sail and go!


Lunch with loved ones 

So many restaurants offer a variety of specials this Father’s Day. If your dad prefers more intimate time with the close family, then this is a sure-fire option to explore. From burgers to fancy meals, you are sure to find something he will love.


Craft beer and canape tasting 

Try out a few craft beers and enjoy the flavourful canapes at the Twelve Apostles restaurant. Surrounded by stunning views, you are bound to spoil dad on this fun outing. Booking is advised since space is limited. 


Fly fishing 

If your dad loves fishing, this is a great treat for Father’s Day. Go fishing for trout, bass, carp, witvis and tilapia in Wemmers River. This is a catch and release spot in Franschhoek that offers a great spot for relaxing. Bring your own picnic basket or braai equipment and make an entire day out of it.


Tickle his funny bone 

Cape Town Comedy Club is the place to be for a good laugh. Go see some of the best in local stand-up comedy at one of the best venues in South Africa. They even offer meals and drinks to help make the evening perfect!


Family project 

If dad is a keen cook, collect all his favourite recipes and enjoy the day doing something special together. Check out our suggestion of making a family cookbook together and cement those precious memories.


In case of emergency 

If, by any chance, it should rain on Father’s Day, why not plan something fun to do at home. Some dads even prefer being home with their family. There are many fun indoor activities to be had at home to make the day special, like building a great fort!


Make this Father’s Day special. No matter what kind of personality your dad has, you are sure to find something that he would love here.
