With Fathers Day coming up on the 17th June 2018, I'm sure you've been racking your brain about making this special day a unique one for your man. We've all done the breakfasts in bed, booking lunch at a fancy restaurant or inviting your family over for a braai (barbecue) that this Fathers Day has become almost predictable (just being honest). If you've been wondering how to spice things up this Fathers Day, then we've got just the thing for you!
Starting his day off being spoilt with breakfast in bed is always a winner. Involve the kids in preparing a scrumptious breakfast and a steaming cup of coffee/tea. Why not throw in a few doughnuts or koeksisters for desert? Cue the macaroni-decorated cards and the 'Best Dad Ever' mugs from the kids.
Now here comes the spice. If you can arrange for the kids to be looked after for the rest of the day, our suggestions below will leave your man feeling like the luckiest and most appreciated guy in South Africa. We've also included a few exciting ways to celebrate this Fathers Day in South Africa where you can bring the kids along for the fun!
The month of June falls under South Africa's winter season and in Cape Town it can get quite chilly this time of the year. Heat things up on this full day brandy & chocolate pairing tour which takes you through Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. You're both guaranteed to arrive back home feeling relaxed, warm and ready to face routine once again.
Which man wouldn't love to descend down a 22m rock face overlooking the Kruger National Park in Hazyview? This activity will start off with an easy hike up the back of the cliff and a vertical drop at the front. Does this tour sound like something your man would appreciate?
Although this tour may seem like a cliche 'man thing' to do, he's sure to love it! Remember, this day isn't about you - it's all about HIM and this tour combines 2 things which he loves - sport and beer in the Mother City. This privately guided tour takes you to the Springbok Museum, Cape Town Stadium, Newlands Stadium and what better way to end the day than with a selection of SAB Beers! Tip: you can also book this tour for him and one of his buddies if you don't think you'll appreciate it.
Evoke your adventurous side on a guided hike in the unforgettable Wolkberg mountain range in Tzaneen. Most of the trails involve a combination of forest, grassland and waterfalls which is sure to get the endorphins flowing. If your kids are 6 years +, they are more than welcome to join in!

Early in the morning on Friday, a group of divers were taking a few people out to go shark cage diving near Seal Island, off Mossel Bay, South Africa.

There’s a guy swimming around the island!”
