So, Father’s Day is around the corner, and you’ve no idea what to do or how to pamper dad for the day? Magic Transfers is going to share with their readers, a few very important reasons why Fathers Day, or any other day for that matter, should be celebrated in Cape Town, South Africa.
As a child grows older, it becomes increasingly difficult to find more ‘mature’ activities a father and child can do together. This is why we recommend going on a wine tasting tour of one of Cape Town’s fabulous wine farm offerings. Cape Town is renowned for having the most amazing wine farms on the African continent and enjoyed widely by locals and international visitors. Take a look at some fun options to visit the wine farms in the Western Cape.
As much as a mother would like to hide away in a spa on Mother’s Day, we’re pretty sure most dads just want to go deep-sea fishing or mountain climbing or something, well, manly and rugged. Cape Town offers various adventure activities stretching as far as cage diving with great white sharks in Gansbaai to taking it off-road with a day on a 4×4 trail, or riding the cable car or hiking up Table Mountain. It’s a rugged playground out there, let dad feel like a kid again!
If you want to talk food, and you want to talk good food then the conversation’s going to have to take a turn to Cape Town. Home to several restaurants that have earned spots on the ‘Best Restaurant in the World’ list, Cape Town has many a restaurant where fathers can gorge themselves on cuisine that is, simply put, made in heaven or someplace close by. Check out Eat Outs top recommendations.
If your father isn’t a big fan of wine, you should drag him to Bascule Bar at the V&A Waterfront for a whiskey tasting experience that is nigh on stupefying. Not a fan of whiskey, huh? Then he might love to go on a Craft Beer tasting experience! Take a look at I Love Cape Town’s – A Beer Lovers Guide to Cape Town for some phenomenal recommendations that are sure to put a smile on dads face and give him a special day to remember (hopefully).
It doesn’t come any manlier than an afternoon spent chowing peanuts and watching rugby. Lucky for you, some of the sports pubs in Cape Town offers a wee bit more than peanuts. We would recommend Beerhouse on Long Street or The Happy Oak in Stellenbosch for some tasty food and of course – BEER.
If you happen to find yourself on the Western side of Cape Town, your perfect Father’s Day celebration is booked by way of a braai on a beach, of course! No arguments there. Kogel Bay, along with the coastal road between Gordon’s Bay and Rooiels, is a pretty amazing place to consider. Throw a choppie on the coals just as the sun sets behind the lapping waves.
What a perfect way to end a perfect day, wouldn’t you say? Okay, okay, we’ll stop. 😉 Don’t make dad drive around on his special day. Book a Magic Transfers shuttle instead!
