With just a little over a week left to spoil the best dad in the world it’s not too late to book a lunch, dinner or theatre reservation and if he lives in another province, get a cheap airline flight with ‘FlySafair’, ‘Kulula’ or ‘Mango’ to ensure that your amazing dad has the most enjoyable day of the year and truly feels loved and appreciated!

Cape Town:

For the dad that’s one of a million rugby enthusiasts, spoil him with a first-time visit to the ‘Springbok Rugby Museum’ located in the ‘V&A Waterfront’ where he’ll be engulfed in rugby history and much more. After dragging him away from rugby, treat him to an appetising meal at ‘Quay Four’ with a free Castle draught for dad’s only. Phone 021 418 4741 for more information.

An experience never to be forgotten is giving your dad the pleasure of lunch or dinner at the ‘Stardust Restaurant and Theatre’ where every serving is nothing less than scrumptious, be it roast beef, deboned chicken or baked fish, finishing with a lip-smacking desert. While being served by a ‘singing waiter’ your dad will be entertained beyond his expectations by a group of highly talented waiters. A cuisine and entertainment experience to be had at least once in a life-time with bookings being absolutely essential on 021 462 7777.


A family affair for fathers and grandfathers to be spoilt is a trip down memory lane to the ‘Johannesburg Zoo’, now over 100 years old! Besides the many animal attractions and reminiscing, especially for Father’s Day there will be live musical entertainment! Once dad’s feeling hungry and weary, whisk him off to ‘Moya’ at Zoo Lake for a great steak with a complimentary Windhoek draught to end off a fun filled Father’s Day. To avoid disappointment, phone ‘Moya’ on 011 646 0058 for a reservation.

Take a challenge with fun and laughter at the ‘Compu-kart Raceway’ in Edenvale with your dad who loves excitement and still has plenty of oomph in him. As you’re racing each other around the track, managing to avoid crashing you ultimately know that you have to let him win especially on Father’s Day! Afterwards share exciting moments of your race with laughter over a couple of cold beers. For further information phone: 011 608 1374.


On a sunny day nothing beats good company, beer and a great braai with every dad claiming to be the ‘braai fundi’. Make Father’s Day this year the exception by surprising your dad with a braai of note at the ‘Wodka Restaurant’ located at the ‘Waterfront Hotel and Spa’. Instead of the ‘braai fundi’ sweating it out under the sun, your amazing dad can just relax, savouring each mouthful of his favourite meat dish, expertly prepared by a world-class chef. Beware as your dad will want to know why you’ve never brought him here before! To make a reservation for this wonderful Father’s Day event, phone 031 332 8190.
