Don’t forget your dad on Youth Day.

For the first time ever, we will be celebrating FATHER’s DAY and YOUTH DAY on June 16, how incredible is that.

Here are a list of what you can surprise your dad with this Father’s Day.

INDOOR ROCK CLIMBING

All levels are catered for, whether you’ve done it before or are a complete beginner at Hangtime climbing gym.

BEER, BRAAIS & BUFFETS

Father’s day is a great excuse for an early morning boerie and beer, but if you’re feeling like trying something special, see some of the great specials available in and around Cape Town.

ANIMAL ENCOUNTERS

Find out how close your dad will get to a fully grown lion. Several lions, in fact. And a rooikat, a leopard and Bengal tigers. Take him on a cool big cats experience at Vredenheim Wildlife & Winery, where he gets in for 50% less on Father’s Day at Vredenheim Animal Farm in Stellenbosch.
Cost: Normal price: Animal Farm: R45 per kid, R25 for adults, Big cats: R75 for adults and R50 for kids .

FATHER’S DAY LUNCH & CRAFTS BEER PAIRING TWELVE APOSTLES

RED BUS AND SPRINGBOK EXPERIENCE

Cape Town’s beloved Red Bus, the City Sightseeing bus, is offering a Father’s day special for dads and two kids to explore the Mother City hop-on-hop-off style and visit the Springbok Rugby Museum for only R200. With the upcoming match against France on 24 June, it’s the perfect time to put on your green and gold and visit the interactive Springbok Museum at the V&A Waterfront. The museum is known for making rugby “come alive” through technology-driven exhibits and games giving dads and kids the opportunity to test their rugby skills.
